Simon and Richard took a group of twenty people to Beijing in October to visit Professor Zhang and train with Professor Hu.

We spent a week at the Beijing Sport University working on the 49 Dynamic Meridian Exercise, the first digestive set and the 12 Movement set. We did not spend all our time working however, Sunday was a day for individual touring, with people going to different places of interest around the capital and each evening Professor Hu and his daughter Sissy had planned a different eating experience for us.

We had the opportunity to spend time with Professor Zhang, who will be 90 next year, and pick up more stories and information about his works first hand. Professor Zhang was obviously delighted to be reunited once more with Richard, who has already had his 90th birthday. Two excellent examples of what the internal arts can achieve.

During our trip Professor Zhang awarded Simon his 7th Duan, a rare accomplishment. Sally and Erik were also received as indoor disciples by Professor Zhang.

It was a short trip but we managed to pack a lot in and learn some more of the finer details of Daoyin Yangsheng Gong.
