MEET THE TEACHER
ZHANG YI (Owner / Instructor)
Zhang Yi was selected to study Traditional Chinese Kung Fu when he was 7 years old. He spent 4 years training at the Shanghai Wushu (Chinese Kung Fu) Academy before being chosen to join the prestigious Shanghai Sports Institute. Training at the Institute was intense - 8 hours a day, 6 days a week for over 10 years.
At an early age Zhang Yi took part in national competitions and has subsequently competed and performed at home and abroad, representing China and Shanghai on numerous occasions. He has won many different awards for Tai Chi, Ba Gua, Chang Quan (Shaolin fist), Sword and Spear. In addition he is also highly expert in several other styles of Wu Shu including Nan Quan (Southern Fist), Broad Sword and Staff.
Having attained such a high level at a young age, Zhang Yi, has already been teaching Martial Arts for over 25 years. During that time he has taught many different students from all sorts of backgrounds, ages and abilities. As well as returning to the Shanghai Kung Fu academy as a teacher, he has also teaches children in schools and adults in local gyms such as Megafit, Gold’s Gym and Fitness First. Zhang Yi now spends most of his time coaching students at his ‘Hong Wu Kung Fu Centre’, located in the heart of Shanghai, and holding Early Morning Tai Chi/kung fu classes and BOA breaks for the attendees of conferences of International companies such as IBM, BP, Party People, Pepsi.
