Tai chi training is like saving £1 a day. It does not sound like much but in a year you have £365. In three years you have saved over £1000. What if you saved £5 a day?
Although the exercise is moderate, it is effective. The results are consistent, gradual and on-going. There are no set-backs or injuries.
Rather than thinking of the short-term, why not acknowledge the fact that you will be using your body for the rest of your life?
Tai chi was designed with this in mind. It keeps you mobile, alert, coordinated, strong, fit and healthy. The sooner you begin, the longer you will benefit and the better you will get at taijiquan.

Fix yourself up
Instead of accepting inevitable deterioration, why not aim to slow it down?
Medical research has proven that a small daily commitment to taijiquan practice can produce tremendous results over time. The training is concerned with re-energising the body.
Tai chi is all about finding balance between action & inaction, activity & rest, doing & not doing, mobility & stability, work & play, self & other.
The training is friendly and relaxed yet still effective. There is no
pressure put upon the individual. You train at your own pace and progress as
you wish. Everyone in the class is treated the same, there are no favourites
