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.

This is my third year with Cornell Wushu and I have a learned a lot since I joined my freshman year. I really enjoy practicing wushu and hanging out with the wushu group, and I’m excited to learn and improve even more!

Specialties:
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.

Hi! I’m Christine and I’m from California! I initially joined wushu off a random whim but decided to stay because I liked learning long fist! (Actually, I stayed because of the food and because I love poking people!)

This is my third year practicing martial arts. I find Wushu to be a great way to exercise both the mind and body and my favorite style is Taijiquan due to its combination of slow and explosive movements.

Hi! I’ve loved martial arts since I was a kid and I look forward to practicing and performing with people who share my passion. When I’m not wushu-ing I like to play chess, debate, and a whole lot of other very nerdy things.

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.

Hey. I’m Andrew. I’m from Elmont, New York. I joined Cornell Wushu during freshman year. I have since practiced mostly long fist, but I am slowly learning more southern fist. I hope to one day do a split… and an aerial… and a b-twist… and a 720 lotus kick… all at once.

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.

Specialties:
Aloha! I grew up in Hawaii, and probably won’t use any more Hawaiian terms from this point on. I was introduced to Wushu by a friend (also currently in the club), and decided to stay because it is a great source of personal discipline, and the rigorous exercise feels really good after a long day of classes. Plus, it never hurts to have more people to try my food (*cough* fellow club foodies).

Member | A&S’16 Mathematics & Economics
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!!

Hiya! I hail from New Jersey (the suburbs, not the shore) and am new to this Wushu business. I have some experience with Tae Kwon Do, but I already prefer the aesthetics and precision of Wushu. I look forward learning awesome forms and making great friends!

Hi! I’m from the New Jersey suburbs. I love the flowing movement of martial arts forms, so I decided to try Wushu (the more beautiful, Chinese cousin of Tae Kwon Do, which I have experience in). Practicing is demanding at times, but my improving skills and the wonderful people in the club make it worth it. I’m looking forward to the next few years learning Wushu!

Specialties:
Hiya. I join Wushu because I want to master different types of arts and Wushu lets me practice two of them, martial and performing (when I get to that level, =p). The thing I love the most about Wushu is the people. Everyone is nice, fun, and helpful.

Yixi YangYixi Yang
Member | A&S’16 Math & Economics
Specialties:
I joined Wushu as a freshman last year without having any prior experience… in any sport. But Wushu is so cool that I decided to continue and am now starting to learn Tai-Chi and the fan form. I’m also a great Wuxia novel/TV series enthusiast, and I’ll also start singing at pretty much any time.

Specialties:
I am a Korean from Saudi Arabia and currently really glad to be part of Wushu. I started Wushu since the first semester of my freshmen year and I have yet to regret on my decision. Wushu provides me with a great physical workout, an opportunity to explore Chinese martial arts, and an affable group of colleagues. With various styles available to learn, I believe I will commit to mastering at least one style in the near future. Previous martial arts experience: Taekwondo 3 years, Karate 1 year.

Before coming to Cornell, I had no experience with Wushu whatsoever.  I have learned a lot from the club, so I want to keep practicing and improving with everyone else.  Besides Wushu, I enjoy mountain climbing and exploring the great outdoors.

Salutations! I’m from Hong Kong; I did Karate when I little and I’m pretty serious about Wing Chun. Cornell Wushu has been exciting for me and I’m always glad to see and learn new forms of martial arts, as well as meet nice people (glances at the other people on this page).

Hi, I’m Daisy! I joined Wushu because I wanted to start doing martial arts again after dabbling in Karate a long time ago. It’s been a great experience and I’m looking forward to even more Wushu in the future!
