Welcome to wushu
Wushu has been my passion and sucker-up-of-free-time for 20 years. (If you don’t know what wushu is,click here.)
In this area of the website I share things I’ve learned about training, visiting China and how to make the most of your time in the wushu guan. I’ve got a LOT of blog posts about wushu (and even more that haven’t yet been posted up here) so you have plenty to check out.
As I work on revamping this website you’ll see more additions and improvements to the wushu section as I slowly migrate the rest of my videos, podcasts, blogs and photos from my previous wushu sites to this one.
