About Us Join Our Team Training News & Events Contact & Links Hawaii Wushu Center


We are the UH Wushu Team, a team of students from the University of Hawaii who love Chinese martial arts.  In China the word "Wushu" is a general term which includes all forms of martial arts.  In the US we commonly refer to them as "Kung Fu".

Our team is a Registered Independent Organization of the University of Hawaii at Manoa.  Our roots go back over 35 years at UH to the forming of the UH Wushu Club in 1977.  Our members have stayed involved in Chinese martial arts in Hawaii for many years as teachers and long time students of the arts.

In 2015 members of our team joined with a wushu team from the Hawaii Wushu Center and entered the 23rd annual California Martial Arts Tournament in Berkeley.  As you can see from the picture above, they were successful, winning 52 medals!

Our team is sponsored by the non-profit Hawaii Wushu Center, which was formed in 1995 to promote Chinese martial arts and culture in Hawaii.  The President and Head Coach of the Hawaii Wushu Center in Xiu Zhang, a wushu champion from China who is the inspiration for their programs.
