About Master Helen Wu:
Helen Xiao-Rong Wu was born in Shanghai, China in 1956. She began her training in the martial arts when she was 3 years old, studying under both her grandfather, legendary martial artist Zi-Ping Wang, and her mother, Professor Ju-Rong Wang, the first female professor of martial arts in China.
In 1999, Kung Fu/Tai Chi magazine, a leading U.S. martial arts magazine, and the Canadian journal, Martial Arts Fitness and Profiles magazine, both honoured Master Wu’s extraordinary talents as a teacher and her inestimable contributions to martial arts. In February 2004, Kung Fu/Tai Chi magazine again ran a feature article celebrating her achievements as a pioneer in the introduction of Chinese martial arts and healing systems to North America.
Master Helen Wu teaches Tai-Chi credit courses at the School of Kinesiology and Health Science at York University in Toronto, Canada.
