Our world needs more loving people like Tasha.
我们的世界需要更多像塔莎这样有爱心的人。

Tasha, both her grandparents passed away this year because of falling.

She approached me about helping seniors with Qigong so they won’t fall so easily.

She organized her Girl Scouts troupe to come and learn the basics of Qigong and they are going to share this knowledge with local seniors centers.

Our world needs more loving people like Tasha.

塔莎,她的外公,外婆因摔倒而于今年过世。

她问我什么气功可以帮助老年人保持平衡,不会让他们那么容易摔倒。

她组织她的童子军团队队友及家长来和我学习气功的基本知识,她们将与当地的老年人中心分享这些知识。

我们的世界需要更多像塔莎这样有爱心的人。

To encourage young children not to be stage fright, in this year’s US Challenge, we especially introduced the “First Timer” division.
We chose five youngest competitors , age from 4 to 6 years old children to start the competition. The whole venue stopped to cheer for the five children. I am very touched by the support from everyone. Thank you all.

为了鼓励孩子不怯场,在我们今年美国精英赛上特别为第一次参加比赛的选手们设置了一个“初赛组”。
我们选了最小的五个孩子,4岁到6岁的初赛选手做为我们整个大会的第一组的开场赛。整个会场都停下来为这五个孩子加油。我很感动大家的支持。感谢大家。

Can she complete the difficulties?

In July this year, we took 11 kids to Texas to participate in the US National Wushu team trials. Other team coach saw little Jocelyn and asked me: Can she complete the difficulty techniques?

In the US Junior Team tryouts where you are competing in your age group. But for the US National Team tryouts there is no age separation between competitors and all are treated equally plus complete difficulty techniques requirements.

Our youngest kid is Jocelyn Gu, she is 10 years old.
When we had just arrived at the venue to warm up, our kids were shocked by the speed, strength and jumping abilities of adult opponents.

I hope she can , I replied.

Facing all these strong opponents, is not just our students are feeling the pressure, our coaches and parents are also going through this pressure test.

From Jocelyn's body language and facial expressions, I feel the pressure and tension she is going through and I have no words to describe.

After her last event is finished and without knowing her result, she begins to show her innocent and lovely smile and play with her teammates.

Jocelyn made it to the 2017 US National Team along with her sister Helen and six other teammates.

她可以完成难度动作吗?

今年7月我们带着11个孩子去德州参加美国国家武术队的选拔赛。别的队伍教练看着我们最小的孩子问我:她可以完成难度动作吗?

美国国家队和美国少青武术队的唯一不同的地方是美国国家队的选拔赛是没有年龄区分的, 儿童到成人都是一样的平等对待还要加上难度动作的要求。

我们最小的孩子是 古馨梅,她今年10岁。
我们刚刚到比赛场地热身的时候,我们的小队员们都被成人对手的速度,力量和弹跳高度给震撼住了。

我希望她可以完成难度动作,我回答着。

面对着强大的对手,不光是学生们面临着考验而我们的教练和家长们也是一样的感受着压力。

从馨梅的肢体语言和面部表情,我感受到她承受着压力和紧张不是我可以用语言表达出来的。

她天真可爱的笑容是在比赛之后,在还不知道比赛成绩之前,放松的和她队友们一起的玩耍。

古馨梅和她的姐姐古馨乐及6个队友被选拔进入2017年美国国家队。
