International Achievement for Ji Hong Tai Chi Richmond Hill
The 6th International Taijiquan Exchange Competition was held on August 20, 2011 in Jiaozuo City, Henan Province, China, the birthplace of Taijiquan. Students from Ji Hong Tai Chi College and its branch locations have participated in every one of this bi-annual event, led by Master Luo Hong Yuan, consistently achieving good results.
This year’s competition we have Master Liang Bao Sen, chief instructor from Richmond Hill branch acting as coach for senior student May Rahnema, who competed in Chen Style Tai Chi form, Tai Chi Sword form and Women’s 48 kg Push hands events, winning Gold, Silver and Bronze medals respectively, an astounding result.
This is the first time that May Rahnema has represented Canada in an international event of this stature, and she has made us proud with such outstanding performances. For Ji Hong Tai Chi students, good results are not a coincidence. Training out of the Richmond Hill branch since 2004, the school has uniquely offered Tai Chi instruction that is modern and scientific, yet based on traditional theories and principles. Experienced and dedicated instructors, combined with hard work from students often reap benefits beyond expectations.
