Countless Chinese villages have been engulfed by modern cities. They no longer consist of picturesque farms and feng shui groves, but of high-rise buildings so close to each other that they create dark claustrophobic alleys—jammed with dripping air-conditioners, hanging clothes, caged balconies and bundles of buzzing electric wires, and crowned with a small strip of daylight, known as “thin line sky.” At times, buildings stand so close to another they are dubbed “kissing buildings” or “handshake houses”—you can literally reach out from one building and shake hands with your neighbor.

This year, Guo Shu Cup is about a team competition between the traditional kung fu schools in Holland and surrounding countries, for adults and for children from 10-16 year old. Every school send their best students specialised in the following categories: hand form, short weapon, long weapon and ‘dui da’. Most important is that no modern elements may be applied; it is all about the pure traditional martial art.
