Zhao Qing Jian Wushu Champion
Zhao Qing Jian Wushu Champion

Zhao Qing Jian – All China Games wushu champion, gold medalist at the World Wushu Championships as well as the 2008 Wushu Beijing Olympics Tournament. Qing Jian recounts his thoughts and stories on wushu- In China, we learn wushu not only for fighting, it’s also for your health and body fitness. We call this “Wu De”. Before, when I learnt the shaolin wushu, we also learnt how to dual. However, we can’t just learn one thing, we must take this change to learn more forms. You must learn many different forms, for example taiji, Bagua etc to try it out because every form is special in it’s own way. For example, right now I’m training long fist (changquan), and I continue training in changquan, so maybe I feel it’s because I like it much more. Other forms i also train in, but maybe I’ll train less in them because I like changquan more. Changquan is very handsome, looks very beautiful and grand. This is how I feel.

When I was 7, I learned the basics of martial arts, including basic changquan, some broad sword swordfight, and some jumping basics. Probably for a period of 3 years. Then I started competing and had to learn the regulatory forms for the youths. Then I went to Shaolin, and learnt the traditional shaolin quan, like ma bu, and other different forms. Then I went to Wuhan sports university, where I learned national regulatory chang quan mainly for competitions.
