Our classes

What do you teach at Oslo Wu-Tan Guoshu Klubb? And what is Goushu anyway?!?
The short answer is Traditional Chinese Martial Arts!
You may have heard of chinese martial arts as Wushu or Kung Fu, which translate to “Martial Arts” and “Hard Work” respectively. Older chinese fighting systems developed prior to the cultural revolution in China are often referred to as Guoshu (national arts).
These are often very different in character from modern wushu arts as they are developed mostly for warfare and close quarters combat rather than competition.

In Oslo Wu-Tan Guoshu Klubb, we mainly teach authentic Northern Praying Mantis Boxing (Tang Lang Quan), but some classes also delve into Chen Tai Ji Quan, Yin Bagua Zhang, and internal principles.


Oslo Wu-Tan Guoshu Klubb has a wide curriculum and our instructors focus on different areas of expertise. Therefore our classes will often center around different aspects at different times.
Yet the first half of each class will almost always contain joint loosening warm ups, stance training (learn to love it), body conditioning, Nei Gong (internal practice) and sets of foundational body mechanic drills (punching, footwork, etc).
Often the class ends with Praying Mantis form practice, while beginners are taught the fundamental movements and body mechanics through select exercises (lines) from Long Fist.

See you there:)
