Don’t underestimate Tai Chi

Thursday morning, I made my way down to Fairfield to do a story on a group of seniors doing Tai Chi. Tai Chi, for those who do not know what it is, is a method of exercising that incorporates versions of Chinese martial arts. It makes the person focus on balance and breathing.

So there I was, sitting at a table with 10 other ladies, all of whom had been doing this for a couple of weeks. Once they got started, it was easy to see that they put some time into their moves.

While taking photos and some mental notes, I decided that it didn’t look too difficult—maybe a little confusing at times, but not too difficult. Fast forward about a half an hour and they told me I should join in, so I did. Well, I was wrong—it’s harder than it looks.
