Call for support: Taiji Forum 2017 – International Meeting

Here you’ll find our call for support for the 2nd Taiji Forum Meeting. If you look for the Taiji Forum 2017 “Yangsheng – Care for Life” please visit the page Taiji Forum 2017.

Dear friends of Taijiquan, Qigong and Wushu,

The Chinese internal (movement) arts are unique in their combination of health, martial and spiritual aspects. In the past decades the spreading of Chinese internal arts throughout the world has visibly increased. Both in China and worldwide new styles, schools and approaches evolved which are now complementing the traditional ways of teaching and training: one shared root developed many juicy leaves.

We believe that it is time to come together and share our experience in a joint meeting of East and West.

Our IdeaInternationalMeetingCompetition

  • to create an international meeting for the celebration of the wealth of the Chinese internal arts with participants from different countries throughout Europe and Asia – Teachers, Practitioners and Amateurs

  • to provide space for workshops with the intention of furthering the international exchange based on our shared principles
  • to organize competitions both in form and push hands in the spirit of respectful contest
