2013-2014 HXGNY Go Tournament Finished Successfully

With the warm participation of all the players and help of many people, HXGNY 2013-2014 Go Tournament finished successfully Jan 26 afternoon. The players came from a very wide range of background. Besides many students of our school, we also had players from other Chinese schools, Manhattan and Toronto. While the majority of the players are ages 5 to 8 and have only been playing Go since September 2013, we also saw very experienced adult player Yingzhi Qian of 5 Dan coming to support our Tournament. The junior players were assigned to four different groups according to their playing levels and ages with four in each group. All players showed good attitude. After three rounds of matches, Yingshyan Ku, Serina Wang, Nuanyang Nova Wang and Andrew Wang won the First Prize. Emily Shi, Kilin Tang, Andrew Pang and Andrian Wang won the Second Prize. The rest of players won the Achievement Prize. We would like to congratulate all players for their full brain exercise and good sportsmanship. We appreciate American Go Association’s support to our Go teaching and events, the parents’ help on-site and the long standing assistance of Frank Zhu and Leo Lei to our Go Teacher. Our special thank goes to our Go Teacher Mrs. Jie Tang for her dedication and promotion for HXGNY to have such wonderful Go classes and tournaments. Please see the tournament photos here.

Recap: Education Seminar – America’s Public and Private School System

Last Sunday Dr. Bonnie Liao gave a talk about American’s public and private school. A lot of parents attended the seminar and discussion later. She shared her experience on both school systems:
1) Public school focus on standardized measurement, like standardized test, AP courses, etc. It uses those test to measure academic achievement.
2) Private school focus more on character development and how students learn.
To learn the detail about the seminar, you can listen the recording here.

New Adult Culture class – Bagua Walking Meditation

Bagua walking meditation – walking in a circle while holding fixed postures. It will energize and strengthen the body while calming the mind, and refining and purifying the spirit. The exercise will open and harmonize the meridians of the body and promote overall fitness.
Proven effects of practicing Bagua: Bagua calls for practitioners to assume twisted spine positions which not only help stretch the spine, but also enhance blood circulation to all organs. As a result, practicing Bagua can help prevent cardiovascular diseases, cerebral vascular diseases, osteoporosis, and among others. Furthermore, a person can become more flexible and agile as a result of constantly changing direction during practice.

八卦内功,是一种以掌法变换和行步走转为主的内家武功,柔中有刚。走八卦可以在强身健体的同时,平静净化你的头脑和心灵。坚持走八卦还可以帮助你打通经脉,以促进身体的整体健康。
经实践证明的走八卦的功效:走八卦要求练习者的脊柱处于扭转的姿势。这种姿势不仅可以拉伸脊柱,也同时促进血液在各个器官间的循环。所以走八卦可以帮助预防心脑血管疾病,骨质疏松症,等其他多种疾病。同时,因为行走过程中需要定时转换方向,走八卦还可以增强一个人的灵敏度。
