This weekend, a number of Pei Lei Wushu members will be competing in the 2016 Tai Chi Australia Open Championships. The competition will be held at the Sydney University Sports & Aquatic Centre on Saturday 4 June. Taiji hand forms will begin at 9.00am, with weapons and competitive push hands events from 1.30pm. If you have the time, you are encouraged to come along and show your support. For those competing – good luck and “jiayoo”!
The competition will feature Kung Fu, Wushu, Tai Chi and Sanda events. Pei Lei Wushu members, particularly those interested in competing for the first time should speak to Master Alice for more information.
It’s been a very long time coming but Pei Lei Wushu Association has finally released its revamped website!
Along with a substantial visual upgrade, we’ve improved the mobile phone experience, provided much improved photo galleries and hopefully made the site all round easier to navigate.
But we’re not quite done yet! Over the coming months we hope to be able to add more video content and general articles on Tai Chi and Wushu to benefit our students and friends from around the world!
As something of a “grand opening gift”, we have also published a collection of rarely seen photos of school founder Master Alice Bei Dong and her teacher, 4th-generation Yang style Tai Chi Grandmaster Fu Zhong Wen.
The Tai Chi Association of Australia (TCAA) is once again holding its Open Tai Chi Competition. This year’s competition will be held on Saturday June 4th, 2016 at the Sydney University Sports & Aquatic Centre.
The New South Wales Chin Woo Athletics Association has carried on the Chin Woo spirit and has been working hard to promote the traditional Chinese wushu culture. Alice Dong, President of NSW Chin Woo, has recognized that tai chi exercise is worthy to advocate and promote as a community recreation activity. In the celebration of 2016 Australia Day, simultaneously promoting tai chi exercise for health and spreading the Chin Woo spirit in the Australian community, the New South Wales Chin Woo Athletics Association, Pei-lei Wushu Center and the Eastwood Tai Chi Group are working together to hold a free Tai Chi Event at the Eastwood Mall on Tuesday at 8:30 morning, January 26, 2016.
On this special day, we welcome people of different countries, skin color and cultural background to participate and experience the inner harmony and health from the tai chi exercise.
Please visit the following websites for detailed information of the event:

Please also spread the news and come to support this meaningful event.

The Pei-Lei Wushu Centre held an 2015 end-of-year function on Sunday 13/12/2015 at Marrickville Wilkins Public School. The event was attended by nearly 100 students and guests. Students from all classes come together to show-case their achievements with a series of wushu and tai chi performances as a meaningful event for wushu cultural promotion.
The performance program consisted of group and individual demonstrations on wushu basic movements, traditional wushu fists and weapons, Chin Woo tao-lu, bagua-palm, Yang and Chen tai chi forms. Master Alice Dong put on a spectacular double-hooks wushu weapon and
bagua-palm performances in front of the guests and was rewarded with a huge round of applause.
Everyone stayed back after the event to network and to sample the finger foods and snacks brought in by the students. Group photos were then taken to end the party, and everyone is looking forward to meeting again next year.
In addition, the NSW Chin Woo Athletics Association and Pei-Lei Wushu Centre will be participating in the following 2016 Australian Day event, and the Chinese New Year Lunar Lanterns Community Programs organised by the Sydney City Council:
(1) Tuesday Jan 26, 2016 Australian Day Tai Chi Event: Pei-Lei Wushu and Eastwood Tai Chi Group will hold a free Tai Chi Event on that day at 8:30 morning in the Eastwood Mall
(2) Thursday evening 11/02/2016: Wushu Demonstration in front of the big Dragon Head Lantern
(3) Saturday afternoon 13/02/2016: Tai Chi Workshop at Martin Place
(4) Sunday evening 14/02/2016: Tai Chi Demonstration in front of the Tai chi Rabbit Lantern
Please spread the news and come to support these wushu cultural promotion activities.
The Pei-Lei Wushu Association will be closed for the festive seasons after the Sunday lesson on 13/12/2015. All classes will resume in early February.
The school will be holding an end-of–year event on tai chi and wushu demonstration on the afternoon of 13/12/2015. Please invite your family members and friends to support this function.
This will be an opportunity for all students to foster and share their learning experiences. It is also a good platform for students to show-case their achievements from the weekly training lessons, and to promote tai chi and wushu for health.
‘Bring a plate’ is a great way to share the party workload. We suggest each class ring a few plates of savoury dishes/nibbles and light refreshments to share for afternoon tea.
Date: Sunday 13 December 2015
Venue: Wilkins Public School, Park Road, Marrickville
