Wushu––a somewhat interchangeable term with kung fu––describes Chinese martial arts in general. While it was once practiced for war, today it largely consists of performance routines, incorporating the punches, kicks, grapples, throws, and even weapons of traditional martial arts. Instructors focus primarily on Long Fist techniques in classes, teaching large circular motions with high kicks, low stances, and impressive jumps.
We adhere to a strict four year black belt program which includes 1 year of basics in wushu and basic self defense, followed by 3 years of empty hand (Changquan, fighting set, and Nanquan), weapons (sabre, staff, sword and spear), including beginning, intermediate and advanced compulsory routines and advanced fighting sets.
The National Wushu Training Center is temporarily closed. Coach Matthew and Coach Eric will be teaching in Beijing until early 2016.
National Wushu Training Center was established officially in 1986 in Huntington Beach and Los Angeles, California. Known for training quality wushu and competition athletes, Eric and Debbie Chen also hosted VIPs of wushu including the presidents of the Chinese Wushu Research Institute in Beijing, Xu Cai, Zhang Yaoting, Li Jie and great coaches Wu Bin, Wang Jinbao, Men Huifeng, Cheng Huikun, Wang Nan, Chen Daoyun, Lue Shaojun, Guo Pei, Ma Zhongxuan and many more.
