Dozens of tai chi practitioners, including 100 women, attended the Friday event, which included demonstrations of traditional Chinese arts such as Kung Fu and a Qigong lesson.

Moreover, a number of artists and foreign diplomats from China, Austria and other countries, among others, attended the event, which was organized by the International Red Dragon Organization in cooperation with the Municipality of Tehran.
