A drone has taken a video of thousands of Tai Chi students attempting to set a Guinness World Record for the most number of people performing the art simultaneously, in Jiaozuo, Eastern China, on Sunday. An estimated 50,000 people took to parks and stadiums in 15 locations throughout the region, wearing matching outfits and performing the tranquil Chinese martial art. The event, dubbed, "Enjoy Tai Chi, Enjoy Health" was the initiative of the administration of the town of Wen Xian, near Jiaozuo city. It is expected to be confirmed shortly as a Guinness World Record. Over 30 cities in China and nearly 20 cities around the world also participated in the simultaneous Tai Chi performance.
