Born in 1949: Spreading Tai Chi from a village
"Tai Chi is welcomed by people from all around the world as a scientific way of body-building," said Chen Zhenglei. He's one of China's leading contemporary Tai Chi masters, and was born in the same year that the People's Republic of China was founded. Tai Chi is "not just our family treasure, but also represents our national traditional culture," he said. "I hope more and more people can get involved and benefit."
