Lately wushu taijiquan is being picked up my media broadcasting, because they consider it as candidate of additional spots event at Tokyo Olympic Game. I suppose it'll be perfect timing to have big annual event as it is an opportunity to increase awareness to wider public.
Date and time
7/10, 7/11, 7/12
9:45-18:00 (could finish earlier/later)
entrance fee: 1000 yen (one-off payment for all program)
Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnagium
Other than categories my friends participate, the following programs are what I am looking for and would not miss:
Optional routine - all event
long weapon (changquan nanquan) Friday 17:00-
short weapon (changquan nanquan) Saturday 13:00-15:00
Fist (changquan nanquan) Sunday 14:00-
Traditional wishu final Sunday 10:30-11:12
Group event Saturday 12:30-15:39
Dual event Sunday 11:12-12:16
Most of above my favorite programs use either no.1 or no.6 - two courts close to the entrance, so I normally take seat around, the 2nd level north wing. But if you like taijiquan I recommend seats in the middle.
You can check out a whole program on jfwt (Japan Federation of Wushu Taijiquan) website in Japanese.
If you have free time next weekend in July, this is the place to go. I bet you encounter a new world of entertainment.
