Kelvin Ho took on the yilu challenge once again and completed 200 yilus on Dec. 24, 2021 as inspired by Sooyeon Zacharias’s 180-yilu record on Dec. 18, 2021. He first attempted the challenge back in 2018, and completed 115 yilus. He started at 3:35 am and finished at 1:05 am. The entire duration was 21.5 hours broadcasted on zoom with 16 hours and 5 mins actually doing yilus. Many people came to visit and cheered. Many thanks for everyone’s support, especially for Sevastianos Maillis from Greece, Jojo Juarsa from Indonesia, and Sooyeon Zacharias from Canada who did yilus along side through zoom. They definitely helped ease this challenge. Sevastianos completed 36 yilus, Jojo completed 71 yilus (his personal best), and Sooyeon did another 100 yilus.

Yangsuo (Guilin) Practical Method is set to debut at the local Elementary School on June 1st, 2021! This is a video of the students rehearsing for the public ceremony on June 1st.

Chen Zhonghua:
When I grew up in China in the 1960s, Wushu (Chinese Martial Arts including Taiji) was an everyday, every person activity, much like hockey for Canada and Baseball for the USA.
Unfortunately that was lost later on. Today, together with many other like-minded martial artists, I endeavor in putting the art back into the lives of people in China, starting with school children.

Some of the Daqingshan Full time students hiked up Yongcuixia on May 30, 2021. This is a 6 km hike on Daqingshan. It is the most difficult hike. It traverses 5 mountains and most of the hike is steep. The narrow paths and steps are mostly overgrown with various vines in the summer and covered with snow in the winter.

This hike shows you the true “nature” of Daqingshan.

This is the Peacock sanctuarary in the Sabo Park in the main tourist area of Daqingshan. It is also the end of the Yongcuixia Hike, returning to the Taiji school.
