From April 10th to 20th, with the strong support of the Confucius Institute Headquarters, the Martial Arts Troupe of Beijing Sport University (BSU) brought its grand stage show The Legend of Tai Chi Kung Fu to Central Asia for the first time on its tour to five Confucius Institutes in five cities in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, which became a hit in both countries.

The Legend of Tai Chi Kung Fu tells about a Kung Fu enthusiast pursuing his Kung Fu dream. The protagonist, knowing little about Kung Fu at the beginning, determines to learn Kung Fu from his masters and never gives up his dream despite all the difficulties. By cultivating the inner self while practicing Kung Fu, he keeps gaining insights into the truth of life and eventually becomes a Tai Chi master who keeps carrying forward Tai Chi Kung Fu.
