Greetings from Kyoto... thanks for joining. Will you have a control group (no Tai Chi activity) for the Tai Chi study, or will some control be provided by the different frequencies of attendance to the classes?

It might be interesting to record where participants choose to stand in relation to the group leader. I suspect it may be a little like school classes, where the people with least dedication tend to shift towards the back of the class. I stood in this position at a Tai Chi class in Taiwan a few years ago, as I was just a traveller passing by!
