Exchanging expertise in Beijing

GLENORCHY resident and principal of the Jian School of Tai Chi and Qigong Bill Pearson joined 87 participants from 11 countries when he travelled to Beijing for the Tai Chi Exchange in June.

An invitation for the event was issued by the Beijing Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, with the event taking place at the Beijing Sports Centre, on the Great Wall and in the beautiful Eden Gardens, located just outside of Beijing.

Tai Chi forms on display included Ba Duan Jin, Wu Qin Xie, Yang Style Tai Chi, Yijin Jing and Liu Zi Jue.

There were performances and demonstrations from Tai Chi Masters – the eldest being 91-years-of-age – and remarkable demonstrations of Rouliqiu, which is similar to a combination of Tai Chi and tennis.
