new-website-screenshotIt’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 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.
