The Purpose of Martial Arts is to Stop Conflicts - Part 1

Tai Ji Men Following Conscience to Promote Global Sustainability


With frequent occurrence of international conflicts and environmental disasters, the forces of civil organizations that transcend national interests are becoming more and more important. For a long period of time, Dr. Hong, Tao-Tze, Zhang-men-ren (grandmaster) of Tai Ji Men, has been the mentor and good friend of many presidents and world leaders. They correspond with Dr. Hong frequently. Mr. Ban Ki-moon, former Secretary-General of the United Nations, expressed in several of his letters his gratitude to the NGOs led by Dr. Hong for the help and support they offered to the UN.

Former U.S. President Barack Obama stated in his letter to Dr. Hong, “The future we leave to our children and grandchildren will be determined by our willingness to shoulder each other’s burdens, take great risks, and march forward as one people and one nation. With your help, we will build on what we have already achieved and lay a foundation for real and lasting progress.”

Under the guidance of Dr. Hong, the three organizations--Tai Ji Men Qigong Academy; Federation of World Peace and Love (FOWPAL); and Association of World Citizens, NGO in consultative status with ECOSOC and associated with the UN DPI--often form cultural goodwill groups to visit nations across every populated continent, promoting human rights, love, peace, and the movement of An Era of Conscience, which have caused butterfly effects of goodness.
