X865: Wushu: An underappreciated Martial Art in Splash Fall 2019 (Oct. 27, 2019)
Wushu is a form of martial arts that was developed by the Chinese Government, as a sort of consolidation of the vast majority of Kung fu styles. Though it can be used in combat, Wushu is more focused on a performance-based application of Martial arts, as can be seen on stage or in various shows and films. In this class you will learn basic stances, and potentially begin learning the Beginner Longfist form. Make sure to bring athletic clothing if you wish to participate, I can speak from experience that Wushu is difficult to do in jeans!
