    Anyone practice Tai Chi Ch'an?

    A coworker of mine almost has me convinced to go and learn Tai Chi at the school he goes to.

    Anyone else do Tai Chi or similar? What do you think of it?

    I practiced Tai Chi several years ago. It's better exercise than you think. It's also good for relaxing your mind and getting rid of stress.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    I didn't do her, but I did her sister.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Kinda what I'm looking for.

    Bike riding is also the only exercise I really get regularly, so something else, especially something like Tai Chi would probably work well for that whole cross training thing.

    Kung fu forms are very relaxing, no matter which style it is. They're fun to do drunk, as well.

    It's good. I did a little of it while taking Kung Fu and it's kind of like Kung Fu in slow motion.
