Wushu

Category: Martial Arts

Never heard of Wushu? "Wushu" literally means "Martial Arts" in the Chinese language, and it is a blanket term covering all Chinese martial arts. Our aim is to teach and to practise Chinese martial arts as they are taught in China.

If you don't have any experience in martial arts or sports you are more than welcome; As long as you are willing to learn, our world-class coaches will get something good out of you; Just come along and experience the authentic Chinese Martial Arts. Visit our website by searching "IC Wushu", to see the training times and photos/videos.

Our sessions focus more on Modern Wushu which involves routines full of acrobatic movements and even using weapons (swords, sticks, spears, etc.). We have seminars on Shaolin Wushu and Taiji and trips to London gymnastics centres as well. From this kind of sport, you will gain strength, speed, flexibility, agility, spatial awareness, stamina and jump height, just to name a few of the benefits.

Some of the events for which we performed in the past are: IC UNICEF, IC Artsfest, IC International Night, V&A Museum event and "East meets West", Chinese New Year and a few of the competitions that our members participated to are: the Oslo Wushu Open and the Tang Long Competition.

And it's not all 'No Pain No Gain'; We have lots of socials such as club dinners and film nights showing Kung Fu films and our own films.

Hope to see you soon!
