Thousands Gather for Taichi at International Competition




CCTV+  -  Published September 28, 2016

Over 11,000 enthusiasts of Chinese martial art Taijiquan, 
or Taichi, came together on Wednesday to practice the 
ancient martial art in the city of Handan, north China’s 
Hebei Province, as part of the activities held during the 
13th International Taijiquan Competition. 

The Taichi practitioners gathered at the historical and 
cultural site of Guangfu ancient city in Yongnian county, 
which dates back over 2,600 years, to perform the martial 
art, which is often practiced by those of various ages 
for its perceived health benefits. 

The competition itself has attracted about 2,000 
participants from 23 countries and regions, and aims 
to serve as a platform for Taichi practitioners to 
communicate with each other and spread the 
Chinese tradition.

Handan city, known for the origin of the 
Yang and Wu styles of Taichi, held its first 
international Taichi competition in 1991.

MYSTERIES OF THE LIFE FORCE: 
My Apprenticeship with 
a Chi Kung Master

This book is the story of author, Peter Meech's,
first seven years of training with Dr. Chow, a 
chi kung master, formerly from Shanghai, China. 
Meech's originally intended interview with the master 
in Toronto evolves into a journey of profound revelations 
as he becomes a student and delves into the amazing 
world of chi, life force energy, and its many aspects and 
manifestations. Meech's account tells of his reality-
changing discoveries as his master takes him into 
a world where chi is the driving force behind all 
living things. A fascinating book that's very 
difficult to put down.
  
"Sparkles with wit, wisdom, and facts found 
nowhere else. If another book on chi kung is 
more engaging, I haven't read it."

Chen Wei Ming (1881-1958)

Scholar, author, and tai chi teacher, Chen Wei Ming 
came from an educated family in Hubei, China. In 1902 
he passed a mid-level government exam and achieved 
a position in the Qing History Office. Chen became
 a student of the famous master, Sun Lu Tang, studying 
the Chinese internal martial arts of bagua and xingyi. 
Eventually he moved on to study tai chi with Yang Style 
grand master, Yang Cheng Fu. One of only three to 
ever live with Yang while training, Chen studied 
with Yang for eight years and became his chief disciple. 
In 1925 he moved to Shanghai and there established 
the Zhi Ruo (Achieving Softness) Taijiquan Association 
and is credited with bringing Yang Style tai chi to 
southern China. Chen wrote numerous books, including 
some the earliest tai chi books available to the public. 
Though Chen had roughly a dozen disciples, including 
Leung King Yu, Hu Yuen Chou, and Lee Shiu Pak, 
he never had a following as large as those of some of
Yang's other disciples. 

Chen recorded Yang's teachings in 
three books under his own name
and some are still available today:
  
Taijiquan shu (The Art of Taijiquan, 1925)

Taiji jian (Taiji Sword, 1928)
 
Taijiquan da wen (Questions and Answers on Taijiquan, 1929)
