It’s over 14 years since Taiji Teachers, Song Arun, Tran Lay Duke, Christian Bernapel and Dr. Yang Jwing Ming sat around a table after a training course and discussed the possibilities of uniting Taijiquan Practitioners from the Rhenan Basin (Switzerland , Germany and France ). The end product is a very lively and enjoyable 2 day annual travelling Taiji feast! That is, Tai Chi Rhenan moves from country to country around the Rhenan Basin and this year was held in the picturesque valley of Lapoutrie Eastern France .

Gilles Petitdemange and Song Arunhanks for undertaking the organising, arranging and co-ordinating of all the events, people and venues throughout the village for the event deserve special thanks.

Attended by approximately 200 participants, everyone enjoyed Tai Chi and Qigong tuition in temperatures that ranged between 24 and 27 degrees during the 23rd and 24th October 2004!

Attending Teachers were: A.BROUILLAUD, ARMEL MALFILATRE & VALERIE THION, BOB LOWEY, CORNELIA GRUBER, D.MILLECAMPS, DANY SARGIS, F.PLEWNIAK, FRANCOIS SCHOSSELER, FRANCOIS CHENG, HASENORHL H, JESSE RAYNAL, LAC LE MY, M.KONARKOWSKI, MICHEL BOSSERT, S.CHAMBON, SONG ARUN THIERRY ALIBERT and TRAN LAY DUKE.

Next year, the “Feast” moves to La Choix de Font in Switzerland and will be hosted by Cornelia Gruber.
