KK Funei Taiji Association prepare for Asia-Pacific convention

29th August, 2017

TUARAN: The Kota Kinabalu Funei Taiji Association members have attended a one-day training session at the Cowboy Town Resort here in preparation for the upcoming Asia-Pacific convention in November.

Its president, Dato’ Seri Winston Liaw said the outing at Sabandar near Aman Pesona Resort was at the invitation of the owner Datuk Francis Goh.

“He (Goh) also sponsored our members (55 persons) a heavy breakfast after the morning training session from 6.30am to 8am at the mangrove swamp platform,” said Liaw.

We also visited the beautiful beach with clean white sands located 600m from Aman Pesona, he added.

Goh also donated RM10,000 to the association for the production of their 2017 Asia Pacific Wushu Taiji Book in conjunction with the convention on Nov 17-20 in Kota Kinabalu.

“So far, over 200 international Taiji enthusiasts have registered for the convention.

“We expect 500 practitioners from New Zealand, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Canada and Taiwan to join in our inaugural convention in Malaysia,” said Liaw.

Besides that, Liaw disclosed they have spent RMB70,000 in advertisement to promote the convention in China. “The advertisement is aimed to attract Taiji followers to register in our website as we have created internet voting worldwide.

“We are asking the followers to nominate the names of 40 Taiji experts as we will select 10 of them to be our panel of judges for the convention,” said Liaw. – By Paul Mu
