Thats not a fair statement. Tai chi is a martial art. It may appear to move in a slower manner than other types if martial art but it can indeed be a a healthful practice. In its most advanced practices it incorporates sword fighting. It's not arts and crafts or a book club. It's great for concentration, balance and promote healthy joints. I wasn't looking to burn 600 calories but I at least was hoping that it incorporated movement. I have participated in other tai chi classes that have been physically challenging and enjoyable.
