Songshan Chan Wu Canada Academy
Chan Wu Federation International takes promoting Gong Fu culture as its prime task. In teaching Chinese Gong Fu, it introduces traditional Gong Fu etiquette and disciplines and precepts to its students, encouraging its students to cultivate martial virtues and establish perspectives and values applicable in life. Chan Wu has established several rank systems to recognize its students achievements in martial arts practice through examinations. The competition structure and rules developed by Chan Wu Federation International are one of the most standard systems among the competitions of the same kind in Europe.
Today, Chan Wu has its member federations in countries including Hungary, Italy, Austria, Belgium, Germany, Canada, Spain, Denmark, America and Romania with more than fifteen thousand students. The member federations have become the most influential Gong Fu organizations in their home countries. In fact, the number of people learning Chinese traditional martial arts in schools authorized by Chan Wu Federations has exceeded a hundred of thousand.
Chan Wu Federation International will continue its efforts in building the concept of uniting Chan with Quan among its students and to promote the understanding that martial arts practice is not only to learn a skill and strengthen the physique, but also to cultivate the mind. It is the purpose of Chan Wu Federation International that its students meet challenges with Chan wisdom for the better appreciation of life.
