About the Beijing Wushu Team
The world renowned Beijing Wushu Team is touring the San Francisco Bay Area in January. Considered one of the best wushu (moderinzed Chinese martial arts) teams in the world, the team's history is legendary. It has consistently dominated national and world championship events.
From 1975 to 1985, the team achieved a feat that no team has ever accomplished, before or since – winning the national championship for ten consecutive years. As Wushu competition has increased over the years, the team has remained a powerhouse in martial arts: the current touring team includes World Champion, Li Xin Yu and National Champion, Wang Xi.
The team has also produced a number of famous action movie stars. One of the team's earliest, and most famous members is Jet Li, who trained on the team from an early age. Zhenwei Wang, who played Cheng in The Karate Kid (2010), is also a current member of the team, and will be performing on the tour.
