Tai Chi Disco-nnect
"The ZhongZhen" sent this to my YouTube inbox. I'd never seen it before and it's pretty funny.
Martial legend Bruce Frantzis provides a great self-deprecating performance of Tai Chi Chuan and dance.
The cool thing is, Martial movement does make us better dancers.
In the words of "The E-Trade Baby" (commercial) I was "a terrible, terrible dancer; Haunting".
But honestly, once I started Tae Kwon Do at age 20, I got more comfortable with body movement. I'm sure people had to stay the hell out of the way of my elbows, but at least I became a passable dancer.
Of course, much like a fine wine, my dancing just gets better. If I could only get off this bar stool...
