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).

Hello. I’m Ethyn, from tropical Hilo, Hawaii. I started Wushu during my freshman year at Cornell after a friend asked me to join, and stayed because of the freedom it gave me. My free time is normally spent cooking, playing with the Cornell marching band, or in my lab. I look forward to learning and performing with everyone!

Hi, I’m Erika! I’ve always been interested in martial arts and loved watching it, so when I found out about Cornell Wushu, I knew I wanted to join. I don’t have much experience with martial arts besides a few weeks of Capoeira and one day of Wushu, but I can’t wait to learn more and get to know everyone!

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’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.

Hey! My name is Matthew and I’m from Maryland! Back in high school, one of my best friends was amazing at Wushu and would regularly attend international competitions representing the United States. I was so inspired by this that I wanted to try my hand at it when I entered college! I’m so excited to learn new things and meet new people! Aside from wushu I enjoy playing clarinet and playing pickup basketball games.

Member | COE’18 Chemical Engineering
Specialties:
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!

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.

Heyo, I’m from Long Island, NY. I have never done Wushu before but I did do 4 years of fencing while in high school and I look forward to learning a lot while I’m a part of Cornell Wushu. I’m a nerd so in my free time I’m either watching anime or playing video games.

Hello! My name is Andy and I am currently from Albany, NY. I haven’t done Wushu before coming to Cornell; the closest thing to it was dabbling a bit in Taekwondo about ten years ago. Wushu has been a blast so far and I look forward to learning more new and interesting things! And I kind of like swords…

Hi, my name is Helen and I’m from Houston. All my friends keep asking me why I joined wushu of all things and tbh I’m not really sure myself, but maybe if I keep doing it I’ll find out one day.

Hey guys! I have never done Wushu, having only done a bit of Tae Kwon Do and Yang style Tai Chi in the past. I’m learning lots in this club and hope to have even more fun in the years to come! During my free time, I like to play video games and piano, and get bubble tea from Collegetown with my friends. I’m also really outgoing and I love to make myself and other people smile.
