The 24-year old twins have been studying Tai Chi for more than a year.

The twins are veteran gymnasts, who were introduced to Tai Chi by one of their coaches as a way to control their movements and breathing.

"I didn't come to Wudang to become an expert in martial arts" said Roar, "I want to learn how to control my breathing, and learn more about Chinese culture."

The Norwegian twins are among a growing number of foreigners from various counties who have dedicated themselves to the mastery of Tai Chi on Wudang Mountain.

The twins say there is a growing interest in learning Tai Chi in Norway, but say there are very few instructors in the country. They hope they'll be able to pass on the skills they've learned on Wudang to others in their home country.
