The root of Tai Chi is martial arts.
It has always been a martial art from the beginning.
The more one perfects the martial art aspect of Tai Chi, the better the body structure & the flow of Qi will be.
So the more one learns, follows and perfects the martial art aspect – the principles – of Tai Chi, the more the aspects of meditation and health will benefit.
Neglect the martial art aspect and you neglect everything else too.
In my opinion Tai Chi gets as close as one could get to the perfect martial art.
