Firstly, I want to say “Hello” to all my JinLi family. How are you going? I’ve been challenged and I know I’ve had it easy compared to most in Australia.

Taijiquan biomechanics? I’m sure the mere mention of those words would draw blank stares from most people, especially tai chi practitioners. We’ve all had the experience in life when we’re out shopping, where we know in our minds what we want, but we have no idea what the thing we want is called, making it almost impossible to find.

It didn’t matter whether the competition needed volunteers, supporters, competitors or judges, JinLi stepped up to make sure everyone had a great time celebrating all that is wushu. The JinLi Team got a chance to meet up with friends they made last year, learn about new styles and weapons, but best of all, competitors got to put on their “silks” and “have a go” on the competition floor. read more
