Tai Chi Chuan at Tempura ISLAND

Hi, I am chikae ella, a SIM officer.

Tai Chi Chuan is a form of traditional martial arts that was born in the everlasting Chinese history. It is characterized by slow and flowing movements, and said to be good for health, longevity, and stress reduction. Today, Tai Chi Chuan has spread worldwide.

It is said that Tai Chi Chuan was created by a mountain hermit in China, but it is only according to legend. Today there has been many schools established, but the mainstream seems to use twenty four main movements among the numerous actions of Tai Chi Chuan.

When we are building Tempura, we decided in advance that a space for Tai Chi Chuan should be included. Because the research results had said that Tai Chi Chuan was popular among the range of SIMs in the second life.

We concentrated our thoughts to create a place for Tai Chi Chuan being a bit different from those of other SIMs.
Here also it was necessary to present a space for love and heal, that is the theme of Tempura.

The grandest location that provides full view of the SIM.
The round table with a pattern of Mandala (concentric diagram having spiritual and ritual significance in both Buddhism and Hinduism) without feeling of oppression.
The fascinating cardinal autumn forest spreading in front of you.
The feeling of tension of being watched by others from the corridor or the top of castle.

You will experience gratification of self-absorption, just like dancing on a stage.
While dancing slowly with the tide, red flowers are welling up in a swirl from below.

Then, exuberant chat starts among the guests gathered from all over the world.
“Hi. How are you?”
“It is morning here. Is this the bedtime for you?”
“You are beautiful”
“Thank you”

And all that. You can have your pick of the lot, the elder, the youth, male, or female. There are enthusiastic conversations with sputtering out.

Tempura is accessed by peoples from more than fifty countries. The Tai Chi Chuan at Tempura is now becoming one of the watering holes that gather worldwide peoples. Information exchange and competition of the latest fashion. Above all, it will provide a place where you can be away from keyboard at ease.

There are some couples they become more intimate while meeting and talking here.

To peoples from the entire world: Please come to see the Tai Chi Chuan at Tempura. We will be waiting for you.
