Alternative health practitioners from across the country and other health leaders receiving private invitations will be treated to demonstrations of Qi Power by Grand Master John Tsai and his Inner Circle on Saturday, Oct, 5. Grand Master Tsai is a 17th Generation Meihua Grand Master, two-time Shoalin Kung Fu Martial Arts World Champion, and Qi Gong Expert. He is President of USA Meihua Quan, leader of China Meihua Quan Association and Meihua Quan Alliance International, and serves as Ranking and Promotions officer for the American Karate Association. Martial artists around the world know his name and in Chicago he is fondly referred to as "the grandfather of Kung Fu".

Tsai's Inner Circle will share and display the power of Qi to protect and to heal. Nail bed, brick breaking and women withstanding more than a thousand pounds of pressure will enthrall Naperville families and community health leaders. Attendees will expand their understanding of martial arts, whether karate or qi gong, to improve our world.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Students and Qi Gong practitioners under GM Tsai, two medical doctors and others, will speak of their Qi and how it has supported their healing from Lupus and cancer symptoms as well as having saved one's life. Remarkable, incredible, yet true, these stories are intended to open minds to the power of Qi residing in the human body, a power to survive and surpass serious health concerns.

Preceding Grand Master Tsai's exhibition on health and power, DuPage County Commissioner Robert Larsen, Jr. and invitee Naperville Mayor Steve Chirico will honor Team AKA / Sideswipe members and their mentor, Grand Master John Sharkey, AKA President, for their patriotic support of our military men, women, and families.

These young adults make five to 25 trips annually to deployed Navy forces and families exhibiting their speed, agility, and caring for those who serve us all. Having just returned last week from Pearl Harbor, Guam and South Korea, they carry the images of and interactions with many who may well be their own age who stand guard for the USA.

American Karate Association World Headquarters, 1701 Quincy Ave. in Naperville opens its doors to those who have received private invitation to attend from 10:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 5. Naperville is home of the American Karate Association, one of the largest and oldest martial arts associations in the country.
