Oslo Wu-Tan is a Chinese Guoshu (Kung Fu) club located in Oslo, Norway. We offer instruction in Northern Praying Mantis Boxing. The club is associated with the Wu-Tan Chinese Martial Arts Association. Oslo Wu-Tan was established by Shifu Paolo Castaneda, a disciple of Grandmaster Kurt Wong, in March of 2003. He began teaching classes at Sport & Mosjon health club where he began to attract students interested in learning guoshu. The club is continuing to grow steadily in Oslo, Norway.
The club promotes a friendly atmosphere where people come to learn martial arts and also learn about Wu-Tan's culture, history, and philosophy. In order to promote learning, classes are not taught in a militaristic manner, but with more focus on each individual. Of course in regards to training, it is taken very seriously and students are expected to work hard. We encourage everybody to work together to improve their skills and develop a positive attitude in regards to training, in order to better ourselves as martial artists.
The secret to excelling in guoshu is hard work and time.
The goal of Oslo Wu-Tan is to promote the traditions of Great Grandmaster Liu Yun-Qiao in Oslo, Norway. It is our hope that we may share our guoshu tradition and educate the public on Chinese martial arts. We welcome visitors to come and visit our training sessions.
