Throughout the year Shen Long Taiji hosts several special events. Below are the links to the photos from some of the most recent events:


2024 International Conference in Taiwan

In March 2024, five of us, Sifu Kevin, David, Pam, Ruth, and Sharry, traveled to Taiwan to take part in the International Conference. We spent 6 days with lots of hands on instruction of our Shen Long Taiji Quan. It was wonderful to be together again with 92 of our brothers and sisters from all over the world.

Holiday Party 2023

Students in Northfield gathered before the winter break to celebrate the holidays. It was a wonderful to end the fall session and to end 2023.

Open Practice at the Beach-Summer 2023

The bluff overlooking Glencoe Beach is an ideal setting to play Taiji. On August 5 we started off the summer gatherings with a potluck breakfast after our practice.

Richard’s visit to Chicago

In June, Richard Marr made a three-day visit to Chicago, mixing business with Taiji. It was great to have him here for lots of Taiji both in and out of class.

In spring 2023, the Kenosha and Northfield schools hosted Vincent Chia of Singapore Shen Long Taiji Quan, for a wonderful week of discussion and classes. First stop, the Botanic Gardens, followed by a busy week of classes in Northfield, then Kenosha, then back to Northfield.
