USAWKF Coaches Course Certification Series

The United States of America Wushu Kungfu Federation (USAWKF) in an effort to provide the latest IWUF compliant technical information for the American Wushu community is starting to provide coaching courses on various aspects of wushu instruction to help American wushu coaches learn more about the technical aspects of competitive wushu sports both in Sanda and Taolu. The goal is to provide information to broaden the horizons of the American coaching community so American athletes have the opportunity to learn the most current rules, regulations under the best teaching methods available.

The first series of IWUF Compulsory Routines are the only forms allowed for the Group B age category (12-14 years old) at the 8th World Junior Wushu Championships (WJWC) to be held in Morocco scheduled for Q4 2020. This will be the first time Group B will be 12-14 as it was previously 13-15. In addition, the new 2019 IWUF Taolu Regulations will be implemented for the first time at the 8th WJWC.

With all of these technical changes happening next year, we have invited the highest ranking technical judge on the continent to teach a coaching course on the three most technically challenging compulsory routines; Changquan (Long Fist), Jianshu (Straight Sword) & Qiangshu (Spear). The focus of the course will be how to correctly teach these routines to comply with the 2019 IWUF regulations. Participants who successfully complete the course will receive a USAWKF National Coaching Certificate.



Participants are welcome to bring their own swords and spears if they want to use weapons that specifically fit them or there will be some swords and spears of various sizes to borrow.

Familiarity with the Routines

As this is a coaching course rather than an athlete course, the focus of the course will be how to teach these routines rather than teaching the routines themselves. The participants of this course must already be familiar with the 3 routines prior to taking the course. Below are some online resources to review the routines:

  • Changquan:
  • Jianshu:
  • Qiangshu:

Coaching Sanda Basics and Training Techniques for Taolu Coaches

InstructorIan Lee
Instruction Time3 hours
LocationArcadia High School Gymnasium in Arcadia, CA
DateFriday, November 8, 2019 6:30PM-9:30PM
Cost$369 (includes 2 IWUF certified Sanda kicking pads per participant, a $90 value)

Requirements: Each participant must have their own hand wraps and 10-16 ounce boxing gloves. Participants may either bring their own or order a set when they register for the course.

Contemporary Wushu is divided into two disciplines; Taolu (routines) and Sanda (fighting). But typically, the disciplines are seldom cross trained with most schools just teaching one or the other. This course is designed to change that by giving Taolu coaches the tools they need to teach Sanda.

Over the course of the three hour seminar, Taolu coaches will be taught Sanda training methods, how to put on gloves and hold pads, warm up and cool down athletes, striking drills, take downs, take down defenses and everything necessary to introduce Sanda into a Taolu training curriculum. Participants who successfully complete the course will receive a USAWKF National Coaching Certificate.
