MediBall or Rouliqiu, as it is called in Chinese, combines the traditional racket sports’ treatment with the internal power of Tai Chi Chuan. The racket consists of a rubber surface with a sand-filled ball attached. The point of the movements made during the game is to prevent the ball from hitting the racket, but to follow the motion of the racket by using the power of Tai Chi to create circular movements. When the ball reaches the racket, this circular motion does not only accelerate the ball, but it sticks to the racket while the movements are made. The game can be played under any conditions: it is not bound to time, place, or weather; it can be played outdoors, in a small room or anywhere. You follow the movement of the ball by swinging the racket; you do not stir up the air, so the wind force does not affect the path of the racket or the ball.
Like any martial art, Tai Chi places a strong emphasis on bringing the internal energies to surface without using external forces. It is soft and gentle. Each movement should be done smoothly, slowly and steadily. At the end of the exercise, although you may be sweating profoundly, there are no signs of wheezing or heavy breathing. You do not feel tired, but pleasantly relaxed. This is why Tai Chi is considered to be the ideal body-fitness exercise, which is recommended for everyone regardless of age, gender, or physique, but especially for the ones with poor health and the ones suffering from chronic diseases. However, it is important to emphasize that though Tai Chi seems easy, there is hard work behind the soft movements. People often compare it to "steel wrapped into cotton wool”.
