More on Hokum later, possibly, now that a more detailed posting has arrived at RSI-UK.
Our class has now completed the 18 move Chen style form. Now that our front brains know it, it is time to begin the work. My hips have certainly got to loosen up a bit for those kicks!
The Monday routine will change a little when it starts up again in September since Aarvo is preparing to move away to Canada (in January) and James Langcake will be taking over as the main teacher.
I feel I want to take things a little further now and will probably attend the monthly Saturday pushing-hands workshops. I may be on the lookout for other class-y things in London or the SE. Know any?
But for now I'm happy to let the summer go on with me practising what I already know.
The blogpost_title is what the kids say to their bewildered mums, now that I've started practising Tai Chi in parks. You see, I've got to do something other than running, when I'm out not running (this knee tendinitis thing wants to make me do fewer miles). Honestly, the kids have got more idea about life than grownups. Not only do they ask in the first place (adults pretend not to notice things that are wierd or disgusting), but also they can guess what it's about and can do the noises : hey yaaaHHH! ah so!! Chop! **"KICK"**
Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those cats were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightning
But they did it with expert timing
