    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. When is the latest I have to be at the venue in order to join the event?

      As we will have over 500 participants attending, we strongly advise you to come at 9am (Zone B&C Participants) or 9:30am (Zone A Participants) to avoid waiting for long in queues. Please also note that our registration counter will close at 10:15 to ensure that the class will begin on time.

    2. If I forgot to bring my passport to the event, can I still take part?

      No, you will not be counted as a participant as it is the requirement of the Guinness World Records that all participants have to present their passports to the witnesses.

    3. If the weather is bad, will “Most Nationalities in a Tai Chi Class” be postponed to another date?

      No, the event will not be postponed to another date.

    4. Must I wear the event T-shirt to take part in the class? Can I wear my own clothes instead?

      For identification sake, all participants are required to wear our event t-shirt to take part. Our event t-shirt is short sleeved, so you may wish to plan ahead what to wear to go with the event t-shirt depending on the weather forecast. Participants can use the temporary changing rooms set up in the venue if needed.

    5. I know nothing about Tai Chi, will I be disqualified if I can’t follow   the steps during class?

      Don’t worry, our class is designed for beginners.

      You are advised to watch the Youtube video prepared by our Tai Chi coaches to familiarize yourself with the steps during the class.

      The Guinness World Records require that “Every participant… should fully participate in the attempt to the best of his or her ability”, so just try your best!

    6. Would there be a break during the 30-min class? What if I want to pause for a drink or go to the washroom?

      The Guinness World Records states that “An individual may take a short break only to consume drink if necessary, but anyone doing this must re-join the lesson within 1 minute, otherwise that individual will be disqualified from the attempt”.

      So please try to stay in the zone and follow the class as much as you could during the class!
