The 5th "The Tao of Tai Chi Forum – Intellectual vs. Martial"
Taichi is a sport that utilizes the body language to manifest the balance of Yin and Yang. It is a sport created in accordance with the laws of nature and the human biological and psychological needs.
With hundreds years of rich history, Taichi moves are smooth like flowing water with natural and relaxed postures. Taichi power is balanced with softness and solidness which enable it to be an exercise suitable for the whole body. Taichi is a popular sport yet it is also an intangible heritage that boosts our cultural self-confidence with its iconic Chinese cultural values.
Chen Zhenglei Taichi Annual Symposium follows the sixty-keyword theme of his lineage system – “De (德 Ethics), Cheng (诚 Honesty), Gong (公 Fairness), Xuan (宣 Openness), Ren (仁 Benevolence) …. After the last five well noted successful symposiums, the highly expected 6th Symposium themed “Yi (义 Righteousness) will be held in the fall of 2019 at Cha Ya Mountain, a scenic area of Zhumadian, Henan Province!
“Benevolence is about people and righteousness is how people get along”. ——《Book of Rites - Moderation》
“Righteousness helps to cultivate our prestige. ”——《Shuo Wen Jie Zi》
"Righteousness is what bounds people together and Tao is the way to the world." Taichi practitioners undertake the mission to promote righteousness, educate people and maintain health through the practice of martial arts. Bearing the responsibility to promote the Tao of Chinese martial arts and Taichi, there is a group of Taichi practitioners who hold their faith and responsibilities with the purpose to better their home and country. They have actively participated in the great endeavor to promote Taichi. For the past few decades, they have brought Taichi to people at every corner of the world.
Chinese culture advocates the spirit that the world is one big family and we all thrive for the betterment of the mankind. The health of the people needs Taichi, the inheritance of excellent culture requires Taichi. Taichi will also contribute to enhance exchange of international cultures. “Rid the old and promote the new. Advance with the times. Adhere to the law of nature and stay in harmony with nature.” This is the core spirit and survival philosophy of Chinese civilization. It will be brought to the world and shine evermore brilliantly through the unremitting efforts of these Taichi practitioners!
