2012 Western Australian Wushu Championships

WACW athletes took part in the 2012 Kung Fu Wushu Western Australia state championships held at Willetton Basketball Stadium.

Our adult athletes displayed wonderful athleticism while partaking in a friendly competition showcasing the new 3rd Taolu recently set out by the International Wushu Federation. The sanda competition was fierce with WACW's fighter, Bevan Chia, coming up against a very strong fighter from Yao Lin. Congratulations to Bevan who was announced the winner after three rounds.
