China’s Tai Chi Wows Times Square

China Pictorial (English) - - Express News -

Septem­ber 10, New York, USA: Per­form­ing the tra­di­tional Chi­nese mar­tial arts, a group of Chi­nese kung fu cham­pi­ons wowed vis­i­tors to Times Square.

A wide va­ri­ety of tai chi styles and forms were per­formed dur­ing the demon­stra­tion, in­clud­ing tai chi fan danc­ing, Chen-fam­ily style, and dou­ble and solo tai chi per­for­mances. More than 25 mas­ters seen in the per­for­mance hold in­ter­na­tional and Asian kung fu cham­pi­onship ti­tles. As part of the 2017 Chi­nese Wushu Per­for­mance and Ex­hi­bi­tion in the United States, the per­for­mance was or­ga­nized by the Gen­eral Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Sports of China and In­ter­na­tional Wushu Fed­er­a­tion. Cul­tural ex­change plays a sig­nif­i­cant role in China-u.s. re­la­tions, and kung fu as a sport has been a cru­cial part of it for decades.
