75th Hong Kong Academy celebration May 2012

Dear Wu’s Practitioners,
Wu’s Tai Chi Chuan Academy Headquarters was established in 1937 by Grand Master Wu Kung Yi, and it would be its 75th anniversary in year 2012.   The Headquarters’ committee will be organizing an international event in Hong Kong to celebrate this important milestone, and would like to invite all our practitioners at all Wu’s Tai Chi Chuan Academy to join us.
The celebration event will start on May 17 in Hong Kong and end on May 27 in Singapore, the detailed agenda is available from your Academy Chief Instructor or by emailing jocelyn@wustyle.com.  Please review the agenda, plan your travel itinerary accordingly and participate in various celebration activities.   For enrollment, please fill in the enrollment form and follow the instructions to complete the enrollment process.
There are also 3 highlighted activities that require your academy to coordinate and participate:
1)During the Anniversary Dinner on May 20 in Hong Kong, each academy is invited to organize a performance for 10 minutes.  The platform size for the performance is 24’ (W) x 20’ (D).  Please send email to Event@wustylehk.combefore January 15, 2012 to confirm your performance content.
2) In celebrating the 75th Anniversary, the headquarters would like to kick off an international competition, "2nd International Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan Federation Competition 2012" for all the academies.  The objectives of the competition are to improve inter-academy relationship, friendship and to learn from each other.   In 2012, the competition will be held in Singapore.   The Singapore Academy will release details of the competition and enrollment later.
3) The headquarters is pleased to announce that we are the Grading Institute of “Duan” of Wu’s Tai Chi for China Wushu Association.  Many of the Hong Kong academy’s practitioners have successfully obtained various “Duan” certifications this summer.   Please see the “Duanwei” examination requirements in the attachment.
