Daniel Wu Visit

The club’s founder Daniel Wu will sit in on an hour of today’s practice before heading to the screening of his new film “Overheard 2″ at the Regal Valley River Center Stadium. Wu is visiting as a special guest of the annual Cinema Pacific Film Festival. Pictures and video will definitely follow the event, but for now here’s an article highlighting Wu’s visit in The Register-Guard and a 2007interview conducted by Brandon Sugiyama, another former member and coach who Wu trained.

UPDATE: A big thank you to Daniel for taking the time to visit us and. We really can’t thank you enough, and it was definitely an honor and inspiration to meet you. We’d also like to thank Henry Ho for sending us pictures of the practice.
