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.

Hellos, I’m Kelly! I’ve had a passion for KungFu ever since I was a little kid. I started learning a traditional southern praying mantis style when I was younger. I discovered Wushu a few years ago and I now practice Longfist. I enjoy learning new forms and different weapons.

I was born in Reno, NV, before moving to Maryland and living there for most of my life. I started Wushu at Omei Wushu Academy when I was in high school, and I still train there when I’m not in school. Now I’m aiming to learn new styles along with learning engineering.

Specialties: Taiji, Straightsword
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.
People often ask me, “Why do you do Wushu?”
Because everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Everything changed…

I grew up in Andover, Massachusetts, where I started kung fu when I was six years old. I also started tae kwon do when I came to Cornell. I used to focus mostly on sparring, but since joining Cornell Wushu I’ve come to love performing as well, and I’m always up for learning new techniques or styles.

Since I was a child actors such as Jackie Chan and Jet Li inspired me to learn martial arts some day and be like them. Cornell Wushu has helped me grow a great deal in that regards since I joined 2 years ago, and I look forward to growing even more.
Member | A&S’16 Math & Economics
Freshman from Pennsylvania who is crazy about kung-fu novels, television series made from said kung-fu novels, and theme songs from said television series. I have lived the first half of my life in China and the second half in U.S. including six years in Texas. I cannot/will not eat peppers even though I came from one of the two ‘spice provinces’ in China… And I’m really excited about all the kicks, punches, and people I meet in Wushu!

Specialties: Wing Chun
I am Tiffany from Guangzhou, China. I have been practicing Wing Chun since 7th
Grade, which is more introverted compared to Wushu and also focused more on sparring than on
performance. I am eager to learn more about various styles of Wushu and practice HARD!!
Member | COE’16 Electrical and Computer Engineering
I have no previous martial arts or athletic experience in general, but I’m willing to work hard to learn the art of Wushu.
Member | A&S’16 Chemistry & English
Cornell Wushu has inspired me to resume my martial arts training. I was once an almost-mediocre student of Shotokan karate (my Sensei told me so!), and I hope to reach at least that level in Wushu one day.
Member | COE’16 Undecided
Hello! I’m Kate. I have always been interested in Chinese martial arts but this is my first year trying wushu. It’s been a great experience learning new moves and spending time with the Wushu family. Looking forward to more years of wushu! (:

I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV (btw, I didn’t live in a hotel). As a child, I was infatuated with TV shows and movies that displayed various forms of martial arts. However, I wasn’t able to get the chance to study martial arts until I came to Cornell, so I am really glad to start my journey into Chinese martial arts through Cornell Wushu.

I’m a sophomore here studying bio in CALS *sigh, premed. I live on the Big Island in Hawaii (and yes, a lot of us surf, and no we don’t ride dolphins to school or live in grass huts). I just started Wushu this year and I love it! Can’t wait to learn more! JAIYO!

Hello! I’m Christian and I’m from the island of Puerto Rico. Didn’t know about Wushu until I came here to Cornell, but I have to say that it’s amazing. I’m a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, but Wushu has taught me so many things and I can’t wait to keep learning.
