The workshops, led by Master Chen Peishan and Master Chen Peiju, took place from April 28th to May 3rd, and were divided according to the level of practice of the participants.
The content of the workshops was based on the Sizheng Taijiquan and Yilu Forms, Traditional Sword of the Chen style, Tuishou and fajin movements, with explanation of the teaching and training method for the Instructors.

On April 30th we had a conference, with some lectures by Masters and some members of ISCT, as our meetings are always an important exchange opportunity between all groups.

We also had individual and group exhibitions on May 1st, and in that occasion we commemorated the Grandmasters Chen Lixian and Chen Liqing, two of the greatest Taijiquan Masters of our time and, at the same time, two figures of great importance in the study and development of Taijiquan. For this reason the Festival was entitled:
GRANDMASTERS CHEN LIXIAN AND CHEN LIQING MEMORIAL

So we all met together, united in the practice and in the memory!
