    Moving on to the park you will see a variety of fascinating daily activities on the go from individuals practicing opera to groups gathered to practice singing or varieties of dancing and even shuttlecock kicking and more. At the end you will be guided to a 1000 year old temple with our Tai Chi master right there waiting for you. Once you arrive, your coach will give you a brief introduction to Tai Chi or Kung Fu to warm up. Spend the rest of your class learning basic postures and moves in a relaxed atmosphere.
