    Guinness World Record Tai Chi Robots

    More than a thousand dancing robots break world record
    By Daniel Uria | Aug. 18, 2017 at 12:03 PM


    About 1,069 dancing robots completed a synchronized dancing routine to claim a Guinness World Record for "Most robots dancing simultaneously."Screen capture/Guinness World Record/YouTube

    Aug. 18 (UPI) -- More than a thousand robots performed a choreographed dance routine together to set a world record in China.

    The 1,069 "Dobi" robots, produced by WL Intelligent Technology Co. Ltd, completed the synchronized performance in Guangzhou, Guangdong, to claim the Guinness World Record for "Most robots dancing simultaneously."

    A few of the robots accidentally toppled over during the performance and were deducted from the final total.

    All of the robots were programmed via a singular group control system and are able to talk, do Tai Chi and perform several other actions in addition to dancing.

    WL Intelligent Technology topped the record of 1,007 dancing robots, previously held by fellow Chinese company Ever Win Company & Ltd.

    They do look cute though. With all the protests in the news it freaks me out to think what it will be like in 40 years when every one has battle drones.

    Unbelievable moment Chinese martial artist pulls a one-ton van with a string tied round his waist while walking ON HIS HANDS

    This is the incredible moment a Chinese man performed a stunt as he pulled a van with a string tied around waist.

    The footage, captured on September 8, shows the man, believed to be a martial artist, walking on his hands while dragging a white minivan in south-west China.

    The man walked on his hands for about 10 metres (32.8 feet) without falling.


    A Chinese martial artist performed an impressive handstand as he made a vehicle move

    The video flip is believed to be taken in Kunming, Yunnan Province.
    A man in black can be seen tying a string around his waist before making a handstand in front of a white minivan.
    The white van's doors are open, suggesting no passengers were inside the vehicle.


    He walked upside down for about 30 feet with a string connecting his waist and the van


    There were no passengers or drivers steering inside the van as the stunt was carried out

    The van is said to weight about 1,000 kilogram (1.1 ton).
    Soon the martial artist started to pull the minivan and walked forward.
    The minivan moved and followed behind, demonstrating the man's strength to pull a heavy vehicle.

    Cai Mingyong

    Chinese tai chi master sets record for bearing heaviest load while suspended
    by Chi Dehua Apr 17, 2018 13:28 MARTIAL ARTS WUHAN



    A Chinese tai chi master has set a world record for balancing the heaviest load on a human abdomen while hanging in the air.

    Cai Mingyong, 42, successfully held a 90 kg weight on his stomach for ten seconds while lying across two raised pillars, Sohu reports.

    "It is the first world record for a person carrying such a heavy load with his stomach," stated Zuzana Pavlonova, the certification officer from the London-based World Record Certification Agency (WRCA), who witnessed Cai's challenge in Wuhan, the capital city of Hubei Province.

    Cai, who has suffered from poor health since childhood, has been practicing tai chi for more than 20 years and created his own 'Tianxing Lie Gong' style, which means 'carrying weight on the abdomen while suspending one's body in the air'.

    Cai said that "China has a history of more than 5,000 years and a rich culture. I have achieved something by digging only a little from it...We should really feel confident and proud of our culture," according to Caidian News, a local media outlet.

    Tai chi, also known as shadow boxing, is traditionally an internal Chinese martial art featuring relatively slow movements, but is practiced more for its health benefits these days.

    The WRCA is not affiliated with Guinness World Records in any way.

    Chi Dehua has been a staff editor at GBTIMES since 2013. She covers foreign affairs, business and culture.

    8,212 person TKD demo

    Thousands take part in largest Taekwondo display in South Korea to promote peace
    By Rachel Swatman Published 07 June 2018



    A breathtaking martial arts display took place recently at the National Assembly Grounds in Seoul, South Korea, in the run up to the first inter-Korean summit.

    The event broke the Guinness World Records title for the Largest Taekwondo display, with a staggering 8,212 people taking part.



    Before taking on the official attempt in front of Guinness World Records adjudicator Raymond Marshall and hundreds of stewards, the group had two practice performances to perfect the routine.

    The expertly-choreographed demonstration lasted for 10 minutes, with all the participants wearing traditional Taekwondo attire.



    The event was organised by The National Assembly Taekwondo Federation, Brand & Company Co. Ltd. and Christian Television System Co LTD.

    Taekwondo originated in Korea and the organisations wished to promote the sport and encourage peace between the neighbouring nations.

    Both young and old attended the event. Their enjoyment and determination was evident, as only around 150 people out of the thousands participating were disqualified for not taking part in the display correctly within the record guidelines.


    Lee Sang-min, the CEO of Brand & Company, commented: "Although the success of the Guinness World Records title has its own significance, Taekwondo – which was born in the divided country – gathered people in one place to realise that one spirit has contributed in birthing a new global, cultural sport."

    "Taekwondo has played an important role in bringing South and North Korea together, with the symbol of peace for the future."


    The attempt was broadcast on Korean news channel YTM and will appear in an upcoming documentary about Taekwondo in Korea.

    This new record is more than seven times higher than the previous one, which was achieved by J R International Taekwondo Academy & Indian Martial Arts Academy Team in a spectacular display by 1,152 participants, back in 2016.

      6月30日,由佛山真武馆、佛山市童星教育集团联合举办的“世界上最多幼儿集体演练传统蔡李佛拳法”世 界纪录挑战活动在南风古灶举行。现场1191名幼儿齐打蔡李佛拳,得到世界纪录协会的官方认证,成功创造世 界纪录。

      当日10时,尽管天气非常炎热,孩子们依然精神抖擞。1191名幼儿在老师的带领下,出拳踢腿,一招一 式打得有板有眼,精气神十足。据了解,孩子们打的是由佛山真武馆与佛山市童星教育集团编排的“蔡李佛少儿武 术操”。该套武术操既考虑少儿学习演练的需要,又充分保留了蔡李佛拳的特色手法和步型。

      在1191名幼儿打完“蔡李佛少儿武术操”后,世界纪录协会相关负责人现场宣布“世界上最多幼儿集体演 练传统蔡李佛拳法”世界纪录挑战成功,并向主办方颁发世界纪录证书。

    Fastest Tennis Ball Caught at 248 KPH

    OCTOBER 9 2018 - 12:55PM
    Armidale's Anthony Kelly breaks another Guinness World Record


    MARTIAL ARTS MASTER: Perpetual Guinness World Record holder Anthony Kelly has broken yet another world record for fastest tennis ball caught.

    STARING down the barrel of a custom-made air gun, Anthony Kelly is a long-time member of one of the world’s most exclusive clubs.

    With 50 Guinness World Records under his belt, Kelly just earned the title of World’s Fastest Tennis Ball Caught at 248 kilometres per hour.

    Recently, he was best man at the wedding of his good mate Morris Zavatta – one of the greatest tightrope walkers in the world.

    ​“I’ve been practicing the fastest tennis ball for two years, it’s extremely hard to do,” Kelly said.

    “The speed of the balls travelling from the air cannon I had to get made in America myself is 0.08 seconds, we’re talking a thousand of a second.

    “I have to really train my body to overcome the pain the balls inflict on my body.”

    Kelly just learned he’ll be on the inside cover of the Guinness World Book of Records in 2019.

    The 54-year-old shows no signs of slowing down. He lives on a diet of meat and potatoes, and reckons he’s never eaten a piece of fruit or a vegetable in his life.

    “One of my techniques is opening and closing my hand in five seconds – I have a personal best of 85,” he said.

    “That keeps my body super active, I think we can do anything if we set our mind to develop our bodies.”

    Kelly has appeared on television shows worldwide; he’s been studied by scientists in Plymouth, England; and met the crew of Mythbusters.

    “I have a few other records pushing on the limits of human endurance,” he said,

    “I know I won’t do it forever but I certainly have two or three other records that will make people stand up and have a look at what people can achieve.”

    Each record he plans to break takes significant physical and mental preparation.

    “My motto is ‘physically, mentally, faster, stronger,’” he said in 2016.

    “I know I’m only going to live once and so that’s why I do it, I want to try to get the most out of myself.

    ”I’ve got some really wild ideas of what I want to do, pushing human boundaries.”

    Samuel Michaud - Tai Chi for 36 hours


    Watch: Montrealer breaks world record for longest tai chi practice

    Doing anything for 36 consecutive hours is a lot, but that's especially the case with tai chi.

    MONTREAL GAZETTE Updated: September 23, 2019

    It started, as so many things do, with a Google search.

    Samuel Michaud said he was doing “stupid research on the Internet” in his free time when he found the world record for longest tai chi practice.

    Sheila Dickinson lasted 28 hours and 59 minutes in 2017.

    The idea of trying for the record stuck in his head, and eventually he’d told enough people in his life that he couldn’t not do it.

    All of which explains what the tai chi educator and long-time practitioner was trying to do in Montreal’s Victoria Square on Sept. 19 and 20: 36 hours of tai chi.


    Teacher Samuel Michaud practices Tai Chi in Victoria Square on Friday September 20, 2019, during his attempt to set a Guinness World Record. JOHN MAHONEY / MONTREAL GAZETTE

    He was also collecting donations for the Make-A-Wish foundation.

    “I like the idea of doing something a little bit crazy,” he said as he closed in on that target, “and I wanted to see how I would react doing 36 hours of tai chi.”

    He added: “I think that it’s great that in downtown Montreal, where there’s a lot of traffic, a lot of noise, for 36 hours — a day and a half — someone is doing slow movements in tune with nature.”
