Wu Academy is moving Dec 5th and adding New Classes!

We are excited to announce that we are moving our classes outdoors under a massive 50 ft canopy/tent. We will have power for lighting, heaters, Wifi, a bathroom and large training space giving us more room than any of our schools have in the past and allowing us to stay covid safe in a private and more comfortable conditions… We will keep our training going strong rain or shine no matter what the elements can dish up.

Location:

Our friends at the Redwood Empire Chinese Association(RECA) have graciously opened up their 3 acre center in Santa Rosa so that we can setup an all weather canopy and hold out door classes sheltered from the elements. the RECA is a local non profit devoted to the promotion and education of Chinese culture and community. Wu Academy has long had a close relationship with the RECA and seeing as we are both devoted to teaching of Chinese culture this is a great fit and we are excited to have a new home. click below to get google map directions:

Wu Academy wins 13 trophies at the 7th annual Wine Country Karate Open

Congratulations to all competitors at the 7th annual Wine Country Karate Open!

Wu Academy sent a team of 6 volunteers to compete at the Wine Country Karate Open Tournament last weekend on Feb 21st, 2015. Everyone did there best and improved their skills in preparation for the tournament. Overall our six competitors brought home 13 trophies. Many students won 1st place in their divisions, and 10-year-old Student Yvette Tran won the all-around championships finals 2 times for empty hand and weapons forms beating many competitors including black belts and adults. We are proud of everyone that participated in the competition no matter the outcome or shiny awards. In our eyes, you became a winner the second you decided to put yourself out there and compete! Instead of finding an excuse to avoid the challenge you volunteered to challenge yourselves and train extra hard. In doing so, you should have no regrets no matter the outcome and you have gained valuable life experiences.

Honorable mention:

  • Yvette Tran (2-time grand champion, 1st place for staff, and 1st place for Changquan)
  • Benny Chanthavong, (1st place for Spear, and 2nd place for Nanquan)
  • Seth Burns (1st place for Nanquan, and 1st place for spear)
  • Liana Semet (1st place for Changquan)
  • Eric Snyder (2nd place for Broadsword, and 3rd for Changquan)
  • Frances Fowler (did not place this time, but we are so proud of her)
