A Visit to Lanzhou, ChinaOn June 18, 2017 Michel was a guest of Master Wang Zhi Yong's Tai Chi class in Lanzhou, China. He had been invited by Wang Xu in 2016 to meet her Tai Chi instructor Master Wang Zhi Yong and his students and friends.
Wang Zhi Yong, Michel, Wang XuWang Xu (in red) visited my class in 2016 and invited me to meet her teacher, Wang Zhi Yong, and her Tai Chi "friends" (all 50 of them!)
Master Wang Zhi YongMaster Wang is the top rated tai chi instructor in Gansu province and rated number eight in China in tai chi form competition.
Demonstrating Tai chiI demonstrated my Yang Style Tai Chi form for Master Wang and his students. After my demo Master Wang told his students that my form was not a "competition" tai chi form - it was the "original" tai chi.
Form DemonstrationIt was very rare to have a foreigner visit their class and demonstrate Tai Chi. They were very curious and everyone wanted pictures.
Michel and Master Zhao He RangWhile in Lanzhou, China, Master Wang Zhi Yong introduced me to his friend, Zhao He Rang (pictured). Master Zhao is 76 years old and in great shape. I was told that he is very good at Push Hands (Tui shou).
