In the teachings of Taikiken-Kination, known as TaiKi, the entire body is viewed as an interactive entity with the surrounding environment.

This belief originates from the work of Sawai Kenichi, who developed Taiki-ken from Yiquan practice by Wang Xiangzhai. Kination is an amalgamation of imagination, willpower, mind, and the body's felt sense that enables individuals to concentrate their mind and body. Training exercises in TaiKi serve as mere concepts to shape the body and encourage the natural movement of the felt sense.

The Three Bao and The Seven Bao Firewall are significant concepts within this philosophy.

"Unlocking the Secrets of TaiKi: Embracing Spontaneity, Mastery, and Simplicity through Yiquan and Taikiken Combat Science" - Featuring Wang Xuanjie, Yao Chengguang, Han Jingyu, Li Jiong, Cui Ruibin, Bo Jiacong, Wang Yongxiang, Wang Yongli, and the Intellectual Property of Natural Way of Being and Intuition Efficiency.

TaiKi's aim is to become spontaneous and free from any method, which may seem paradoxical. However, like many other forms of mastery, it requires significant effort to attain simplicity. One must unlearn artificial habits and return to a natural way of being. This may involve deleting or updating obsolete software programs, erasing useless data, and defragmenting the brain to focus without bias on the present moment. In extreme cases, one may need to format their entire awareness system and install an unbiased mind.

According to Kenichi Sawai, mastering inborn intuition and the ability to act naturally in all circumstances is essential in Taiki-ken as it can help individuals in unexpected events such as love, fighting, and accidents. Taiki-ken can improve any action, and by mastering its essence, one can become more intuitive and efficient in their actions. This concept is captured in the Chinese adage, "Going into a fight must be like taking a walk, and striking your opponent must be like snapping your fingers."
