FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. What should I wear to class?
Comfortable sports clothes that you can move freely in.
We recommend pants, not shorts, for protection.
We recommend our NZ Wushu Academy club uniform (a set of jacket, pants, and t-shirt), but it is not compulsory until the second term of training.
Q. How about shoes?
In our Remuera and Onehunga venues we have professional wushu carpets to train on, however we ask that only clean indoor wushu shoes be worn on the carpets. For the trial class you may wear socks. Wushu shoes can be purchased from us if required.
For Glenfield and Howick classes, although we recommend wushu shoes, you may wear other sports shoes.
For young children, we recommend that parents double knot their shoe laces.
Q. At what age can my child start classes?
For wushu ideally children are at least 6 years old.
Things that are helpful for children to already know are directions:
left, right, front, back, and if possible - diagonal too!
For Sanda the minimum age is 12 years old.
Q. Do you have classes for adults?
Yes! We have adults class Saturday mornings in Onehunga, suitable for all levels. It is never too late to start learning.
We recommend adults attend the adults only class as the learning content and rate of learning is more tailored for adults.
Q. What are your fees?
First trial lessons are free. After that, payment is per term.
Please enquire with us for more details.
Additional family members can receive 20% discount for our Remuera, Howick and Glenfield beginner / intermediate classes.

Q. Can your group come perform for our event?
We have done many wushu performances - big and small, in the SkyCity with an LED screen background, at schools, at cultural events, and many more. We would love to hear from you. In return, we ask for a donation towards the New Zealand National Wushu Development Squad. Donations go towards their travel expenses when there are international competitions.

We have trained many talents athletes to compete in the:
New Zealand National Kung-Fu Wushu Championships
Oceania Kung-Fu Wushu Championships
World Junior Wushu Championships
World Kung-Fu Championships (traditional)
World Wushu Championships (modern)
and am aspiring to also compete in the:
