    中國氣功團到訪

    ( 本報記者江智慧紐域報道 )

    中國國家體育總局健身氣功管理中心副主任呂實明率領中國健身氣功專家一行八人來到灣區進行文化交流,是中國 官方首度組織代表團來到美西訪問。該代表團希望將中國傳統養身文化介紹給灣區民眾,並將與Ohlone社區 大學合作,培訓氣功教練,在灣區推廣氣功。

      呂實明表示,氣功是中國傳統文化之一,也是適用於今日繁忙社會的養身法。因為氣功不只鍛練身體,而且修 練天地人合一的整體觀,具備「預防」的健康觀念,從日常養生修煉,預防疾病發生。他說,2001年至200 3年,中國氣功協會將多套氣功彙整組織成適合現代人鍛鍊的功法,分別是六字訣、八段錦、易筋經、五禽戲。之 後追蹤發現,長期鍛練氣功,可以幫助中老年人提高平衡力、改善心血管機能。

       少林真功主席徐德正也表示,氣功可以改善睡眠品質,修養人格。功夫雜誌主編簡琪則說,由於地球自然環境改變 ,加上經濟蕭條,人們開始尋求另類療法,越來越多人對健身氣功感興趣。

      昨日氣功專家包括武漢體育學院教授石愛橋、北京體育大學博士楊玉冰等人,在Ohlone社區大學紐域校 區示範適合現代人的氣功功法。民眾可參加免費氣功教學活動,時間地點如下:10月9日晚7時30分在聖荷西 少林功夫館(408-505-8809)、10月10日在三藩市(415-664-3168)。

    Well... this is what I got using Omniglot. Not as funny a Babelfish's, and far more jumbled up. But I think it works:

The delegation hoped that the traditional Chinese culture, Yang Shen introduced to the Bay Area people, and with the Ohlone community University cooperation for the training of coaches qigong, in the Bay Area to promote qigong. Lu Ming is said that qigong is one of China's traditional culture is also applicable to today's busy society, Yang Shen law. Qi Gong is not only because of physical exercise and practice of people-in-one of the world as a whole concept, a 'preventive' health concepts from the day-to-day self-health, disease prevention. He said that in 2001 to 200 3, Qi Gong Association of China will be more than the entire Department of qigong organizations fit into the modern training exercises, which are 6 feet in this respect, Ba Duan Jin, Yi Jinjing, five poultry show. After follow-up found that long-term Qi Gong exercise can help improve the balance force in the elderly, to improve cardiovascular function. Shaolin Gong Zhen Xu is also the Chairman said that qigong can improve sleep quality, personality cultivation. Chien-chi, martial arts magazine editor-in-chief said that due to changes in the Earth's natural environment , Coupled with an economic slump, people have begun to seek alternative therapies, more and more people interested in qigong for health. Qigong experts yesterday, including Wuhan Institute of Physical Education, Professor Stone Love Bridge, Beijing University of Physical Education, Dr. Bing Yang and others, Ohlone Community College in New Haven campus domain model for the modern qigong exercises.

    Omniglot isn't bad at all. Thanks!

    I still like babelfish better. It's so abstract.

    There was a nice color photo in today's local paper, the Argus.

    Well, here's a long overdue ttt

    I haven't been keeping up with this thread obviously. We've done a ton of stuff since 2008 - see here (and that's just the general org, you have to go into the separate Friends section to get the rest).

    I've been spearheading our latest project. Throughout 2010, the Year of the Tiger, the Tiger Claw Foundation will be supporting WildAid’s efforts to protect wild tigers.

    Tiger Claw’s KungFuMagazine.com Championship II and Shark City Nationals are holding a special showcase competition for the WildAid Tiger Champion. For details, click here. Tiger Claw’s KungFuMagazine.com Championship II and Shark City Nationals are June 12, 2010 in San Jose, CA.

    More on Refresh

    I know a few other martial artists that applied for this grant. I'm glad one succeeded.
    Tiger Crane Kung Fu gets Pepsi Refresh Project grant
    Program bringsmartial arts to kids inlow-income families

    * By Jake Finch
    * Ventura County Star
    * Posted February 1, 2011 at 9:07 p.m.

    Kurtis Fujita prides himself for running a martial arts school that balks against the mainstream.

    At Tiger Crane Kung Fu in Simi Valley, the emphasis of Fujita's instruction isn't racking up the cost through endless belt testing, but exposing people to the beauty and athleticism of kung fu.

    But what about the kids who could benefit from martial arts whose families are struggling financially?

    "I thought it would be a really good idea to extend what we do at this school," Fujita said.

    So the Simi Valley resident took to the Internet and applied for a Pepsi Refresh Project grant, which awarded him $5,000 in October to offer scholarships to low-income children wanting to learn martial arts.

    He produced an informational video that can be seen at http://www.refresheverything.com/kungfu. Fujita's grant is the first awarded to a Ventura County program out of 9,100 grants awarded since the project's start.

    "We're kicking off the second year of the project," said Amanda Ehrman, Fujita's grant manager with GOOD, the company Pepsi uses to facilitate its grant program.

    Now in its second year, the Pepsi Refresh Project awards $1.3 million each month to 32 recipients. Grants range from $5,000 to $250,000 and cover health, arts and culture, food and shelter, the planet, neighborhood and education. Anyone or any organization can apply for the grants, which are approved by online voters through the website refresheverything.com.

    "The mission of the Pepsi Refresh Project is to reach out to communities big and small," said Shelley Kiernan, spokeswoman for GOOD.

    "(Fujita) is definitely the crystallization of the intent of the Pepsi Refresh project," Kiernan said.

    The program Fujita proposed will take three children, ages 10 to 12, from qualified low-income families (determined through an application following the federal poverty level formula) and teach them the traditional Chinese lion dance, usually performed on Chinese New Year.

    The lion dance combines kung fu and Chinese folk dance movements. There were no lions in ancient China, and there are several stories about how it originated, but the one that Fujita follows tells of an emperor who dreamed of a lion walking through the forest. His advisers told him the lion was a good omen and represented good fortune. The emperor never had a bad dream again.

    The yearlong program targets older children because the equipment for the lion dance is heavy, Fujita said.

    "In martial arts, it can sometimes be an individual practice, but this will bring together the whole school," Fujita said. "It forces everybody to work together as a cohesive whole."

    An application for the scholarships can be downloaded from http://tigercrane.net. The application is listed under the "media" button. Deadline is Feb. 11.
