  The 3rd sports meeting of Dongguan's Machong Township was held on 15th July. More than 200 Taiji (aka Tai Chi in the west) Fist enthusiasts performed the 24 Taiji Fist moves at the meeting, which won cheers from spectators.

  Since March, several sports instructors in Machong visited 14 surrounding villages in order to instruct villagers in the art of Taiji for free. Within a short four month period, the number of Taiji enthusiasts in Machang has expanded from a dozen to over 500. "After supper, people practice Taiji for hours in the village's cultural square. People generally won't leave until after 10pm," said one Taiji Association enthusiast. 

  Sources in Machong have revealed that Taiji Fist will be introduced and promoted in Machong middle and primary schools in the near future.
