NANJING YOUTH OLYMPIC GAMES WU SHU TOURNAMENT

Peter Warr BCCMA Vice Chairman was invited by the Organising Committee to be one of the top officials at the Wushu Tournament In his capacity of IWUF Technical Committee Vice Chairman.

At the last World Junior World Championships which was held in March in Antalya Turkey, 40 different countries from the five continents qualified for this prestigious Tournament.

This is the second time Wushu has held a tournament at the Olympics, to become an official Olympic sport there are many boxes your sport has to fulfil and tick to match up to the Olympic Charter.

There has been much hard work done to get Wushu recognised as a professional sport and organisation, at these events Wushu is put on show so that the Olympic Committee can see how far we have come to try and match their Charter.

The very first session of the Tournament was observed by the new Olympic President Thomas Bach, he also attended the first medal ceremony presenting the Gold Medal to a very proud young female athlete in Changquan.

During the Tournament many of the IOC Committee members come to watch the young athletes compete at the highest level including the previous president Jaques Rogge who also presented at the medal ceremony.

A sports laboratory was set up so that the Olympic Athletes and IOC committee members could try out new sports this was a great success with many taking part and being trained by the Wushu Champions from the five continents.

There were many pictures taken with Thomas Bach training in Wushu Technique of which he enjoyed very much, Jacques Rogge Spent his time at the sports Lab learning Taijiquan and is now going to take up this fascinating discipline.

Double Book Launch

Self Defence for Women
Lavinia's book is called "Self Defence for Women" and is based on her self defence method of A.P.A.P (Awareness, Psychology, Avoidance & Physical). This book covers many differing aspects of self defence, focusing on the point that martial arts is a cultural discipline where self defence is concerned with survival. Dispelling the most common misconception made that you must learn a martial art for self defence.
The Kung Fu Handbook

Peter's book is called "The Kung Fu Handbook", which takes a beginner through the history of Kung Fu and what is involved with finding the right instructor and style to suit the individual. Also included are safe warm up exercises, and the Traditional Kung Fu basic's (eg. Stances, kicking, punching and body co-ordination exercises). There are over one hundred different styles of kung fu and many more variations, the book explains about the different styles of Northern & Southern Kung Fu systems. There is also two different Traditional routines of Kung fu. One is Tan Tui (Northern Spring Leg) and Xingyiquan (Mind & Will Boxing).


Both books have hundreds of beautifully illustrated pictures with easy to read text to follow each move step by step.

Lavinia's book is a must for the women who wants to gain confidence and knowledge for their own self protection, and Peter's book is for the student wishing a deeper knowledge of Kung fu.

A special thank you to the students that took part in the photoshoots, Elaine, Edward, Boycee, Berdita & Jason.

Both books are available now!
