Tai chi (Mandarin: tàijí 太極, an abbreviation of tàijí quán 太極拳, literally "Supreme Ultimate Boxing") is an internal Chinese martial art 武术 practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. Though originally conceived as a martial art, it is also typically practiced for a variety of other personal reasons: competitive wrestling in the format of pushing hands (tui shou), demonstration competitions, and achieving greater longevity. As a result, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims with differing emphasis. Some training forms of t'ai chi ch'uan are especially known for being practiced with relatively slow movements.
From 2-3pm, Monday-Friday, we'd like to have someone come in to lead Tai Chi practice in our beautiful open common area while clients wait for their rides home. Come lead Tai Chi with Adults with Developmental Disabilities at the Arc SF! Email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. We are flexible with commitments.
We started a class on Thursdays 2-3pm that is ongoing, so this would be a great time to start!
