    China to build first Tai Chi theme park

    As the article says, a theme park aimed at promoting Tai Chi is to be built in the Wudang Mountains, Hubei province. Not sure how this fits with it being a world heritage site though.

    Well, that article didn't clear anything up for me. Is it a park to go and practice Tai Chi, or is it going to have rides and stuff for people to play on?

    I would be into going to a place like that if it was some kind of Tai Chi retreat. That would be cool. But I wouldn't take my kids, it would be counter-productive to the calm environment!! :)

    I have seen a lot of stuff lately where people in China are trying to promote more Tai Chi in the world. I believe it was Jet Li in an article where he is going to create a Tai Chi style that he thinks incorperates the best elements of Tai Chi in a simplified form for people to learn! I understand where he is coming from, and would like to learn such form. But his main thing is that for example, people don't stick around long enough to lear the form I do (Chen Pan Ling 99) because it takes way to long for their patients.

    Even though they don't understand that you don't have to know the whole form in order to be "doing Tai Chi".

    Is it dreaming to think that the centerpiece of Tai Chi Land will be a daily lei tai tournament?

    I couldn't help but think of this video...this is what it might look like.

    I'm guessing this is going to be marketed as a relaxing retreat for corporate types.

    I hope the line for the Zhan Zhuang simulator isn't going to be as bad as for the push-hand 360 spin cycle.

    My kid: Sweet, I love riding horses.
    Me: there are no horses.
    My kid: Then how are we going to part their mane?
    Me thinking: (I knew this was going to happen)
