So I have for some time thought that trying something like Qigong or Taichi could be fun. This weekend we've been to an annual tea festival and saw a demonstration of Taichi. I really liked how this group's Taichi looked (I've been to some Taichi free classes - one or two previously and let me tell you not all Taichi seemed liek something I'd like to try). So it good me in a mood I need to try it right away. Unfortunately this school's classes collide with my karate and I don't want to compromise there. However, I found a similar one - a Taichi academy of a teacher of the other club's teacher. The owner of this academy seems to be doing Taichi fulltime, has some girst placed from international competition, says he's a student of a master from China who apparently also come here from time to time to give seminars and this teacher visits China to practise. The style is Chen Taichi and overall it looks really good to me. I wanter to book a three month course, but it looks like I can first try a class for free, which I would like to do. If I go, could you give me tips on what to look for in a good Taichi class or ask the instructor? I suppose one good thing is if they do martial applications and most of all if I enjoy the class. Is there anything else?
