Ms. Hisako Uchiumi, an instructor of the Tsukiyosi taijiquan class reported about the event as follows,
The sound of stamping on the floor boomed out in the gym. Young Master Chen ShoKatsu performed Small Frame of Chen Style Taijiquan as the 21st generation of the Chen family. Traditional Taijiquan, passed down for over 400 years unfolded before our eyes gallantly and bravely, sinuously and gracefully. The scene was impressive. It was his second training session for the JSCT. As I did the last session, I nodded time and time again in agreement at his coaching. He trained us for 4 hours with enthusiasm and full force. We were very thankful to have lesson from him, because his devotion to Taijiquan inspired us greatly.
