Wushu Connection (added June 2007)
Two years ago I virtually knew nothing about wushu. My brother in-laws two boys had been part of a wushu club for the last few years and suggested that my kids give it a try. I brought my son down to the gym to try it out and he immediately fell in love with the sport. His excitement spilled over to his sister and convinced her to join the club as well. We are now all hooked on wushu.
Coaches (added June 2007)
The coaches at West Coast Chinese Martial Arts (WCCMA) Bruce Fontaine, Andrew Chin and Gao Ying have done a fantastic job with the kids. The newest addition, Richard, the acrobatics instructor, complements the coaching staff at WCCMA
