|Tai Chi Demonstration to go on at Antioch Park without Chinese Master|
A free Tai Chi demonstration will go on Thursday as scheduled without the Chinese master originally slated to make the presentation.
Gary Huff and Craig Terry from Three Dragons Way School of Chinese Boxing, Inc. will now give the demonstration, which will take place from 8 to 9 am on Thursday, October 30 on the patio of Building A at Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam. The demonstration is open to the public and will take place on the patio of Building A.
Master Chen Zhenglei of China's Henan province was originally scheduled to give the demonstration, but has been called back to China for an emergency. Master Chen will return to Kansas City later in the week and will resume the rest of his schedule for his current tour of nine American cities, but because of an already full schedule, no other appearance at Antioch Park or in conjunction with the Johnson County Park and Recreation District's Overland Park 50 Plus program is planned.
Tai chi consists of a series of slow smooth circular movements. Practiced alone or in groups, participants move through a series of movements which constitute a "form." Practice of this movement art is believed to promote balance, body awareness, deep breathing, and a sense of well being.
