After making the US National Traditional Wushu team earlier this year, assistant instructor Wade Blevins traveled to Chizhou in Anhui, China at the end of October to compete in the 6th biennial World Traditional Wushu Championship. Wade won both a gold medal in his open hand form division, and a bronze medal for his three-section staff division.

As quoted in Indian Country Today, Wade said, “All the years of hard work and training in the gym, all the sacrifices I’ve made and eating better have paid off. I feel like I won this gold for my martial arts school, my family, my community and my tribe.”

Jaiyou, Wade!
