Join us for the biggest Tai Chi event of the year! Celebrate World Tai Chi & Qigong Day in Boston’s Chinatown with students and teachers from the Bow Sim Mark Tai Chi Arts Association. The BSMTCAA has offered classes in Chinese martial arts in Boston for over 40 years. As one of the few women to reach an advanced level of mastery in kung fu, Grandmaster Bow Sim Mark is a pioneer in the art. Her son Donnie Yen (IP MAN, ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY) is one of Asia’s most celebrated movie stars.
Tai Chi is renowned for its health benefits, especially for older people, and Qigong (chi kung) is recognized as an effective means of stress relief. Learn more about this ancient art, which includes meditation, stretching and strengthening exercises, and martial techniques including empty hand and weapon styles. Whether you’re new to Tai Chi or a long-time practitioner, everyone is welcome to attend this free event.
