Hi everyone! My name is 何盈欣 Beverly Ho, and I’m so honored and happy to be on staff with the 唐人街關注組 Chinatown Concern Group! I’ve been involved with the group for around a year now, as well as with 青年長者合作組 Youth for Chinese Seniors and 華埠行動小組Chinatown Action Group. Getting to know CCG has been amazing; their superstar personalities, struggles, values, and victories! I know it’ll be challenging and hard work, but I’m excited to be learning and growing and fighting with Concern Group and CCAP!
Visit Chinatown in the early morning, and you’ll may come across Chinese elders stepping through the graceful and deliberate movements of tai chi in Portsmouth Square or Washington Square Park. But despite its reputation as a popular activity for the elderly, this Chinese martial art is enjoyed by both young and old folks alike.
Originating in traditional Taoist and Confucian philosophies, the internal martial art of tai chi today includes five schools based on variations of a parent style founded in Chen Village in China’s Henan Province in the 17th century.
