Children at a New York School had the chance to learn some moves from a Tai Chi master visiting from China. Xiao Bing, who comes from Foshan City in China met with students from the Cornwall-on-Hudson Elementary School and the New York Military Academy.
The students were shown various aspects of Tai Chi to get a better understanding of the art. They even got to practice trying to push someone while holding an egg. This was an exercise to teach them not to use too much force, or the egg would be broken!
It is encouraging to see young people learn more about Tai Chi, that it is more than just an exercise for old people in the park. Perhaps one of these students will be inspired Chi and go on to be a Tai Chi expert!
