Professional Wushu

Modern wushu consists of drilling and performing forms (taolu). A form is a routine or set of movements put together into a performance.

Routines are usually performed solo but can be performed by two or three practitioners together. Empty hand and weapons both exist in wushu forms.

Superstar Jet Li spent his childhood learning modern wushu - that should be enough to convince you to keep training!

Our professional wushu program is aimed at students who already have some knowledge of martial arts and would like to take it to the next level. Classes take place in Beijing's Shi Cha Hai sports school, where Jet Li grew up and where the current Beijing Wushu Team trains.

Wushu training takes place six days a week, from Monday to Saturday. Classes take place twice a day from Monday to Friday, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. There is no afternoon training on Saturday, only the morning.

Class sizes range from 8 - 20 students, although 10 is around average. Different teachers will be taking the classes depending on which specialization you choose, such as Chang quan or weapons.

As with all our programs, outside of class you will be able to join in on some of the great activities we hold, from ski and snowboard trips in the winter to martial arts games in the parks and foam parties in the summer!

Regular excursions are also available for students to areas around Beijing. Students of one semester or one year are eligible to participate in one or two trips free of cost, while the other excursions are available at great prices!

Shi Cha Hai, where our professional wushu program takes place, is just around the corner from Hou Hai Lake, one of Beijing's most famous locations. Shi Cha Hai is very centrally located, almost within walking distance of the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square.

Hou Hai Lake is one of Beijing's several bar streets, and laid-back cafes, restaurants, lounges and bars are found all dotted all around the banks of the lake.
