Tai Chi In The Movie “Vision Quest”

Every so often when we watch a movie or a TV show and we see a glimpse of tai chi usually in the background of a scene. Once in a while we will actually see Tai Chi being used as a part of the storyline of the movie. In this case, the Tai Chi is being performed by one of the main actors, or someone with who the main actors is associating with.
