“Tai chi” at resorts or cruises etc

Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

“Tai chi” at resorts or cruises etc

Not really a thing is it?

Why not?

Seems like it could be popular.

Just don’t make it too MA oriented or woo woo or only for seniors (although boomers are still the big segment), and you can make it all “health and wellness”/spa treatment ish.

You could have some fashions and props like taiji ball to have the merch

You could do some basic warm ups and stretches and qigong sure, why not, call it Tai Chi and let em wave their arms around a bit, why not?

I think it would be cool to see. Kind of like all the old people in the park.

"Package" it, sell it. Sure, it wouldn't be much serious use from an MA or qigong-for-health pov, but should be about as good as your "spa day" yoga class on vacation. Why not.

For some reason, it doesn't happen, though. No demand? No supply? Both? Not "sexy" enough with yoga-pants and a mat?

Qigong and Yoga has been a thing on cruises quite some time all over Europe and yes, you can find Tai Chi on resorts.

Rick Barrett's Tai Chi Alchemy in Sedona is usually hosted by a resort.

guessing everyone here is too purist and won't chase the buck. but it just seems like someone should be doing this ... yeah yeah we'd probably hate it, and hate on it, but it should be attempted
