The philosophy of the Wushu Culture 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.
