UMBC Wushu Club is a free sports club founded with the sole idea of promoting Chinese Wushu in the collegiate environment. If you have had any interest in martial arts via movies, demonstrations, choreography, etc., this club is for you. No prior experience is needed! All you need is warrior spirit.
We strive to equip each of our club members with the skills necessary to excel in competitive Wushu tournaments. The Wushu Club encourages intense training in order to produce skills of the highest level. We drill basic kicks and jumps in order to prepare practitioners for Modern Wushu forms that incorporate stances as well as acrobatic techniques for our bare hand and weapon forms.
We use a variety of weapons including bo-staves, straight swords, and broadswords containing roots used by the military personnel from ancient China. These techniques possess applications in self defense, and although the weapons look realistic, they are not dangerous, especially in the hands of one who is trained.
Wushu not only looks cool, but it can also help maintain a healthy body, teach discipline, and is very rewarding. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or come to the UMBC Wushu Discord (https://discord.gg/c54vz7TvsU). Join the UMBC Wushu Club today!
*You can usually find us practicing Modern Taolu at the RAC Arena Court every Monday and Wednesday from 7pm-9pm. Our Tai-Chi classes are Fridays 6-8pm at the RAC Arena Court. Tai-Chi is an internal style focused on energy flow and relaxation. We also hold Wing Chun classes on Sundays from 4pm-6pm in the Fitness Studio. Wing Chun is form based practices dynamic for self defense and practical use. Although the times for practices are set, you are not obligated to stay the entire time. We hope to see you at those times!
