The magazines been posted on the new dedicated magazine website, have you clicked on and read it yet? Visit and click the cover image of the issue you want to read. More issues will be added over time. Please note, the site is http not https so some browsers flag a safety warning; it is nothing to worry about as the site doesn’t collect personal details and doesn’t sell anything, it’s just google tightening up. We will be moving server as the magazine project develops.

Tai Chi for health related research project

Are you, or do you know a PHD student in a position to consider a Tai Chi for health related research project?

Note regarding Trademarking

The Chinese State continues to support and promote China’s modern ‘Global Brand’ of simplified qigong. TCUGB has agreed to be much more vigilant in future regarding any potential attempts to control the use of what we might consider to be generic and descriptive terms in the U.K. To this end we will be using a specialist computerised search service to watch out for certain terms appearing in new Trade Mark Applications in the U.K. for the latest update see Trademark Update

As the world continues to unlock, it is clear that many of us will be training using a mix of ‘live online’ and ‘face-to-face’. The technology developed massively over the last 18 months and actually was shown to increase the number of sessions per week attended. I am enjoying the opportunity to share and practice more; maybe you can share your stories for the next newsletter issue.
Best regards,
Mark Peters, Chairman
On behalf of the board of TCUGB
