In 1979 I watch the movie Apocalypse Now for the first time. In the end of the movie one of the actors were doing some slow movements, which facinated me a great deal. What it was I didn't find out at that time. There should pass ten years or more, when I saw a program on the TV from China, where there was a group of people making some movements, which looked a lot like the ones from the movie - this was called Tai Chi. I Thought it looked so amazing, so I wanted to practise it! Some time went by. In the winter program of 1998/1999 from the local nightschool AOF, I saw, I could join a class. As I had a lot of spare time at that time, it had to be. I phoned the instructor (Gerner Mülich) and asked a little bit of this and that. He sounded like a nice guy, so I joined the class.
It's now February 2005, six years has passed, and I have to say my amazement haven't weared off, since the first time I saw Tai Chi and later on began to practise it. Very fast it became a way of live, a meditation in a hectic World and at the same time makes the body as well as the mind more agile. Acctually you never finish improving the movements, så it's advancing movement, filled with knowledge - and it's said, it never hurts to learn something new..!
