It’s with great honor that I announce the 9th Congress of the IFFPSS. For the first time we will actually have a World Congress I presume. Because it is the first done in Asia and probably should contain the majority of nationalities participating. The Organizing Committee, under the command of Dr. Chihwen Twu, is not measuring efforts to make everything look perfect. It will be a unique chance to exchange experiences and learn from the best teachers in the world. I’m looking forward see you in Taipei.
