The participants enjoyed the opportunity to learn and practice the various techniques through discussion and physical demonstration. They not only learned Internal Martial Arts in a scientific way, but also have learned its practical application such as self-defense in real life.

The workshop is intended as a complement to the CI’s ongoing free Tai Chi session every Saturday morning at New Market Square in the city center. Both the Martial Arts Workshop and the Tai Chi session will become more regular in the future for the wellbeing of the locals.
