The Wah Lum Kung Fu of USA delegation began tours to China in the early 1980s and is committed to continuing its mission of propagating the system and educating Wah Lum students through this cultural exchange. The goal of the Wah Lum China Tour is to maintain a strong relationship with our Wah Lum family in Shajing as well our Shaolin affiliates in China. In addition, we encourage students to learn about the ancestry, history, and roots of martial arts.
This exchange is a means of cultivating knowledge and understanding of kung fu, and to educate members on the history of Wah Lum with a pilgrimage to the hometown of Grandmaster Chan. The Wah Lum Performance Team will be representing the USA in the International Shaolin Zhangzhou Festival and Tournament to take place in Zhengzhou, China. The Zhengzhou provincial government began to organize the International Kung Fu Tournament and Taiji Festival in 1991 to promote cultural awareness and improve the international influence of the Chinese martial arts. The festival has been held in October every two years since then and the has become famous around the world. More than 2,000 athletes from 68 countries and regions traditionally take part in the festival. The tournament is sanctioned by Abbot Shi Yongxin of the Shaolin Temple and is on such a grand scale that it is commonly thought of here as the Shaolin Olympics.
Team members are put through an extensive selection process. Team members are selected because of their outstanding competitive skills and tremendous dedication to Wah Lum. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity!
We are in need of community support! You can help team members through financial funding, donations, corporate sponsorship, or media exposure.
