Discover Wushu with Freddy Paillard, new British Champion

With Steve Coleman (European Wushu Champion & Actor)

Freddy Paillard and his course of Kungfu Wushu, offer a new showcase in Swindon since 2 months.

Freddy Paillard, is a professor convinced of the benefits of the Wushu, a complete discipline, “which is not only a sport but also a lifestyle”.

Wushu means martial art in Chinese. The most important is to join all aspects of fighting (internal and external), without dissociating any of the practices (health, well-being, leisure, self-defence and competitions)

Freddy Paillard, trained in France, USA and China, 4th DUAN, former competitor and former head of the Wushu development in Normandy. He arrived in UK 1 year ago.

Courses are open to all levels (beginners and advanced): men, women and children. Members will practice Kungfu Wushu (modern and traditional, shaolin), Chinese kickboxing “Sanda” and self-defence (Jeet Kune Do).
