The training sessions create a keen understanding in Wushu and develop students into individuals with highly desired characteristics and values. Every vigorous training emphasises on the development of Performance Character in Wushu – a high level of commitment, a competitive nature with ‘Play to Win’ mentality, and achieving one’s full potential.
The aims in Wushu CCA are: to instill discipline, responsibility and mutual respect and cooperation in the spirit of Wushu to create a culture of excellence by having stretched goals and a growth mindset to mould the competitive nature with a ‘Play to Win’ mentality so as to respect one’s hardwork and respect the game. to develop confidence and one’s potential through mastering and exhibiting moves and routines for performances and competitions. to cultivate a passion for Wushu for lifelong learning.
A strong foundation is key to excellence and both the mass and school team members go through the basics before moving on to various moves and routines of higher difficulty. Students are always challenged to give their best under the watchful eyes of encouraging teachers and coaches. The juniors can always look up to their seniors as they show the way to master the skills through determination, showcase their moves and routines with confidence and demonstrate patience and care to others.
What will your child learn?
During our weekly CCA sessions, pupils are trained by qualified coaches to develop mental and physical stamina. These enable pupils to acquire the necessary skills to perform their tasked routines. The routines include Weapons, Tai Chi and Fists, all of which require precise hand, eye, body and leg coordination. Other than the routines, pupils are also trained to express charisma through movements to enhance their stage presence.
Wushu pupils are expected to be physically fit, have self-discipline and most importantly, have an interest in learning Wushu.
Concern and challenges
Why is there a need for training and extra hours invested?
During the second half of the year, a school team consisting of pupils who have the potential to take part in the annual Championship will be selected. In order to prepare themselves for the competition, these pupils commit to rigorous training 3 times a week. This means that they would have to make time amidst their busy studying schedule to attend the training sessions, which are held after school and on weekends. Some of our Wushu seniors who achieved stellar results in the Championship have gained admission into the secondary school of their choice through the Direct School Admission (DSA) Exercise.
What can the child benefit from training and competition?
Through Wushu, we instil perseverance, diligence and self-discipline in the pupils, which are crucial attitudes that would help them achieve academic excellence. These important life skills will be carried with the pupils and benefit them for a lifetime.
