The Martial Arts Exhibition 2008 in Houston brought a wide variety of martial artists together from April 4th through 6th. Among them, students of Grandmaster Wei who had not seen each other for decades came from all over the U.S. and Taiwan to pay their respects to Grandmaster Wei, tell stories about the old days, and share their kung fu with each other. On the first day of the event, the internationally acclaimed Dr. Su Yu-Chang gave an interesting and entertaining speech, followed by various people in Grandmaster Wei's lineage performing a variety of 8-Step forms for the public. The following morning, Dr. Su Yu-Chang led a workshop on Bagua's 8 Character Palm. Here are some photos from the event.
