Interview by Natalie Christopher
Tell us, what exactly is the Wu Shu Kwan style of Kung Fu?
Andri: Hi! Nice to meet you! So, Kung Fu is a Chinese Martial Art. There are actually numerous Kung Fu styles.
Wu Shu Kwan (WSK) is a full contact martial art. We learn how to defend ourselves and counter-attack.
In WSK Kung Fu, you are allowed to strike the opponent wherever you like. We learn how to break legs, punch in the groin. However we are always taught to respect our opponent.
