Slow and steady wins the race

25 May 2009

It's been two months since classes started, but many staff and students remain unaware that the martial art of Tai Chi is alive and well, and in mid-kick on campus.

Classes are now held by Richard Jordi, who has practised Tai Chi for 13 years, at the Mac Club in the Bernard Fuller building on medical campus on Tuesdays from 12h45 to 13h45. Like most martial arts, Tai Chi reduces stress, strengthens the body and improves well-being, only in slow motion. And in a crime-ridden society such as ours, who knows when you might be attacked by a narcoleptic zombie overdosed on benzodiazepines?

Anyone interested in the Tuesday lunchtime Tai Chi classes should contact Richard.
