In Memory of Richard Watson

Professor Zhang giving Richard a sword

Simon receiving Ru Shi Di Zi certificate 2022 saw the passing of Professor Zhang, the creator of Daoyin Yangsheng Gong. In 2023 we lost Richard Watson, who tirelessly promoted DYYSG in England for many years, and was a past president of the English Daoyin Yangsheng Gong Association

As well as teaching the DYYSG exercises in his many classes, Richard took groups to China, and brought teachers to England. In the early days he brought Professor Hu Xiaofei, one of Professor Zhang's close colleagues and students, to the UK. On a regular basis he brought Mark Atkinson, then President of the English DYYSG Association, over from Jersey to run workshops, and to teach at the annual Longfei summer schools. After Mark retired from the post Richard became President, and continued running classes and workshops and promoting Professor Zhang's teachings.

Richard will be sadly missed, but his inspirational teaching and promotion of the system will not be forgotten.

Welcome to the website of The English Daoyin Yangsheng Gong Association. The Association is a member of the International Federation of Daoyin Yangsheng Gong Associations, an organisation set up to promote the system of exercises devised by Professor Zhang Guangde

This website gives information on Daoyin Yangsheng Gong; its benefits; where you can learn in England, Europe and China.
