Following the 2-day seminar at Dr. Sport in Chengdu, we stayed in the city for an additional day and spent time at Sichuan Sports College. I was able to give a lecture to several athletes, coaches, and professors at the school as it was the largest group we had during the trip.
Following the lecture, I had the opportunity to have lunch with several other guest lecturers that were on campus as well. It was a pleasure meeting Helmut Hofffmann (Eden Reha – Germany), Professor Hua Yongmin (Beijing Sport University), and Professor Chunlai (Beijing Sport University). It was a great opportunity to take in some advice.
In the afternoon, Cara (my translator/escort) took me to the Giant Panda Research Base and we were able to check out the many pandas that were there. About 80% of the pandas that are remaining in the world live in the Sichuan Province in China. It was a unique opportunity and I was thankful Cara took the time to take me there as she helped me out tremendously all week.
When the time was up in Chengdu, our group flew back to Beijing, I was able to stay at a hotel close to the airport and was up early the next morning to head back to the US. It was a excellent trip and had a great time teaching B Strong BFR in China.
