Traditional Wushu is the Root of Competitive Wushu

Recently, Coach Emilio visited the traditional Hung Gar inheritor, renowned Hong Kong actor and long time friend, Grand Master Dr. Chiu Chi-Ling (趙志淩).

Understanding and keeping traditions alive is important for all Wushu practitioners. And in case of modern Nanquan, traditional Hung Gar is really the heart of it all. What follows is a selection of pictures from that morning.
