By listening, seeing and following the instructions given in the class I began to understand the principles of the Taiji practical method and apply them to and push hands.

This time the 7th practical method workshop in Indonesia was held in Bali. Master Chen Zhonghua together with a team of trainers i.e: Wang Kai, Ling Ziming, Ling Zili, Song Zhenhua and participants from China arrived in Bali on November 19, 2019 at midnight. James Strider arrived at the 21st of November. The next day the lesson has begun and is followed by students who arrive earlier. This workshop was very special because the day before the workshop which was November 22, 2019 was also held for the first time the push hands practical method match for the Southeast Asia and Oceania region.
On 27, 28 and 29 September 2019, I was honored to teach the chen style taijiquan practical method to a delegations of a multi-national company based in Russia who were holding their annual meeting on the island of Bali, Indonesia. The delegation numbered more than 100 people but there were only about 20 people who participated in taijiquan practice. Taijiquan training in the morning was only a choice of sports activities offered by the event organizer for the delegation members during stay in the hotel.
The training started at 7 in the morning and finished around 8:30 in the morning. I started the exercises with body stretching, practical method , footworks and the 4 initial steps or forms in . Most participants who took part in the training were from China, southeast asian countries, Russia and Africa. They really liked the practical method of master Chen Zhonghua. I hope they will go further to find and come to the nearest Taijiquan practical method Club in their respective countries or come directly to Daqingshan to practice there. I am very grateful to Master Chen Zhonghua for all his kindness in showing me the way, teaching and instruction in the Chen Style Taijiquan Practical Method.
