The 19th Wushu Tai Chi and Qi Gong Festival
Where: Monash University Sports Stadium, Clayton Campus
When: Sunday 27 August, 2017
In recent years, the Celestial Tai Chi College has become increasingly involved in this exciting day. College members have competed as individuals and in groups.
We have also provided a number of Judges and Floor Crew to help out on the day. Senior Master Chin Min has been both a Judge and a Guest Performer.
It is a day of entertainment, opening with a thrilling performance by members of the Hung Gar Lion Dance Troupe. After the morning competition, there is a lunch break and wonderful demonstrations by Guest Masters/Performers, including a very exciting Chinese drumming performance.
This year, an 'all in' Beijing 24 is planned. Everyone in the stadium is invited to come onto the floor and join in. It is really exciting to do something like this with a large number of people. It generates a great spirit. So brush up your Beijng 24 before you come.
The whole day is an opportunity to see forms that you may not have seen before. Sword, Sabre, Cudgel, Spear, Horse Tail Whisk, Walking Stick and other weapons. It's different every year.
There is a canteen for coffee, snacks and lunch, or you can bring your own. It can be very cold in the stadium, so dress warmly.
So come along and get to know other practitioners of tai chi and qi gong, see what other people in the tai chi world are doing, and support any Celestial Tai Chi colleagues who may be competing. Some details are still being finalized, but information is now available on the WTQA website at www.wtqa.org.au
Entry for audience members is $10. For families $30, and children under 12 are free.
