As the Year of the Goat approaches and it’s time for reflection on the past few months, it is clear that the year soon to be ended has been one of the most eventful periods in the life of the Taoist Tai Chi Society of Hungary. In addition to the anniversary celebrations, a series of 20 open-air demos was organized nationwide. The demos were held in various cities from late March to mid-December.
The aim was to find locations for the 20th anniversary public demos where people had the opportunity to join in and try out the Taoist Tai Chi® arts. The members and instructors of the Society talked to those interested, answered their questions about Fung Loy Kok Taoist Tai Chi™, shared their own experience, and distributed leaflets in which new beginner’s groups were also promoted.
Events to come were announced on the Society’s website, and short accounts as well as photos of past demos were shared with the public. Participants were largest in number at the demonstration held during our summer workshop: more than 200 enthusiastic people were present.
Beginners regularly tell that they first encountered the Taoist Tai Chi® arts at one of the public demos. This positive feedback encourages us to continue with the tradition of open air events, so that Tai Chi will be made available to as many as possible.
