Val­ues: Mar­tial arts pop­u­lar now

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - BUSINESS -

In­done­sia’s Ba­gas Deka Kur­tianto, Lin Shuyun’s univer­sity mate, said: “Many entrepreneurs ap­pear to be un­der too much stress. Tai chi can elim­i­nate their bad emo­tions and pres­sure. It can also help them to cul­ti­vate pa­tience and in­ner calm, which should help in com­pany man­age­ment. An even-tem­pered man­ager can win re­spect of em­ploy­ees while a short-tem­pered man­ager would ter­rify staff.”

The bot­tom line is, Chi­nese mar­tial arts are be­com­ing pop­u­lar across the world. The Mei Quan Acade- my of Taiji, a Lon­don-based tai chi club, now has 48 branches from hip­ster cen­ter Cam­den Town to af­flu­ent Chelsea and cen­tral dis­trict Rus­sel Square. It also has a pres­ence in Australia, Ja­pan, the US and Europe.
