At the current university stage, university students are subjected to a variety of pressures such as role change adaptation pressure, study and life pressure, emotional pressure, economic pressure, employment pressure, and interpersonal pressure, which seriously affect their physical and mental health. Students with poor psychological tolerance may develop psychological disorders and, in serious cases, may even lead to mental illness. The results of the study indicated that 17%-20.23% of university students have psychological disorder problems. Excessive and long-lasting stress can cause psychological, depression and anxiety, physical fatigue, and discomfort, which can lead to various diseases and even death. It is, therefore, of great importance to study the state of mental health and stress among university students as well as to develop countermeasures to improve their mental health. This study focuses on the impact of martial arts sports on the mental health of university students. As a type of sport, martial arts sports are particularly special in which they can intertwine the nurturing spirit of traditional culture with the nurturing spirit of sports. The development of martial arts sports in colleges and universities can not only enhance the physical quality of college students but also promote the development of their physical and mental health. Therefore, this article takes Taijiquan as an example to explore the study of the impact of martial arts sports health on college students' mental health.
