Strong feelings do not necessarily make a strong character. The strength of a man is to be measured by the power of the feelings he subdues not by the power of those which subdue him.
MWNN says this is badly shot and edited, but there's a video of the Summer 2009 Ta Chi Retreat on youtube. It has a clip showing me twirling the staff widdershins instead of clockwise. (I'm the little 'un on the left in the second row the the Staff warm-up exercises, @ about 5mins.)
I agree that some of the Tai Chi shots should have been longer and without all the sea-sick-making panning, but it shows the beauty of the setting and the range of ages and abilities of the participants. I'm re-thinking attending the new weekend next March. It'll be cold.
