LCSD offers free tai chi lessons at parks


As part of its ongoing effort to promote health through regular exercise, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) invites the public to attend free tai chi lessons at three parks over the next two weekends.

The lessons, offered under the "Eight-form Tai Chi Promotion Scheme" launched by the LCSD and the Hong Kong Wushu Union, will be given from 8am to 9am on June 21, 22, 28 and 29 at the football pitch of Kowloon Park, the grass pitch of Victoria Park and the amphitheatre of Sha Tin Park.

Instructors from the Hong Kong Wushu Union will introduce participants to the simple but beneficial "Eight-form Tai Chi". Each lesson will introduce two of the eight forms.

A spokesman for the LCSD said: "Tai chi has become increasingly popular because of its health benefits for people young and old. You do not need a partner or a special venue to practice tai chi; you can do so on your own any time, in any quiet place with good ventilation."

"Eight-form Tai Chi" includes "Commencing Form"; "Parting Wild Horse's Mane on Both Sides"; "White Crane Flashing Its Wings"; "Brushing Knee on Both Sides"; "Single Whipping"; "Waving Hands Like Clouds"; "Grasping the Bird's Tail"; and "Closing Form".

No advance registration is required. Participants are advised to come to one of the three venues just before 8am.

For enquiries, please call the Hong Kong Wushu Union at 2504 8226.
