Surprise, surprise, Tai Chi helps the elderly

So what is news? Does it really need scientific research to prove the blindingly obvious, that practising Tai Chi helps maintain balance, strengthen muscles, helps prevent falls, and lessens injuries if someone does fall… well, well, well, who would have thought it?!

Nick Collins, the science correspondent of the Daily Telegraph writes about researchers in France who have discovered this amazing and unexpected result…  Good heavens, and I thought classes were bursting at the seams with people doing Tai Chi because they thought it might help them learn to speak Klingon! yIDoghQo'buy' ngop!*

* Klingon phrases meaning:

yIDoghQo’ – don’t be silly

buy’ ngop – that’s great news!
