This workshop, organized by Beijing 2008 Paralympics Center and All China Federation of People with Disability, was first of its kind in China and it intended to promote the wheelchair Tai Ji nationwide to benefit people with disabilities.  Another important purpose for conducting this workshop is to lay the foundation for the wheelchair Tai Ji to be included as a demonstration event in the opening or closing ceremony of 2008 Beijing Paralympics.

During this four-day workshop, participants leaned the “Thirteen Moves of Wheelchair Tai Ji” form designed by Dr. Guo.  At end of the workshop participants received a teaching certificate issued by both the Beijing 2008 Paralympics Center and the All China Federation of People with Disability.

The decision for the Beijing 2008 Paralympics Center and the All China Federation of People with Disability to promote wheelchair Tai Ji was based on Dr. Guo’s recommendation.
