At a recent event, I was asked if tai chi is suitable for the elderly. While I was reassuring the asker that people at the club I go to include those in their seventies and eighties, it suddenly struck me that I don't think of these friends as "elderly". This is because they do the same training as everyone else and show none of the infirmities of age.

Indeed doing chi kung with one of those guys leading can be very challenging for the younger ones, as he goes on forever, like a chi kung machine!

Tai chi keeps you feeling young - and more importantly it keeps you acting young!

I'm still  surprised to realise that in normal society, these guys would be regarded as "elderly"... I'm hoping to age into becoming every bit as strong as they are!
