Tai chi prevents falling

Another study has confirmed the great benefits of tai chi in preventing falls. Older adults with a history of falling were assigned to a tai chi group (one hour class weekly for six months) or a lower extremity training (LET) class (stretching, muscle strengthening and balance training). At the end of the study, the tai chi participants were significantly less likely to have fallen (reaching 50% less after a year). http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/jgs.13952/abstract
