International Film Star, Jet Li, accompanied by members of the China World Champion Wushu Team, Chinese Wushu Association (CWA) and International Wushu Federation (IWUF), visited the NYSE for a Closing Bell ceremonyorganized by Allen Tjiong of the Wushu-Kung Fu Fitness Center. The World Wushu Champions were in New York for a performance at the United Nations to celebrate the 40th anniversary of China’s membership. In honor of the occasion, Jet Li, joined by Mr. He Qinglong, Vice President of the Chinese Wushu Association and Ms. Zhang Yuping, Chief of the International Wushu Federation Secretariat and CWA Foreign Affairs Department, along with several Wushu Champions, rang the closing bell.

About Chinese Wushu Association
The Chinese Wushu Association was established in 1958. It is under the Chinese State Commission for Physical Culture and Sports and is the organization which regulates martial arts training throughout China. In addition to being a national sport in China, Wushu is part of the national program for health and fitness and is taught in high school and university.

About International Wushu Federation (IWUF)
The International Wushu Federation (IWUF) was established in 1990 and holds the World Wushu Championships every two years. It is also responsible for efforts to qualify Wushu as an Olympic sport. The IWUF's application for Chinese Martial Arts to be recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) was prepared in Hong Kong in November 1998. The IWUF was accepted into membership of the General Assembly for International Sports Federations (GAISF) in 1995, which is the first step. The second step to reach the criteria set by the IOC is to have Wushu represented in a minimum of 73 countries, spanning 4 continents. Currently, the IWUF has more than 100 countries in membership, spanning all continents (Asia, North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Oceanic States). Many practitioners and fans of Wushu have high expectations that Wushu will one day soon be accepted as an official Olympic sport.  -  Allen Tjiong

WKFFC Coaches and Family enjoyed a very special Thanksgiving holiday dinner with 70's Kung Fu action star Angela Mao Ying!  Both Angela and Coach Allen's mother Sally starred in movies with Bruce Lee and had a wonderful time reminiscing about the "old days and long time friends".  Angela began her training as a young girl in the Peking Opera together with Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung.  She is a master of Wushu, Hapkido, and Taekwondo.  Angela's martial arts prowess and strong personality inspired a generation of martial artists and made her a role model.   After dinner, Angela did a Wushu pose with our Coaches and showed her still very impressive Kung Fu skills!

Check out Angela's incredible fight scene from the classic Kung Fu movie - The Tournament.

A massive flash mob performance highlighting Chinese and U.S. cultural exchange was performed Monday, September 5 on the Ellipse lawn in front of the White House to celebrate the 2016 China-U.S. Tourism Year.

Hundreds of participants joined the event which was part of the China-U.S. Tourism Year programs. There were also performances of Chinese martial arts by the Wushu-Kung Fu Fitness Center, traditional Shaoxing opera, Chinese folk dances, Western ballroom dances, and other opera shows.

Making 2016 as the China-U.S. Tourism Year was one of the decisions by Chinese President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Barack Obama during Xi’s visit to Washington last September 2015. A series of cultural exchange events have been held during the year.

Officials from both countries spoke highly of these events.
