Tai Chi at AJ
Â ~ Ripple Staff Report -
On Thursday, February 7,Â members of the Sointula Tai Chi Club gathered at A.J. Elliott School to put on a demonstration of tai chi for the students. But the young folks had different ideas. They werenâ€™t interested in sitting on the sidelines watching the grownups do their thing. They joined right in, doing their best to follow the moves, and their enthusiasm more than made up for the fact that this was probably the first time most of them (maybe all of them) had ever tried tai chi, a graceful combination of choreography and exercise.
As for the â€śexpertsâ€ť on hand to show the kids how itâ€™s done, letâ€™s just say that they got more than they bargained for..â€¦and nobody was complaining. Who knows? Maybe thereâ€™s a young peopleâ€™s tai chi group in Sointulaâ€™s future.
