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.
In addition, there is an International Competition in Traditional Taijiquan, where traditional Taiji (also written as Taichi) students will compete in the categories: hand form, short weapon, long weapon and ‘dui da’.
Beside this exciting team competition, there will be three amazing guest performances of three traditional kung fu masters from China. Zhang Hua and Zhang Fu He are two masters from the Liu He Men from China. The third guest, Wang Zhi Hai, is a highly respected champion in the traditional martial arts. He is also an enthusiastic teacher, who has a wealth of learning and training to draw from. Wang began training at the age of 12. He is currently the chairman of the Cangzhou Martial Arts Association, Cangzhou, Hebei.
