Australian NSW Chin Woo History

Chin Woo is one of the earliest community sport organisations in China for the promotion of traditional Chinese martial arts. The Shanghai Chin Woo Athletics Association is the first Chinese martial arts association founded in 1910 by Huo Yuanjia. Many Chin Woo Athletics Associations have since established in over 50 countries around the world. The Australia Chin Woo has been established in Sydney since 1976 by the late Li Yiu-Ling Sifu. In the last 40 years the NSW Chin Woo Athletics Association, a non-profit organisation, has created a good platform to unite all martial art organisations, with the same aims of promoting Chinese Wushu culture and developing a harmonious multicultural society in Australia. The first World Chin Woo Championship was held in Shanghai in 1990 and it was decided that such an important cultural event should be held once every two years. In October 2012, the 12th World Chin Woo Championship was successfully held in Tianjin China. The NSW Chin Woo Athletics Association assembled a dedicated Chin Woo Wushu Team of 30 members to participate in this international event and obtained outstanding results.
