Tai Ji Men’s Performance at the Sydney Opera House Artistically Beautiful and Powerfully Peaceful Martial Arts


On October 2, during the 2000 Olympic Games, Tai Ji Men gave an unprecedented performance titled "An Evening of Tai Ji Men Ancient Culture" as the last performance of the night at the Opera House.

On the same evening, the Hon. Gordon Samuels AC, governor of the State of New South Wales, and Dr. Hong, Tao-Tze jointly hosted the ceremony of ringing the Bell of World Peace and Love to deliver their best wishes for world peace. The governor said, “Tai Ji Men understands this and understands that our conduct must mirror our words, must match our sentiments. Otherwise, however noble the words may be, the result will be quite inadequate. If we desire peace, we must act peace. If we wish for harmony, we must learn how to live in harmony with one another. This is not merely something, which is desirable, as we see from the present states of the world. It is something quite essential. We must learn how to live in peace and examples before you today point us in the direction in which we should travel."

Mr. Ching-Kuo Wu, member of the International Olympic Committee, highly praised Tai Ji Men’s contribution and stated that through promoting martial arts, fitness, and wellness, Tai Ji Men incorporated the essence of culture in the activities it promoted, allowing everyone in the world to accept it and gradually participate in it.
