Tai Chi statues

Ellen Anderson and Carole Mackintosh of the Fort Frances Tai Chi Club posed next to a statute of Chen Yangting, regarded by many as the “Father of Tai Chi." The pair visited Thunder Bay on the Victoria Day Monday for their club's induction of three Tai Chi statues into the city's "Tai Chi Park." The statutes were donated by Thunder Bay's "sister city,” Jiaozu, where Tai Chi was founded.
