The last day we stayed at Nashville this year, Grand Master Yang Zhenduo held a disciple
ceremony, namely the Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan 5th Generation Lineage Holder Ceremony.
Masters Yang Jun and Yang Bin officially became Grand Master Yang Zhenduo's inner disciples,
and Master Yang Jun became the Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan 5th Generation lineage Holder(Zhang Men Ren).
Grand Master Chen Zhenglei presided over this ceremony. Grand Master Sun Yongtian,
Grand Master Wu Wenhan, Grand Master Ma Hailong, Grand Master Chen Zhenglei,
Pat Rice, William W. Wojasinski, Carl D. Meeks, Lin Qiuya, Song Bin, and Chen Juan were
This ceremony was simple and solemn. Simple because we decided to have this
ceremony the same day it happened. We did not have lots of time to prepare it.
Solemn because all five style Grand Masters were there to witness this special ceremony
as well as the other special witnesses.
Everyone was so happy. After the ceremony, we drank, danced, and sang. Master Sun Yongtian
made lots of jokes which made us laugh endlessly. Master Ma Hailong performed Salsa (I guess),
and his wife sang a Spanish song. Master Chen Zhenglei and his wife sang a song. Even my son
Jason performed a Di Tang Chuan which he created by himself.
