One afternoon I sneaked into Infinity More Than Medals(MTM)-Wushu Davao training area at the EastWest Centrum in Lanang.
There I saw young boys and girls ordered by a lady teacher to run and run faster. After that, she instructs them to form a line and do the splits.
For children, doing splits is very easy.  And looking at them, reminds of the young gymnasts in China being trained very hard by their mentors and in later years, they emerge world champions.
Just recently, MTM-Wushu Davao athletes won medals in Macau. Thanks to the program implemented by Master Yu Zhi Bo and the support of the parents.
I hope that the medalists can find the time to attend the DSA Forum at Tower Inn to share their wonderful experience.
By the way, the MTM Wushu Program is open to ages five to 21 while the Taiji which is a gentle and relaxing exercise, Sanshou,  a Chinese hand to hand combat and self-defense system, and Fitness Wushu, a style of martial arts displayed in movies by Jet Li and Jackie Chan, is open to all ages.
