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.

I went to the park to train. It’s the end of the school year so schools have picnics. 5 girls approached me and wanted to learn…so I taught them the first posture. Two school officials approached me and inquired…I gave them my background. It’s a private school and the asked me to teach Taiji next school year. I continued to practice…between yilus a group of 15 kids approached me and wanted to learn….public training is good recruitment of students…

During this time of the pandemic, I had a very valuable opportunity to attend Shifu Chen Zhonghua’s online class. 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 yilu and push hands. All this time I thought that I understood and could do yilu well, but what I understood was wrong. Read more
