THE FORGOTTEN (FEMALE) PIONEERS OF TAI CHI IN THE WEST

From Charles Russo’s Fightland Blog… 

“Clinical studies in recent years have linked practicing tai chi to a wide range of health benefits, including the reduction of heart disease, curbing stress and improving the overall physical well-being of seniors. Last year, the British Journal of Sports Medicine suggested that the beneficial attributes of practicing tai chi were substantial enough that it should possibly even be “prescribed” by doctors to address a variety of conditions, including diabetes and arthritis.”

A great and interesting story that adds a lot of context to the history of Chinese martial arts in the U.S., the huge contribution of two woman, and interesting fact that you have never heard of either of them – even though they shattered many glass ceilings in their time.
