If you haven’t already, check out the team’s YouTube channel! We’re still tracking down some competition videos, but as it is, the channel’s purpose is to provide interesting and relevant information to club members and give the general public a sense of who we are and what wushu is.
As of now, you can find these things on the channel:
- Competition videos of current members and alumni (club history)
- “Thriller” performances (club history)
- Videos that EVERY wushu athlete needs to watch at least five times (reference)
- Beginner weapons basics and forms (reference)
- Media coverage (club info/history)
On the subject of media coverage, both the club and current coordinator Dana Macalanda were recently featured in the Oregon Daily Emerald. The video covering the club and the article on Dana can be found on the Emerald’s website.
On an unrelated note: The “Thriller” video/s from this Halloween will be up soon. Soon as in probably after finals week.
Welcome to a new year with UO Wushu!
To all those who came to our first official practice on Monday (9/26), thanks for showing up and working hard!
An important date to take note of is Thursday (9/29) – the Club Sports Open House. It will be held on the EMU Concourse and will run from 6-7:30 pm. Every team affiliated with Club Sports will have a booth there, so this is a great opportunity for anyone interested in finding out more about the club to ask questions.
Returning members: You aren’t required to attend the open house, but if you’d like to help with set-up (5-6 pm) that would be super awesome. If you can’t make it for the set-up, feel free to stop by the table and say hi if you have time. Thanks!
