Wushu is one of my passions, followed closely by dance. I specialize in taiji, and my love for this sport has allowed me to travel the world and share my passion with others.

Hello, I’m Marcus! Since I was young, I had a passion for martial arts. Bruce Lee and Jet Li were some of my role models. I practice northern praying mantis kung-fu and greatly enjoy learning new weapon forms.

I’ve been doing Wushu for a few years (blue belt now). I like broadsword but I’m also working on longfist forms.

I’ve been training off and on (mainly off) since high school. Traditional Kung Fu was what I started with but then found Wushu, Tai Chi and Bagua. Most of my spare time is spent recovering from workouts on Mondays.

I wanted an excuse to spar with my little brother, so I joined kung fu with him in 8th grade. A few years later he wasn’t so little, and fortunately for me, sparring did not happen frequently! I trained with Nick Gracenin in Sharon, PA for 5 years. Focused on my studies during undergraduate and now, I’m a graduate student at Cornell studying environmental engineering and I am happy to have found my wushu family again. I focus primarily on compulsory changquan/long fist forms! I enjoy trail running, biking and attempting to tickle my big younger brother.
