Thank you to our supporters

We would like to thank all that supported the International Tai Chi Chuan Symposium. We hope that you all enjoyed the symposium and look forward to seeing you at the next one!

A special thank you to our donors and volunteers.  Without them we could not have brought the five world Tai Chi Grandmasters and the program of activities and events to the international community.

On the behalf of the International Tai Chi Chuan Symposium, we thank each and every one of you for your direct support as well as fundraising and ideas.
