After 56 years in the film industry, martial arts expert and actor Jackie Chan received a lifetime achievement Oscar in Nov 2016. As the first Chinese actor in history to receive the award, his success has come because of his passion for wushu.
Wushu, which means “war arts” in Chinese, is the term for all Chinese martial arts. The history of Chinese martial arts can be traced back to the 6th century A.D., though its actual origins are a matter of debate. Over the course of a few thousand years, over 1500 styles were created based on observations of animals and nature.
Thanks to the widespread popularity of actors such as Jackie Chan, wushu has become a new sports industry with the increasing influence worldwide. Many countries have national teams and participate in international competitions. There is even a bid to include wushu as an event in the Summer Olympics. It is fairly to say that it`s the very right time to learn martial arts.
To offer the best in martial arts training, physically and mentally, Dallas International Martial Arts Academy is established to provide a place where people can learn Martial Arts and enjoy the experience while making the commitment to learn and improve one’s self esteem, concentration, discipline and self-control.
