Taiwan’s Meimen Kungfu Art Troupe performs at SF Public Library on July 22

Taiwan’s Meimen Kungfu Art Troupe has high aspirations. They don’t merely wish to entertain with stellar martial arts, acrobatic, sword play, music, song, dance and magic, but they also want to teach their audience how to cultivate inner harmony. The initial part of their performance at the Koret Auditorium (SF Public Library) will be a thrilling feast for your senses, but the second part of the program is more reflective, offering a brief course on the practice of Qigong.

Qigong is an ancient Chinese health-preserving exercise that has existed for at least 2,000 years.  As practitioners of Qigong, all the performers in the Meimen Kungfu Art Troupe at one time or another have experienced ailments that were helped by Qigong.

Founded by Master Lee Feng-san in Taiwan, he and his troupe have dedicated themselves to spreading the beauty of martial arts and how to achieve harmony between external form and internal energy (aka chi) through the practice of Qigong.

Besides San Francisco, the troupe will also visit Orlando, Houston, Los Angeles, San Diego, Seattle and Vancouver, Canada. The 90-minute free program will be bilingual and opened to the public on a first come-first served basis.
