Do great things and not arrogant
Be powerful but not fierce

Two years you trained and disciplined yourself for the two days US Team Tryouts.

This two years is full of ups and downs but you completes the journey with honor.

Seeing your growth is the most rewarding feeling for me and Coach Zhang.

泰而不骄,威而不猛。

两年的艰苦训练就是为了两天美国队的选拔赛。这两年里充满了坎坷,但是你很荣耀的完成了这一旅程。

看到你的成长对我和张教练来说是最有意义的感觉。

If one complete just for winning, as soon as an unsatisfactory results received, is most likely to quit and loose all previous efforts.

Only actual experience with strong perseverance can improve one's skill level.

Many thanks to the friends I met in this competition. I cherish you.

如果比赛只是为了名次和输赢,只要一遇到不如意的结果就会放弃自己以前所有的努力。只有实战经验和坚强的毅力才能提高自己的水平。

感谢与珍惜这次比赛中认识的朋友。

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。
