Our Philosophy

 The philosophy of the Wushu Cultu re Association is encapsulated in the phrases:

Jing Wu Yu Ren which translates as “The essence of wushu is to educate” and Xian De Hou Wu which translates as “First the morals and virtues; second the martial skills”.

And follows the martial principles of:

 Respect, Integrity, Commitment, Perseverance and Self-discipline.

The concept of the Wushu Culture Association is to provide individuals with knowledge of traditional Wushu-Kung Fu and/or Qigong and the opportunity to gain experience of different cultures.

 In this environment, practitioners gain a sense of involvement in wushu generally, build their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual faculties and discover how Wushu and/or Qigong can enrich their lives.

The renowned high standards of the WCA are the result of maintaining a highly competent, qualified teacher and select assistants.

Their job is to guide students in an efficient, well-structured and closely monitored programme to ensure excellent outcomes in the teaching-learning process.

Membership in the association is on an annual basis and parents; guardians and friends are encouraged to take an active role in the association’s plans, projects and general activities. Group performance and competition, determined by age, interest and ability, are encouraged through participation in the association’s events, not only at an internal level but also at regional, national and international levels.  The association also appreciates and encourages the support of parents to help encourage their children to develop their physical and mental potential and above all, their love, respect and enjoyment of this way of life.

In summary, we do not intend to train people solely in martial techniques. The aim is to use the vehicle of Wushu-Kung Fu and/or Qigong to allow people to fulfil their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual potential.

Wushu Ethics: Chinese Wushu embodies a profund philosophy and a sense of human life and social values. It emphasizes traditions, experience and rational knowledge, all of which are clearly reflected in the martial ethics of Wushu. That is why it can display the oriental civilization via combat skills and become an inexhaustible treasury of the human body culture.
Respect for Human Life
Emphasis on Moral Principles
Emphasis on Moral Conduct and Manners
Respect for the Teacher and Care for Each Other
Modesty and Eagerness
Freedom from Personal Grudges
Persistence and Perseverance

Qigong and Spiritual Health Principles:

Talk about your feelings
Make decisions
Look for solutions
Don’t live on appearances
Trust
Accept yourself
Don’t live in sadness

“Live without pretending

Love without depending

Speak without offending

Listen without defending’

THE DRAGON

The Dragon represents the spirit: the spirit involves alertness, vitality, confidence and positive attitude. Of all the animals represented in Kung Fu, only the Dragon is that of the imagination, this is significant because to develop the Dragon within, one must use visualisation. The mind must be conditioned to see the bright side of any situation, to positively affirm the future, to expect that wellness, harmony and good will, will prevail.
Only with imagination can one achieve the highest levels of the art.
In essence, one must have faith in the unseen positive forces of the universe.
