         At the meeting, Professor Guo Qiongzhu, Party Secretary of Department of Physical Education Teaching in Xiamen University, deputy director of Department of Art and Fitness Research Center in Xiamen University, was elected as the first president of the research society, director of Department of physical education in Xiamen University and Director of the Institute of Martial Arts and Fitness Research Center in Xiamen University. Associate Professor Li Rensong was elected Vice President and Secretary General of the Research Society.

At present, colleges and universities in Fujian Province will carry out health Qigong teaching, competition, scientific research and other activities, indicating that the health Qigong activities are spreading. However, since Fujian province didn’t have health Qigong research society before, colleges lack the communication and cooperation on health Qigong. Therefore, the Fujian College Students Sports Association Health Qigong Research Society, jointly driven by Fujian Province Sports Bureau, Fujian Province Health Qigong Association and the Fujian Provincial Association of College Students and other units, was born in the well-known Xiamen University.
