Taiji as fun? I find this an odd concept. I conduct classes for primarily retirees and semi-retirees in an adult education organisation. Initially they attend for the health benefits that they have heard attributed to the practice of Taiji. Once they start, they very soon begin to realise the multi-dimensional aspects and pathways that Taiji offers. It is a martial art, it has health benefits both physical and mental, it increases self-awareness both physiologically and mentally, it focuses the mind and the spirit. Taiji is not fun, it is serious and potentially life changing. With my students, I emphasize to them that Taiji will take them on a journey for as long as they live and breathe, and along the way they will become better because of it. There are fun things we might do along the way, such as weapons, the Tung Family fast form, etc., but Taiji, the full long form, will always remain the core and where they will derive the greatest benefits.
