I’m having fun, as usual, running our Pozitive Kidz are happy kidz six week program. The focus is on building self esteem from a Tai Chi perspective.
The kids love the speedy Tai Chi drill. This is where I stand out in front of about 30-40 students and yell out various posture names and then they have to quickly jump into position.
For example I’ll yell out names such as;
‘Show me Single Whip’.
‘Show me Grasping the Bird’s Tail’.
‘Show me Seven Stars’.
After each command I pause and check their postures and movements and make corrections where necessary. Then I bark out the next command.
The rapid fire commands causes giggles, excitement, interest and enthusiasm from students.
And this is exactly what I aim for in the program – to make sure eveyone has fun while learning new skills.
