Master Kao's Visit to the USA

YMAA Taijiquan grandmaster, Master Kao, Tao, travelled to the United States this past May 2010 to visit Dr. Yang and the students at the Retreat Center, and to teach seminars in Qigong health and longevity in Boston and Memphis. At 78 years old, Master Kao is surprisingly fit, energetic, and seemingly always the most spirited person in the room. He spent a relaxing week at the Retreat Center, teaching Qigong exercises to the disciples daily.

Master Kao taught the six Qigong healing sounds, discussed Taijiquan principles, and helped the disciples with their Chinese language studies. While at the Retreat Center, Master Kao was interviewed by Craig Atkinson, a New-York based filmmaker who has been diligently documenting the 10-year training program thus far, since 2007. Master Kao was also filmed for an instructional DVD demonstrating Qigong for Longevity, directed by David Silver and planned for release in 2011.

The disciples held a demonstration for Grandmaster Kao, Tao at the Retreat Center on his recent visit there this past May.

We are wrapping up our second year in the 10-year training program. The students have been making leaps and bounds, building a solid training foundation that will help them excel for the following 8 years of practice.
