An ethnographic survey in Guangfu "Taiji Township"

ContributorsPorchet, Pierrick
Publication date2019

This contribution is a short overview of Guangfu's taijiquan practices and the political transformations happening in this town located in the North China region. A first version of this contribution was published in Chinese as an afterword in Sun Jianguo's taijiquan manual. Master Sun ­– a taijiquan master native of Guangfu ­– invited me to write down “what I saw and heard” during my stay at this site. The original text focused on Master Sun views on taijiquan's recent developments and the political processes framing the local development of Guangfu. Here, I will also share observations of another taijiquan master – Yang Zhenhe – and his group of disciples.
