CangZhou Qunying International Guo Shu Cup 2017

Guo Shu Cup krijgt een nieuwe naam!

Met trots presenteren wij Cangzhou Qunying International Guo Shu Cup 2017.

De tomeloze inzet van Sifu Eleonora gedurende de afgelopen jaren voor traditionele kungfu in Nederland is ook in China niet onopgemerkt gebleven.
Het afgelopen jaar hebben wij veel energie gestoken in een samenwerking met de regionale Chinese overheid in Canzghou.
Een samenwerking welk al vorm had met de regelmatige gastoptredens en gastworkshops van o.a. Wang Zhihai.

de komende maanden wordt er hard gewerkt aan het programma voor de de (ver-)nieuwde Cangzhou Qunying International Guo Shu Cup editie 2017. Deze zal worden gehouden op 28 mei 2017.

Reserveer deze dag alvast in je agenda!
Sponsor worden? Binnenkort presenteren we speciale sponsorpakketten voor het evenement.

Wat is Cangzhou kungfu?
Volgens www.china.org.cn staat Cangzhou op nummer 3 van de Top 10 Kungfu regio's in China.

Cangzhou Kungfu
Located in southeast Hebei Province, Cangzhou City is historically renowned for both its Kung Fu practitioners and acrobats. Living in a place of strategic importance which was frequently involved in wars in ancient times, the local people had to learn Kung Fu for self-defense and survival. As a result, the tradition of practicing Kung Fu prevailed in Cangzhou. Cangzhou Kung Fu dates back to the Spring and Autumn Period (770 BC - 476 BC). It rose in popularity during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), and was renowned at home and abroad by the end of the Qing Dynasty (1645-1911). It includes 53 schools of boxing and weapons, accounting for 40 percent of China's total number of 129. Cangzhou has been home to a great number of established Kung Fu masters, including Ding Faxiang, Huo Diange and Zhang Zhijiang.

Guo Shu Cup 2016

Guo Shu Cup 2016

This years Guo Shu Cup will take place on the June 5th, 2016 in Amsterdam. This year the competition will be held as a team competition. This competition is held to promote and encourage the practice of Traditional Kung Fu.

All forms must be traditional in nature without added modern elements. This competition is based on each school forming one or more teams so there is no individual competition. The price for each team to participate is € 100,- (for the adult teams). Each team must have a different candidates for the categories: hand form, a short weapon and a long weapon. Beside these categories, each team must also have a duida team. The duida team can be formed by either the existing 3 members or other candidates. It is important to us that the competitors take into account the kind of form they play. Please do not play a modern wushu form or a form that is played with modern elements added to it. This can only lead to disappointment on the part of the participant. There will also be separate category for children teams between 10 and 16 years of age. The price to participate for these teams is € 75,-.

This year we are happy to welcome master from China. This is a rare chance to see practitioners of old styles of traditional kung fu which we now rarely see outside of China. Come and see what you otherwise would never see!

In closing I would like to ask you to help spread the word about this competition. There are few schools that concentrate on the traditional kung fu and we would like to be able to reach them. Please let us know as soon as possible if you will participate.

As in years past we are doing our best to invite guests from China.

We hope to welcome you on June 5th at Sportcentrum de Pijp in Amsterdam. If you wish to participate then mail us
