Summer Time!

It is summer, but that doesn’t mean the team hasn’t been active!  Many members have gone back to the valley for the school break and have been attending Jade Moon practices.  Those that have stayed in Flagstaff have been training around campus.  Keep an eye on the Facebook page for updates on when these practices are being held!


This coming weekend is a tournament in Los Vegas.  We have one person competing so lets all give Lianna Rivera our Jiayou’s and good lucks.  Everyone who can should go up to Vegas to support and cheer her on in person.  The competition will be held Saturday, August 3rd at the Tuscany Suites and Casino located at 255 E Flamingo Rd in Las Vegas, NV (about a five hour drive from Phoenix and a four hour drive from Flagstaff).  If you cannot go, no worries.  Video and photos will be taken during the event.


WUSHU CAMP!  Yay!  Everyone’s favorite part of summer, right?  The dates have been set so mark your calender as BUSY for August 20th-25th.  This is a six day camp, every night from 6PM to 9PM.  The camp is being held at the St. Matthew’s United Methodist Church located at 2540 W Baseline Rd in Mesa, AZ (85202).  Entree to camp is a $30 fee but it will be well worth it; body conditioning, basics perfecting, apparatus practice, form memorizing and so much more!  So be there or be oddly rectangular shaped.


There are only 26 days left until school starts!  Can you believe it, less then a month!  Team Practice dates are currently unannounced.  We have at least a few known people planning to show up to the first few practices so lets do our best to keep up the friendly and helpful attitude to welcome them with open arms.  We want to try to expand our numbers even more this year – could imagine taking 30 people to collegiates!  In addition to scheduled practice, there will also be extra practices so if you feel like you want to push yourself a bit more, don’t forget to show up.  Those will be announced in the Facebook group, just like before.


Keep working hard over this last month of freedom summer and don’t forget to at least stretch every day, even if you can’t actually get out to train.  Even that will do wonders for the return to practicing weekly (or daily, for some).  I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer and is ready to return to practice and classes with a fire in their hearts and a pride for what they do!


Team Practice

Hey everyone! This is just a reminder that the Fieldhouse will be closed for the remainder of the semester. NAU Wushu team will be practicing in the Health and Learning Center (HLC) at 7:00pm on TUESDAYS and THURSDAYS. Remember, no more practice on Mondays. We will be on the South basketball courts getting our Wushu on! See you there.
