December 31, 2020
Here we go again! No, not Momma Mia 3, just Tai chi- Winter and Spring, and hopefully a better new year!
I thought I would give you a little history on Tai chi and how it came to Nelson. It was first documented in the later half of the 1600s. The Chen family, a military clan, lived in a village where there were a lot of raids, muggings and gang violence; so the Chen family taught the villagers Tai chi. This was an excellent practice for hand-to-hand combat, while also a practice that could rebuild the body from the inside out.
For years the practice of Tai chi was a secret art....
