Due to the extended Safer At Home initiative, Fitchburg Senior Center offered me the opportunity to make a video of our weekly warm-ups and silk reeling exercises and because the space is small and tight. I’m only doing the stationary portion of the silk reeling exercises.
The video is available at http://factv.fitchburgwi.gov/CablecastPublicSite/show/12329?channel=2 as well as scheduled air times. I hope by the time we get back together in person again, we can add on standing corrections, moving steps , and do the forms together. Until then, please stay safe, protect not just yourself but others through social distancing, earning masks etc until we are sure our healthcare system is ready for us to get the coronavirus. It is not “IF” but “when” we will get the virus.
To all my taijiquan friends:
Since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, taijiquan friends from all over the world have sent us a lot of greetings of concern. Under the leadership of my government, the epidemic in China is now under control and the crisis situation is easing. Today COVID-19 has spread on a global scale, and each of us is just an ordinary member of the global family. Although we are not all able to be fighting the virus in the frontline like medical and hospital staff, we can all contribute to our country’s effort by protecting ourselves.
My friends, following the outbreak in my country, I wish to convey to you China’s valuable experience and the measures taken to prevent the spread of the contagion. You must treat the virus outbreak very seriously and protect yourself well!
1. Stay at home as much as possible
2. Wear a mask when you go out
3. Keep distance between people
4. Avoid crowds
5. Avoid touching things; don’t rub your eyes
6. Be sure to wash when you get home
7. Leave outdoor coats and shoes at the door
8. Avoid bringing the virus into your home
9. The house should be ventilated every day
10. Keep regular hours and eat a balanced diet
Remember to practice Taijiquan every day! Enhance your immunity!
Friends, please protect yourself. I look forward to meeting you again!
Hi friends: a very powerful message Kim Ivy received from Chenjiagou on WeChat, from Cui Bing, CZQs wife, CXX’s daughter-in-law. (WeChat has a translation feature).
Hello! Kim, how’s it going? How are you and your family? The news shows that the number of sick people in the United States has increased a lot. Are you all right? Hope all is well! This virus is too cunning, at present in addition to stay at home, there is no other way to resist, must not go out, do not contact with others. It took us many days at home to get this virus under control. Be sure to take care of your body! You must be careful! Try to avoid going out and practice tai chi every day at home, because China is in the process of treating and fighting viruses. Many health care workers and experts working on the front-line are advocating taijiquan to improve their immunity, enhance heart and lung function, and resist the invasion of viruses while treating the virus with medicine at the same time. Wish you and your family peace!
