Coming together to make this possible.

To finish it off ,at the end of the event, I ask Mai (my other Boss). How was it & being a spectator who has no Tai Chi background told me it wasn’t as interesting as other performance.
This wasn’t a surprise to me as I was expecting it & I told her we are not performers,but this makes me think & question -How should we promote the Practical Method so it will appeal to our audience’s ?
Would be interest to hear my Taiji brother & sister”s view

Best Regards

Kenny Ly (Disciple)
