Beatty Secondary School Wushu Overseas Training Trip to Xiamen, China

Beatty Xiamen (1) From 7 to 12 November 2014, under the guidance of Martial House Managing Director, Mr. Leo Wen Yeow and Coach Kevan Cheah, students from Beatty Secondary School went for a Wushu Overseas Training Trip at Xiamen, China! Xin Qi Martial House Star, Chua Xin Qi, a National Double Silver Medalist, was one of the student participants who went for the trip. Wushu Daze has conducted a short interview with her to find out more about the training experience in Xiamen! Beatty Xiamen (3) Wushu Daze: How was your overall experience in Xiamen? Xin Qi: My experience in Xiamen was awesome! It was much better than Beijing. Oops. Wushu Daze: Why? How is Xiamen different from Beijing and Singapore? Xin Qi: Xiamen is different in terms of the weather. It was much more cooling there. Training wise, it was also different as we did new 组合s (combinations of movements) which was something fresh to us. I enjoyed myself and learnt a lot! The athletes were also much friendlier compared to those in Beijing. This is probably because the kids in Beijing were younger and shy while the athletes in Xiamen were mostly in their 20s, hence they were more outgoing. Wushu Daze: Do you think that the training trip was beneficial? Xin Qi: The training there was definitely beneficial! I have learnt different ways and styles to execute and express certain actions. Beatty Xiamen (2) Wushu Daze: Does this trip inspire or motivate you to work even harder for the upcoming Inter-School Championship in 2015? Xin Qi: Definitely! I am motivated to work even harder! I am grateful for the coaches and athletes for teaching me so many new things which I can showcase in the upcoming competition! I am really looking forward to it! Wushu Daze: That’s great! So what was the most memorable part of the trip? Xin Qi: The most memorable part of the trip is the visit to “Hu Li Shan” (厦门胡里山炮台) where the performers fired the cannon which was so loud and thrilling! It was super exciting to witness the ‘live’ firing of the cannon! This is something I will not get to experience in Singapore! Wushu Daze: So, will you want to go to Xiamen again if you were given the chance to? Xin Qi: Yes! I would definitely like to visit Xiamen again! Personally, I feel that Xiamen is better than Beijing in terms of training and shopping! Beatty Xiamen (4) Really glad to know that Xin Qi enjoyed her Xiamen trip! Hopefully Martial House will conduct another trip to Xiamen in the near future so that more students are able to go and have a fruitful experience! Beatty Xiamen (5)
