The sophomore students are required to take PE classes once a week and they get to choose one sport to play for the entire semester. The sports offered are ping pong, badminton, basketball, soccer, tai chi and aerobic dancing exercises. The classes end up being somewhat divided by gender: only boys choose basketball and soccer and only girls choose tai chi and aerobic dancing exercises. For most of the classes, final grades are determined by the outcome of one game at the end of the semester, but for the tai chi classes, students are graded on the fluidity of their movements and how slow they can move (the longer it takes them to do one routine while still moving, the higher their grade).
