This year’s topic is the 42 Form, aka the competition form. Designed in 1989 by Professor Men Hui Feng and Li De Yin. It combines Chen, Yang, Wu and Sun tai chi styles. It emphasizes the fundamentals and incorporates modern science to provide a psychologically sound exercise that is balanced and health oriented.
Join the world wide celebration of good health and global healing. This is a worldwide event involving over 80 countries and all 50 states. The purpose of this day is to introduce the public to the health benefits of tai chi and traditional Chinese medicine. It is also a chance for tai chi students to come together and share different aspects of tai chi.

He has studied several styles of tai chi, pushing hands and several weapons over the past 40 years.
