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.
