DiTan Park

We went to DiTan Park.......the Temple of the Earth.........its not as big as Tian Tan.........but in the morning lots of people practice Wushu there........ Xing-i, Bagua,shuai chiao, tang lang.......and my classmate Chen Xiang teaches Hun Yan Taiji to a large group of about 50 people.  Before we went over to the big group...we spent a couple hours working with Master Chen on Baiji......but not the version most people are use to seeing....his form combines the traditional Baiji with the principles of Hun Yan Taiji.  The key is to relax completely...Read more

Practicing Baguazhang

In our second session with Master Yang, he discussed the importance of theory and application.  First he mentioned that not everyone is so inclined, so they may be more interested in form practice.  But for high level practioners its important to know how and why we practice something.      Generally, being soft and continuous is important requisite to higher practice, then one has to learn how to be both soft and hard in the form.....generally soft on the defense hard on the attack.  If you cannot fajing correctly you cannot actually ...Read more

Thanks to SF Wushu

I wanted  to thank all the members of Sf Wushu Team for taking the time out to drive down to San Jose to perform with the Shaolin monks.  It was a small but very enthusiastic audience. The InMat Tournament was attended this year by lots of beginners and little kids; really good to see young ones competing....they are the future of Wushu.  It may be obvious but without a large pool of kids and beginners wushu will go nowhere near the Olympics, much work needs to be done at this level.  Wushu still lacks local and regional competitions and p...Read more

CalWushu Three-peats

The Cal Wushu Teams have been working hard this spring to get ready for the Collegiate Wushu Nationals this March.  I know things have been difficult because the team members had to be shuffled around so much.  But one of the most important attributes of a good martial artist is to be able to perservere in the face of adversity.  That's when your true mettle shows thru....the kung-fu is to be the last one standing!   Some of the group sets were not choreographed until the last minute as the team had members drop out or change teams. ...Read more
