Two-day Huo Yuanjia Martial Arts Trip

Master Huo Yuanjia (1867 - 1910) is one of China's most famous martial arts masters and founder of the Chin Woo (Jing Wu) chain of martial arts schools. Jet Li, Jackie Chan, and Bruce Lee have all played the role of Huo Yuanjia in their films.

In this exclusive trip to Huo Yuanjia's hometown, learn his traditional style of martial arts - taught by his descendant, visit the Jing Wumen school, and sample the local specialty steamed dumplings.

The first day is spent in Xiaonan village, where Huo Yuanjia grew up, visiting the Huo Yuanjia martial arts school and Jing Wu Men academy.

Watch Chinese students flying through the air preparing for national competition, and then learn a Mi Zong Quan form of Wushu (kung fu) under the instruction of a Chinese national champion and descendant of Huo Yuanjia.

Meet Huo Yuanjia's grandson or relatives and listen to him tell you one of the old Master's tales.
