A quick word on spelling and terminology, due to the fact that in recent history Chinese has been translated in two slightly different ways you will see some slight variations in spelling.

Tai Chi = TaiJi

Hsing I = XingYi

You will also sometimes see the word Chuan or Quan added to the above. Quan or Chuan both mean fist (literally) and by implication boxing to Martial Art. It is often used as a contraction of the phrase QuanFa.

QuanFa = Fist Law

Tao = Dao 

Both of these mean ‘The Way’ and are shorthand for Daoism / Taoism.
