To introduce my predestined relationship with Qigong and Health Qigong, I have to start from two different "encounters". I encountered Qigong for the first time in 1964 when I was 16 years old. My father was the general secretary of the General Council of Trade Unions of Japan one of the national labor union federations in Japan. He received a letter of invitation to visit China from All-China Federation of Trade Union. At that time, he was still ill, so I followed my father to China and accompanied him to get rehabilitation in Dalian and at that time, I was only a senior high school student.
I have exercised Health Qigong for over ten years, in which I fully realized the benefits of persistent exercise. I am 78 years old now, but I can still hear and see well, think clearly and have steady steps.
The fast development of Health Qigong in Xishan District started in the lunar New Year of 2006. Gao Jingliang, the chairman of Sports Association for the Aged People firstly saw a Health Qigong show organized by the city and felt it should be a good exercise item for the public, especially for the middle-and-old aged people.
Lv Shirong has always had a passion for sports. She has been learning Health Qigong, including Yi Jin Jing, Wu Qin Xi, Liu Zi Jue and Ba Duan Jin, by herself ever since 2006. Through practicing hard according to the video materials on Health Qigong, and pondering and experiencing during the practice process, she has deepened her understanding of the basic theories and technical essentials of Health Qigong day by day, and has gradually experienced the profound connotation of Health Qigong. At the same time, her movements in the exercises become more and more accurate and standard, too.
