Nice story, he does get into it. Who knows, he might pick it up, been hard on his body so it clould d him well. Maybe Zlatan Ibrahimovic too, my homie from Malmoe, can pick up up Tai Chi to live well after a life of hard training and performance, and he obviously has some Kungfu talent already, just see his artistic yet efficient high kicking.
"David Beckham, who is AIA’s Global Ambassador, recently had the chance to learn about the art of Tai Chi. Beckham is most well know for his fame on the soccer pitch in his earlier years. Si-fu Julian and Master Tsu teach David Beckham about the benefits of practicing Tai Chi while he was visiting Singapore."

"It's better to be a warrior in a garden than a gardener in a war."
What a good saying for martial art! Maybe Bruce Lee nicked it somewhere but it is very good, very smart. And I like to be in the grand... Wink https://www.facebook.com/JBPClips/photos/a.1062287784149863/1455667581478546/

Tai Chi at the Chinese Spring festival TV show is very much a show of entertainment, and it sure looks good. For me as traditionalist when it comes to Tai Chi, this is bit too much fancy dance and way to stylish, very external, acrobatic, but it's still cool that they show Tai Chi at all, you don't see that on TV here in Sweden. Everybody is watching this show in China, it's really huge. The Chinese Spring Festival is the celebration of the Chinese New Year, there world largest celebration of any kind, this year it is the year of the Tiger.

Hmm, I think I like the Airbender better than Master Ken, although he's endlessly entertaining. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QlfcGYB1BI

This is one of the first times I saw Tai Chi in an entertainment contexts and I do love the Stones.
"In the Rolling Stones music video “Neighbours” we see Tai Chi being featured several times throughout the video. The video is set in an apartment building where it is viewed from the outside looking in the windows. The camera moves from the band playing in one window to the neighbour’s windows and back to the band. In one of the windows, several times we see a man practicing Tai Chi in his apartment. Mick Jagger was inspired to write the song from Keith Richards’ run-ins with his neighbours from his playing the guitar in his New York City apartment. After complaints that he was playing music too loudly, Richards and his girlfriend were evicted from their apartment in 1981. The song was part of the Tattoo You album released in 1981.
As a Tai Chi enthusiast who loves all things Tai Chi, I always get excited when I see Tai Chi Chuan being featured in movies, TV shows, and commercials."
The text is from Best Tai Chi Videos.

"“Lin Fei” is a short film about a Tai Chi master trying to find his way in a new country. Lin Fei is a new immigrant in the city of Rome, Italy. He struggles to find his way in this new city of different language and customs. It seems all he wants to do is to find a quite place to practice his Tai Chi, as he misses the familiarity of his old home and the closeness of the family he left." http://slantedflying.com/lin-fei-short-film/?fbclid=IwAR1qgptk_mGGIyvt4PtJ4Gm4tPmZTKdFFm3H5gY6swtxQ6znAw7S-0wQWzA

Another fun example - the TV show for kids, Jimmy Neutron, with Cindy and Libby. Now Cindy is prating Tai Chi while drinking Purple Flurp energy drink, claiming that Tai Chi relaxes her and Purple Flurp speed her up, creating a perfect balance.

Melanie C doing Tai Chi, is it trendy or what? Who knew it could be fashionable.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nEzfa43VF8

Jump to 2.47 for a fairly short and flowery Tai Chi session.
Still, it's fun to see it being applied in such circumstances.
