It is a Chinese symbol known as yin and yang. It is also called a Tai-Chi symbol.
Taiji Quan of china aka grand ultimate fist style is associated with Daoism or the Yin Yang symbol. There are many forms of tai chi, one of the oldest styles is Yang family tai chi, my personal favorite!

i do not believe that this symbol is a part of a religion but more a symbol of the three main energies of the body; Shen, Chi and Jing. These energies are taught specifically with Acupressure/Acupuncture and Shiatsu.

The main symbol of Taoism is the Yin Yang. Yin and Yang are both types of Chi/Qi (Energy). The black part of the symbol (Yin) has a white speck inside it and vice versa. This means that people who act in an inadequate way are still able to behave in the approved manner and people who behave well are still able to misbehave.
The Chi Rho Symbol is a superimposed X and P. This symbol was used by Greeks to mark passages and is also a symbol for the crucifiction of Christ.

Yin and yang combine opposing but complementary forces to create harmony in nature. By using t'ai chi, a person can bring this principle of harmony into their own life.
The origin of the Chen family style of Tai Chi Chuan was not historically known until the seventeenth century. There are five major styles of Tai Chi Chuan: Chen style, Yang style, Hao style, Wu style, and Sun style.The Chen family style is the oldest and parent form of the five main tai chi chuan styles.
Tai Chi Zero is a martial arts style film created in 2012. Yang ventures to Chen Village to dabble in the arts of tai chi. Villagers were strictly forbidden from teaching outsiders about the most powerful form of tai chi and a man planning to construct a railroad through his village prompted Yang.

My favorite unique DVD on Yang Style Tai Chi is "Yang Style Fighting Applications" by Bruce Frantzis (you can get it online). If you want a video of the form to copy from and learn, there are actually plenty on Youtube, just search "Yang 24" (that is the simplest, easy to learn, well known form which many references to exist for).
The most popular Tai Chi DVD series are The Tai Chi - 24 Hours, Sunrise Tai Chi, Totaly Nude Yoga and Tai chi, Tai Chi for Health - Yang Short Form with Terrence Dunn etc.
Chi is the Greek letter that looks like a capital script X
