IMG_3243 Finally, we have come to the end of the 11th National Primary Schools Wushu Championship 2015! The final day of the competition was held at Toa Payoh Sports Hall, where the various schools battled it out in the group events. IMG_3232 This year, more than 1,000 student athletes across 106 schools participated in the competition and Martial House is proud to announce that De La Salle School has attained the Overall 3rd Runner-Up for both Junior Boys and Junior Girls divisions! IMG_3236 De La Salle School’s achievements are the fruits of labour of Martial House Coach Leo Rui Yan (Reann) and the students from the Wushu team. When she was asked to share her thoughts and emotions with regards to De La Salle School’s outstanding results this year, Coach Reann said: “It was a journey that began short of a decade and a half ago, when we worked on just the traditional routines to inculcate within our students a culture of fundamentals of martial arts. Fourteen years later, with immense support from teachers and parents of the De La Salle Wushu team, the students have achieved Overall 3rd Runner-Up for both Junior Boys and Junior Girls divisions! Beyond teachings of the art, the team has also displayed characteristics of maturity and understanding, that winning and medals are but of mere importance, with the most integral of values being earnestness and humility, with teamwork and cohesive learning being the pillars of a successful process. I’m grateful for this opportunity and I would like to thank my fellow coaches from Martial House who have supported and helped me in grooming the kids from De La Salle School. I am only looking forward to more amazing times ahead!” Once again, congratulations to De Le Salle School and Coach Reann! IMG_2889 The annual competition also provided a platform for participants to interact and build friendship regardless of where they came from. When the coaches and students from Martial House and Wufang Singapore cheered for one another, it was like an reenactment of Chingay 2015 once again!
