        【時報訊】第十屆國際中國武術錦標賽,5月23日至25日,在佛羅里達州Orlando市舉行,由師父Justin Meehan率領之聖路易代表隊囊括兩項全國冠軍,一項陳氏太極拳亞軍,分別是15歲的Jason Meehan榮獲男子組「推手」全國冠軍,17歲的Jardena Green榮獲女子組「推手」全國冠軍及Carolina Sanchez榮獲陳氏太極拳全國亞軍。師父Justin的三位學生此次參賽,共贏得10面獎牌。
        Jardena Green今年17歲,母親住在摩洛哥,父親目前在伊拉克美國陸軍訓練部隊,Jardena自己半工半讀,不但在森林公園社區學院修課,同時在校外打工賺學費,更跟隨師父Justin Meehan學太極工夫。和她的父親是好友的師父Justin Meehan並認養Jardena為侄女。
        14歲開始學習中國工夫,Jardena是在父親介紹下投入師父Justin門下,經過三年研習,師父Justin正式收Jardena為弟子。Jardena認為中國式武術哲學給她力量和洞悉事物真理之自我培養,她表示,如果我可以用太極哲學克服對手,那我也可以用太極來克服生活的困難。Jardena致力於研習太極渾元系統,結合陳氏太極和氣功及傳統中醫理論,將來希望成為一位老師。
        Jardena計劃明年拜訪師祖馮志強、張學新,並參加第二屆國際太極渾元會議及推手比賽。
        聖路易美籍太極師父,擔任律師的Justin Meehan是經過傳統正式入門儀式,成為陳氏太極拳第20代嫡傳弟子。Justin Meehan的師傅為陳氏太極拳第19代宗師張學信,師祖為馮志強宗師。
        Justin Meehan自1967年開始在紐約學習中國武術,專攻太極拳,1981年他親自到北京追隨世界知名的馮志強師祖學習。返美後再跟隨馮師祖在美國舊金山的資深弟子張學信師父學藝,經過20餘年的學習,Justin Meehan正式成為陳氏太極拳入門弟子。
        Justin Meehan師父目前在聖路易地區教授太極拳,同時是聖路易世界太極日組織人之一,他曾促使密蘇里州州長Bob Holden及聖路易市市長Francis Slay簽署每年四月第一個星期六為聖路易世界太極日,並在密蘇里植物園舉行慶祝活動。Justin Meehan同時亦擔任道家研究資源論壇之主席。

        Jardena Green is only 17 years old and living on her own supporting her brother and 18 month old baby,while her mother is living in Morocco and her father is called back to the Army teaching US. troops in Iraq.She can only find part time work because of her age, but still manages to attend Forest Park College part time.In spite of everything, she still makes time to study Taiji and assist her Sifu teaching beginner classes.
        She first began studying Taiji when she was 14 years old. Her father who teaches Aikido introduced her to Sifu Justin and formally asked him to be her teacher. After 3 years of private study he formally adopted her as his student and adopted niece. He believes that the Chinese martial arts and philosophy have the power to improve understanding and strengthen character. Although her life has been difficult she believes that the Chinese martial arts and philosophy have given her strength, insight and the opportunity for self cultivation. "If I can use Taiji philosophy to overcome my opponents, I can also use it to overcome life's difficulties" she states. "I am committed to the study of HunYuan system of Taiji (which combines Chen style Taijiquan and Hsing I with Taoist Qigong and Traditional Chinese Medical theory) and hope to become a teacher myself someday".
        She plans to visit her teacher's teachers, Feng Zhiqiang and Zhang XueXin, by traveling to China next year to participate in the Second Annual International HunYuan Conference and participate in Form and Push Hands competition. She has appeared with her Sifu in Tai Chi Magazine and also expresses admiration for the accomplishments of her contemporary, Sarah Dao.
