Tai Chi is totally awesome. So is yoga. I totally understand the hype, it’s warranted. I slightly prefer Tai Chi–don’t need a mat/blanket, it’s more slow paced and relaxed. Seems really good for coordination, balance, etc. Probably very effective for anyone who has suffered injury and needs some degree of physical therapy/rehabilitation, such as from skateboarding injuries or any other kind of movement-imparing injuries, probably helps deal with and ward of carpal tunnel, etc. Highly recommended. They should have little kids do Tai Chi and yoga in school. Might be good rehab for all of those sports injuries American kids keep getting. Some DVDs: Tai Chi for Health, AM PM Yoga.
