2019 World Kung Fu Championships Report

Posted on: 01/07/2019

A warm welcome back to our Pei Lei athletes who competed in this year’s World Kung Fu Championships in Emeishan! Our representatives received 5 Silver and 8 Bronze medal placings for Individual events. Pei Lei athletes also competed in the Duilian (Bajiquan) and Group (Taiji Broadsword) events, representing Australia and bringing back Silver for both.

The athletes were proud to represent their country and enjoyed the camaraderie of the other Australian team members from schools around the country, while building new friendships with Wushu enthusiasts from all over the world.

Special thanks to Shifu Alice for all her dedication in coaching and instructing all of our competitors, and also to Team Manager Krista for her efforts organising the team and looking after us all during the competition. Also a thankyou to our good friend Master Mark Sun at Cangzhou Kung Fu for his Duilian coaching.

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oi! Oi! Oi!

In Memoriam: Master Fu Sheng Yuan

Posted on: 28/03/2017

It is with heavy hearts this morning that we observe the passing of Yang Taiji Master Fu Sheng Yuan, son of Alice’s master Fu Zhongwen. Master Alice and the rest of the school’s thoughts are with his family and his many students throughout the world.

Fu Sheng Yuan worked tirelessly to achieve his father’s dream of spreading traditional Yang style Taijiquan across the globe, including many years teaching in Perth, Australia. His loss is a significant one for the Taiji community and he leaves behind an enduring and towering legacy of achievement and service to the Chinese martial arts.

Rest in peace Master Fu.

Introducing Pei Lei Push Hands Club!

Posted on: 24/03/2017

On Sunday April 2nd, we will be starting a weekly Taiji Push Hands group at the Baulkham Hills venue. This will be an open training group for Pei Lei Wushu students to develop their skills in Push Hands and Taiji applications in a safe, supportive, friendly and most of all, fun, environment.

We will be training both Fixed Step and Moving Step. It is an opportunity for people to deepen their understanding of the Taiji forms and experiment practically with different training partners. This will also be great chance for anyone competing in the TCAA Push Hands event to get valuable practice before the competition. Push Hands events are becoming more common in competitions internationally and was included recently at the KWA National Championships in Perth.

This will be more of a group training session than an instructor-led class, but with supervision provided by instructors Ben, Krista and Mitch. Each class, we will warm-up with co-operative Yang drills before moving into “open” training. If you’ve never done this sort of thing before, you can be eased into it!

Cost of each weekly session will be $10-12 (depending on turnout) to help cover the venue fees.

The group will start at 10:30am at Studio@104, Baulkham Hills Stockland Mall. Access is via the ground level car park, Row S. If you are attending, please wear soft-soled shoes to avoid damaging the sprung floor of the studio. If you want to practice competitive Moving Step Push Hands, we also suggest a mouth and groin guard for safety. While there will be no intentional striking or kicks to those areas, far better to be safe than sore and sorry!

If you are interested in joining in please get in touch.
