Actually, the title of this page is a misnomer, this page is really a collection of results of China's Wushu Competitions and news about them. Due to the difficulty in obtaining this info in English, I'm not always able to get complete results or timely news. As with everything on this site, the results listed will tend to focus on the Beijing Wushu Team (hence the name of the page). This page is impossible without the help of my sources, who I will try to credit as much as possible (especially Lisa, the coolest person in the world).

10/5/04 - Wow, actually kept my self-imposed deadline! Here's the results (no article unfortunately) from the 2004 Women's Finals, held on 9/15-16 in Guangdong:

The Curtain Draws on the 2004 National Men's Wushu Championships

The 2004 National Men's Wushu forms championships were held 6/12-6/14 in Wuhan City, Hubei Province's Huananshifan Institute's Athletic Center. In all from across the country there were 37 teams and 204 athletes attending the competition. The Shandong team captured the team competition, the Guangxi team won the group set event, Shanghai Team's Wei Jian took the All-Around Champion title. There were 10 individual event golds (won by the following teams): Fujian - 3, Shanghai - 2, Hubei, Henan, Tianjin, Beijing, Shanghai Jidi - 1 each.

The specific winners are as follows:
Team Competition: Shandong Team
Group Set: Guangxi Team
Individual All Around: Wei Jian (Shanghai)
Changquan: Yang Yuhong (Shanghai)
Nanquan: Chen Shuai (Fujian)
Taijiquan: Yi Peng (Hubei)

Nangun: Song Lin (Fujian)
Taiji sword: Zhou Bin (Fujian)
Sparring Sets: Zhu Hainan, Wang Yansong, Cheng Runkun (Tianjin)

This competition is a relatively large competition, also it has some changes in wushu competition rules. From a spectactor and technology level point of view, things have improved. They are testing new wushu competition rule changes, keeping with the new national wushu taolu skill development requirements and the current training and competition situation. At the same time, they are following the course established for national competitive wushu athletics.

The National Sports Ministry's Athletic Wushu Center Director Wang Xiaolin offered positive remarks of this competition, at the closing ceremonies he said: "This competition's athletes have a new style, new sense, new face, combining the cultural essence of traditional wushu with splendid modern style. This is a fushion of the chinese people's cultural spirit and the modern Olympic spirit, revealing wushu cultural's distinctive enchantment and modern aesthetic. This demonstrates our country's wushu athletes's health, vigour, bold trailblazing, and positive enterprising spirit. Every team seriously endeavored to try the new competition regulations and new training methods and requirements. This comeptition shows that our men's taolu athletes' skill level has expanded and improved. Wushu taolu's athleticism and specatability are both strengthened. I hope each team can take advantage and strengthen their training for this year's Asian wushu Championships and next year's world wushu champions and the 2006 Asian Games, and the 2008 olympics, to develop their skill to win honor for the country with their outstanding skill.

Hmm, I'm not so sure I buy all that stuff there at the end... (and yes, I did invent a new word, 'spectatability' there...) They also put up an article summarizing the Women's competition (held two weeks later), I'll translate it when I get another free minute.

But I also forgot to post this up, its the only other article I could find about the results:

National Wushu Competition ends, our Province's Athlete Yi Peng gets the Gold.

Hubei Ribao - Zhao Feng, trainee reporter: Yesterday the National Wushu Competition being held at the Huazhong Teaching University's Youming sports hall ended. Our province [Hubei]'s athlete Yi Pengduo was #1 in Men's Taijiquan, winning the gold medal. This event is sponsored by the Hubei province wushu administration center, and is the first time Huazhong Teaching University has hosted a national level wushu competition, and there were over 30 teams representing their areas, nearly 400 top athletes of the wushu community were attending. On the evening of the 13th, during the men's taijiquan event, Hubei Team's Yi Peng performed splendidly, conquering the ring's judges, bravely taking the prize for this event. He took the Hubei team's only gold medal. After the competition, Yi Peng's coach Zhao Yong said: "Yi Peng has been training for this event since this winter, the movements and chorreography has been largely changed from the previous version. But with musical accompaniment, the movement's power is enhanced and enlivened. We will seriously evaluate the results in order to strive for a good outcome in September's national championships.

National Wushu Championships Sparring Event - Tianjin Team Takes 2nd Place

The three day National Wushu Championships (Men's division) ended yesterday in Zibo, Shandong. Two days before, after Wei Yueyong won Nanquan, local athletes competed in the sparring set division, showing much power, taking the gold medal in this event. In this competition, the Tianjin Wushu Team took two golds, three silvers and three bronze medals, a difficult accomplishment.

Zhu Hainan, Wang Yang Song and Cheng Runkun formed one team, and Wu Zeren, Yang Xiaolong and Zhan Changcheng formed the second team. The aspects of height, difficulty, novelty, risk and beauty of movements, separated the champion from the runner-up, these reflect this city's unique specialty in the sparring set division.


2003 National Wushu Championship Draw to a close, Shaanxi's Su Kefeng nabs the Gold.

Yesterday from Shandong's Zibo good news came, our province's taolu team [Shaanxi team] showed great skill: altogether getting one gold, four 4th places, two 6th places and one 7th.

Every year the Chinese Wushu world has two big competition events, but the competition held in the first half of the year was cancelled, making this final competition very intense. For our taolu team's gold medal is from verteran Su Kefeng. In the bajiquan event, he showed a very high level, becoming the champion.

The Sanda team and taolu team altogether took two golds and one bronze, achieving their predetermined goals.

4/04/02 - Here's a new article off of that I translated:

What's Wu Bin Been Up to Recently?
3/31/2002 by Han Longyuan

Lately Wu Bin hasn't been serving as the head coach of the Beijing Wushu Team, so the author can't help but secretly wonder, is he sitting at home unemployed? The author interviewed this legendary wushu leader recently at his Ditan sports center.


Author: Coach Wu Bin, its been said "a whole year's work depends on a good start in spring," in this critical year of the fight to get Wushu in the Olympics, what have you been up to?

Wu Bin: From 2002 on, wushu's focus should be first and foremost on developing wushu skill in order to prepare for entering the Olympics. Currently the International Wushu Federation and the Chinese Wushu Association are both focusing on this job, this is their number one priority, the International Wushu Federation chairman Li Zhijian is whole heartedly working towards getting Wushu in the Olympics. The Chinese Wushu Association's Li Jie is creating a "Wushu Into the Olympics" campaign. We in the Beijing wushu community definitely want to support this effort, we want to improve the sport of wushu and simultaneously promote it as a healthly activity for everyone and increase appreciation for wushu.

We at the Beijing Wushu Association announced our plans a long time ago, we want to do a really good job with our first big event, the Beijing Taijiquan, Taijisword and Push Hands tournament. We want to select the best athletes to attend the National competition. This event will be hosted by the Ditan Sport Center on April 27th.


Author: Wu Bin, there is news that you are no longer serving as the Beijing Wushu Team's head coach. What are your plans now?

Wu Bin: This is true, I've already passed the baton onto the younger coaches Yan Pinghe and Cui Yahui. Coach Yan will lead the men's team and Coach Cui will lead the women's team. Right now the Beijing Team is entering into a hard new period of training. The Beijing Team's ranks are in order, and their spirits are high, I'm very confident in them. Right now I've been invited by the East Beijing Sports bureau to help them train a new team of young athletes. This is going smoothly, the training center is already recruiting students nationwide, even though this was just publicized recently, we've already had many parents bringing their children in to try-out.


Author: I'm very happy to hear this great news! What is this wushu training center's objectives? Will it's curriculum advance the goals you mentioned before?

Wu Bin: Thank you. Principly, We are aiming at developing athletes for the 2008 olympics, the aspects we look for are: body type and physical health, especially speed, explosive power and flexibility. Of course team members' mentality and character are also important. This time we are recruiting a group of up to 40 males and 20 females to start training the first of September. The center's plans call not only for starting a long term training class, but also develop several different short term programs with classes scheduled every day from tuesday through sunday. We plan on training not only to increase wushu skill, but also to build character and discipline and overcoming the problems faced by only children.

After leading the Eastern Beijing Sports Bureau, I'm working planning the Ditan Sports Center and Physical Education Hall and the Beilu school, which includes an elementary and high school to improve their facilities. After this is solved, we can focus on training outstanding athletes in all aspects, character, wisdom and body. It really will be an international level training center.


Author: Besides training for competitive wushu, what other aspects will it cover?

Wu Bin: For developing Beijing's wushu athletes, competitive wushu is only one aspect. Traditional Wushu is the foundation of chinese martial arts, in Beijing's many styles, there are many 'crouching tigers and hidden dragons' (hidden potential), especially taiji, bagua, xingyi, baji, tongbei, paochui, huaquan, fanzi, chaquan and the many traditional weapon styles, therefore we must carry on these traditions as the foundation of wushu. Also we want to continue to cooperate with other city and provincial wushu groups, and welcome international groups to come and study.


Author: We hope your training center will develop new approaches to developing wushu and sow the seeds of a new rank of wushu athletes!


The Wu Bin Wushu training center contact information is: 010-64245625 and 64264768 (Ms Zhou and Ms Wang), 64245618 (Fax). Information regarding to recruitment will be presented on in the future.

Beijing Wushu Team starts their third round of examinations

The gist of the text here is that the BJ team had two testing sessions today (this was written on the 4th), from the results of the test, they can tell that the team has improved. Next weekend will be their final round of testing before attending the 9th All China games wushu competition in ShunDe, Guangdong.

The /cool/ thing is, I was actually there when this was happening. I talked to the guy from even. Although for some reason he didn't mention that in his article. ;P

Since I was there, I'll describe the pictures, the first one is of the judges table obviously, facing the competition ring where they were performing. On the left in Pink is former Beijing team member Ling Hua, I don't remember who that is behind her, I think Lu Jinming, and next to him is Cui Yahui, currently coaching the women's team. In the back corner the sports school's doctors were actually doign a lot of pre and post performance tests, that included blood tests (for doping I assume since they test for that at the competition), measuring heart rates, measuring different body parts and yes, the urine test too (they went down to the bathroom to do that, not right there).

The second picture is of Liu Qinghua performing the new compulsory Changquan. She performed it during the morning exam, since she's participating in changquan and the current format requires them to botn the compulsory and an individual form. For those of you who haven't guessed, she's right inbetween the jump front and jump inside in the first section.

The third picture is Pan Haohao, I don't remember what events she did that morning though (maybe straightsword?) and the last picture is Shao Changjun, who's staff really kicked ass.

Also for those of you who can read Chinese, check out this article -

Beijing Wushu Team will leave for Guangzhou on the 16th to attend the 9th All China Games

Basically it lists the athletes from the Beijing Team attending as well as some of their vital stats, I'm working on getting a translation.

Beijing Team in Yantai for Outstanding Training

(Tue Jul 3 07:43:49 2001)

Since arriving on the 5th of June, the Beijing Wushu Team has already spent a month in Yantai. In this time, the Beijing Team's major goal has been to acclaimate and increase the team member's physical level. The day before yesterday they underwent their second test at Yantai.

From Macau's preliminary competition to the present is over two months, after the competition the Beijing Team immediately reviewed their pre-competition training and competition situations. At the review meeting, everyone believed it would be effective if they did summer training. You should understand - around the finals the Beijing Team writes a report, they formulate three stages: 1. Revision stage, the five months after the prelims, 2. Recovery phase, from June 4th to now is the recovery phase. 3. Strengthening phase, at this time the wushu team goes back to Beijing to practice, which is the wushu team's final push before the competition.

At this summer training, for the wushu team the most important things are to increase their physical strength and especially prepare physical skill. it allows the coaches to concentrate on giving everyone physical skill classes. In these classes, although the team members feel especially tired, their effectiveness was evident from the second round of testing given two days ago. On the competition floor the team members had a lot of spirit, their movements were precise, their power unrestrained. Abundant energy guarantees finishing sets. In Yantai the Beijing Team planned two rounds of tests, from these two tests you can see that the atheles technique, physical ability, etc have all clearly improved. Wu Bin says, "Although our training hasn't finished yet, the training is very effective. On the 10th of July we're preparing to go to Shandong province's Jinan, to have a training exchange with the Shandong team. At the same time we'll also test the results of this training.

In closing, coach Wu Bin said this training's goal can be successfully accomplished. Originally there were two reasons for the training: 1, correctly mentally prepare, 2. to accept Yantai Shiyan School's physical education department and Chinese wushu professor Mr. Li Mingzhi's warmhearted planning and support. No matter what training place or living area, you must have a focused plan. During the resting time, they plan a visit to Liugong Island, the Memorial Hall for the first Sino-Japanese War and other places, giving the team members a lesson in rich patriotism.

- Apologies for the poor translation! Also, in case you missed it, the other day I added up a page on the East Asian Games, with links to video clips, results and an interview with Wu Bin about the the competition. Click here to read it.
5/22/01 - OK, sorry for the delay, I never actually put up the final two results I found out on the web from the last day of competition, namely -
all-around female broadsword/staff - Wang Xiaona - Beijing
all-around male straightsword/spear - Gao Song - Tianjin     
But it doesn't matter, because now the official results are up. See all top 12 finishers from all the divisions, including score and team, in English, Chinese or even Portaguese -
4/27/01 - More results, this time from and -
Women's Taiji All-Around 1. Fan Xueping - Anhui team 17.81 2. Liang Xiaokui - Guangdong 17.77 3. Qiu Haifang - Beijing Women's spear. 1. Li ? Hu - Chongqing 1. Zhao Yangyang - Henan (tied) Men's Broadsword/Staff All-Around 1. He Jingde - Beijing 2. Sun Chunhe - Tianjin 3. Qi Jianyong - Hebei Men's Taiji All-Around 1. Hei Zhihong - Beijing 2. Qianfeng - Jiangsu 3. Si Weize - Ningxia Women's Straightsword/Spear All-Around 1. Zhao Yangyang - Hebei 2. Chen Bei - Shanghai 3. Liu Qinghua - Beijing
Keep in mind that this competition is only the qualifier for the /big/ competition, the 9th All-China Games, which will be in October. The top 12 finishers in each event will qualify for that competition. So obviously we're missing a lot of results here.

The Beijing Team's morale is high, it can't be denied! The current Beijing Team lineup has depth and breadth, considerable killing power, enough to give the opponents a beating at the 9th games.

[note - it actually litarally says stuff like 'killing power' and 'give the opponents a beating', I'm not making this up!]

Also Emilio shared some results on the message board (note, I tried to fill in some of his blanks as best I could) -

some men's result (sorry for spelling errors) changquan: Zhang Shaopeng (Tianjin) nanquan: Chen Shuai (Fujian) daoshu. Zhao Qingjian (Beijing) jianshu: Tang Kangmin (Sichuan) gunshu: Jian Zenjiao (Beijing) qiangshu: Zhang Weidong taiji: ? and the female's: changquan: Liu Qinghua (Beijing) nanquan: Wu Qing (Fujian) daoshu and gunshu: Wang Xiaona (Beijing) jianshu and qiangshu: Zhao Yangyang (henan) taiji: Liang Xiaokui (guangdong) best anecdote is that liu haibo in staff missed the crossed leg sitting stance after the jumping inside kick, he placed his hand on the carpet and went down i don't know how many places for that deduction!
Additional information translated from (exceprts from interview with Wu Bin): (apologies for my poor translation, thanks to lisa for help with parts):

The China Wushu Individual Event Nationals took place in Fuzhou Province on September 7-10. The top 12 athletes in each event at the China Wushu Team Nationals held earlier this year qualified for this competition.

During the three days of fierce competition, the Beijing Wushu Men's Team bagged gold in Spear, Staff, Broadsword and Traditional (category 3) Barehand. On the Women's side, Beijing's Wang Xiaona took gold in Broadsword and Spear. Liu Qinghua secured gold in the Longfist competition. Overall, the Beijing Team scored satisfactorily.

The competition rules, athletes competing in changquan must compete in international compulsory and individual forms, these two division's scores are summed. Nanquan adds nan dao (women) and nangun (men), also taijiquan must practice two forms, 24 style and individual taijiquan. Broadsword, spear, straightsword, staff also add international compulsory form and individual forms.

In the men's changquan division, Zhao Qingjian's balance movement and 720 twist split had small errors, Jiang Bangjun's changquan, spear, straightsword all had small movement errors, therefore there were no first place winenrs in men's changquan, straightsword, women's spear or straightsword. Zhang Jidong got the spear championship, but during the competition period, but due to eating some bad food, he had to go to the doctor three times for an I.V. drip. which effected the straightsword competition. Additionally last year while in competition in America Liu Qinghua was injured, since returning, she injured her ACL while practicing, missing big competitions three times. After resuming practice, her movements were relatively heavy, every day she had trouble keeping food down, therefore her health is much weaker, while in this competition, her strength is better, she competed in 8 events in three days, power not as much as her strong competitions. Her spear and Straightsword balance movements both have errors.

This competition also includes unexpected winners. Guangdong, Tianjin, Guangxi continously have dominance in the Nanquan event. This time, male and female champions were taken by Fujian. For sparring sets, Tianjin usually wins every year, this time the men's champion was taken by Shanxi and the women's was taken by Guangdong.

Every year from January to April the Beijing Team usually goes to the National Wushu Training Center in Los Angeles to practice and exchange, through Mr. Eric Chen's warm invitation. But this year's invitation has some special circumstances, because there is an important competition next year. A few athletes with hopes of winning medals will go to Kunming to practice, at the same time, the Beijing Team will visit South America. Liu Qinghua, Jian Zen Jiao, He Jingde on the 19th-25th of this month will follow the Beijing Wushu Group to Tokyo Japan to attend the Tokyo Wushu Taijiquan Alliance and Beijing Wushu Society's Commemoration of 20 years of exchange.

Additionally, Beijing Team A-team member Qiu Dongxing will soon go to Washington DC's US Wushu Academy to conduct exchange, Jiang Bangjun, He Jingde and Hei Zhihong will go to the Hong Kong Wulian and HK Wushu Team for joint practice.

By the way, there was a little on the men's nationals last month that Lisa helped me find -

Beijing Wushu Team - Heros of the entire country (sorry, thats my best translation) - Beijing People's Daily (5/30/00)

Basically it just says that The Beijing Team took the team championship out of 33 teams participating. They also took the all-around, changquan, and boardsword championships, as well as the top three places in staff. It mentions that Zhao Qingjian, Jian Zenjiao and He Jingde took firsts.

6/01/00 - Competition Schedule in China for 2000 - While searching for results of the recent men's competition, I did come across this schedule for competitions in China. Its in Chinese, and I don't think I'll have time to translate it. (Its not too hard to figure out if you have a chinese viewer, even if you don't know Chinese very well):


Hopefully the results will be out soon. I've heard the Beijing Team did pretty well.
