--Pergola workshop-- OSU Shuai Chiao Kungfu Club

From all over mainland China.

Shuai Chiao Kungfu, or "Chinese Kungfu Wrestling", is one of the oldest martial arts in the world.

Shuai Chiao - now commonly Shuaijiao (pinyin) - began countless years ago across what is mainland China.

Today, modern Shuaijiao includes punching, kicking, and joint-locking methods, but focuses especially on its famously powerful and dynamic throwing techniques.

It is known as the "Practical application of Tai Chi Chuan".

While considered an "internal" method based on Taiji, Shuaijiao is a rigorous throwing style that appears much like Judo or Jujutsu.

In addition to throwing, we practice kicks and punches, but in competition the wrestlers are limited to throwing techniques.

People practice Shuaijiao for physical health benefits, confidence, discipline and mutual respect, stress relief, and self-defense.

The Shuai Chiao Kungfu Club was founded by pioneering martial artist Dr. Daniel Weng over 30 years ago.

Our club is small, but has produced national and international level kungfu wrestlers throughout it's history, to this year.

Head Instructor Mike Grigsby has led the OSU Kungfu Club for over 25 years, and holds a 5th degree rank in Shuai Chiao Kungfu.
