Tai-Chi, an ancient exercise that’s suitable for men, women and orang-utans attempting to be king of more than just the jungle, is a slow and graceful set of self-defence movements. Said to help with developing a keener sense of concentration and a relaxed body and mind, it still boosts energy levels like a well-placed caffeine drip. Similarly, the karate classes also concentrate on developing self-confidence, with all the discipline that comes with studying Martial Arts. The added bonus of all the self-discipline involved in karate is that it helps to develop some of the characteristics that are so necessary for surviving today’s world; a healthy body and mind, discipline, focus and a healthy dose of respect.
With classes held in the Van der Stel Sports Centre and Stellenbosch by a team of highly-trained instructors boasting a collection of knowledge wealthier than the Rockefeller’s, you can be on your way to becoming lean and mean in no time. Other than looking pretty impressive and making onlookers gawk before backing away slowly, both Tai-Chi and karate are also excellent for releasing stress, anxiety, tension and even anger.
Tai-Chi fact: A Tai-Chi instructor in Brazil went on a TV show to discuss the outcome of a world where there were no sitcoms. Wearing a floral blazer, the Tai-Chi master argued that without sitcoms his students would be more focussed and would not nod off in his class as much.
