Raffi's Wushu Bio

My longtime amigo Patrick Lee got me into Wushu back in our freshman year at UC Berkeley. I've loved it ever since, I may not be that good at it, but I train hard and I find I am constantly improving.

Here's some info about my training in Wushu (try clicking on the links).

NEWSFLASH! Yes! Summer of '99 I finally went to China! I spent the month of June training with the Beijing Wushu team, mainly focussing on Xing Yi Quan and the Three Section Staff.
