We swing swords and do backflips for fun. We are performers and competitors. And sometimes, we sell egg rolls.
This is UCSD Wushu.

01 What is wushu?

UCSD practices contemporary Chinese wushu, an exhibition martial art developed after 1949 in the People’s Republic of China based on traditional Chinese martial arts. Wushu performances and competition are based on routines, called forms (taolu), in various events representing different styles and types of weapons used in traditional Chinese martial arts. In addition, there is also sparring (sanda), although the club does not practice sparring.

02 I'm a beginner; can I join?

We welcome people of all ages and experience levels to come share our passion by enrolling in wushu classes on rec.ucsd.edu as well as to form lifelong friendships by hanging out at club events.
