Bit less Martial, bit more Arts...

Went to my first ever Tai Chi class yesterday. I've been thinking about learning tai chi for years. But every time I've signed up for a class, it's always either been cancelled or I haven't been able to make it... I must have tried at least 6 times.

And I was quite surprised at how hard it is. I don't know why, I just assumed I'd pick it up really easily. But it's actually a lot harder than it looks. Although I did get the mild giggles halfway through when we were doing a couple of forms and I suddenly felt like we were doing a Peter Crouch-style robot dance. Try explaining that to the rather serious (but very nice) teacher.

But I've signed up for the course and I'm looking forward to it. I've always fancied a bit of martial arts. Not that I can see this being much good in a fight... Although I've never actually ever had a fight and hopefully never will. But I don't think slow motion waving of the arms will do me much good on Union Street on a Saturday night.

I'd give it up and concentrate on the Air Sex, as Kyklops suggests...

I hope it does you good. It's meant to be very good for the soul, and for centering the mind. You may come to important realisations about your life. You'll be up there on a hill somewhere, dressed in what look like your pyjamas, standing perfectly still in the position of the Squatting Dog or something, and you'll have an epiphany.

"My God, I look like a tit."

Does this mean I have to start calling you 'Grasshopper'
