(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners in Northern Ireland visited Cambudo Martial Arts School to introduce Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa) on July 3, 2016. The principal and students learned the exercises together. They also learned about how this peaceful cultivation practice has been severely persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and many present signed a petition supporting the efforts to end the persecution.

Tom Campbell, Grandmaster and principal of the school, said he was grateful that his wife had brought home a flyer about Falun Gong, so that he had an opportunity to invite local practitioners to introduce the Falun Gong exercises in his school.

Mr. Campbell said that he had been searching for a genuine cultivation practice his whole life, and he had invited other cultivation ways to come and share at his school. But he realized that Falun Gong is the genuine Dafa (Great Law) that he has been searching for.

After learning the five sets of exercises, Mr. Campbell said that the whole process of learning was a fantastic experience. Chris, a student at the school, said that he felt extremely strong energy in his hands while learning the exercises. “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is needed by everyone in this world!” he exclaimed.

After learning the exercises, practitioners at the martial arts school display a banner reading “Falun Dafa Is Great” to show their support for Falun Gong.

Students sign a petition to stop the persecution in China, especially the forced organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners and other prisoners of conscience.

Mr. Campbell was pleased when he was given a copy of Falun Gong, Master Li Hongzhi's work, and said that he would read the book carefully. He indicated that he believed that it would be helpful in his life and martial arts research. He also hoped that the practitioners would come again to teach the exercises the following month when many more students return from their summer vacation.

Chris shared that he was overwhelmed by sadness years ago as a loved one unexpectedly passed away. He hoped that through learning Falun Gong, Dafa's principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance will enable him to become free of the pain and suffering sooner.

After the session at the school, Mr. Campbell invited the Falun Gong practitioners to his home. During their conversation, he pointed out that more people should be informed of the CCP's crime of harvesting organs from living people. He thought of posting Falun Gong information on the school's Facebook page, and also publishing it in their martial arts magazine in hopes that more people will learn what Falun Gong is and make efforts to help end the persecution.
