Norways international Chinese Martial Arts Championship

It’s a pleasure to invite all our international Wushu friends to the 2017 Oslo Open International Wushu, Kung Fu, Tai Chi and Sanda/Sanshou (Qingda) Championships! In the previous editions we have had competitors from more than 20 countries, including both recreational athletes and European Wushu Champions and medalists. And this year we can already confirm the participation of several European champions and medalists!

The competition aim is to be a bridge between top level athletes and our new young Wushu generation in Norway for them to get inspiration and more knowledge about Chinese Martial Arts. We also want to build bridges with the modern, traditional and internal Wushu communities in Norway and abroad.

The competition is open for everyone, regardless of federation, club or national affiliation. Individuals may also register without a club. Oslo Wushu Team would like to welcome you all, and we also offer free accommodation at our Martial Arts institute; SANGROK KWAN LILLEAKER for those of you travelling on a budget.
