Tai Chi Master Jou Tsung Hwa originally founded this event and named it the “Zhang San Feng Festival,” after the legendary ancient founder of taijiquan, Grandmaster Zhang San Feng. The purpose is to unite all those interested in: taijiquan, qigong, and Taoist internal arts in a spirit of sharing. The Zhang San Feng Festival was renamed “Tai Chi Gala” to make the name easier to understand and remember.
