Tai Chi fact: A Tai Chi practitioner in Taiwan would conduct classes in his living room. He would test students by making them stand still and then spontaneously pulling the rug they were standing on out from under them. This made the practitioner chuckle at the irony of his test and he would play with his beard and cock back his head with delight.
