Celebrating Chinese Culture in Merseyside with China Spirit.

Chinese paintingChina Spirit UK (hand in hand with Team Shaolin) held its first ever 1-day International Chinese Martial Arts competition in October 2016 at the Oval Leisure Centre in Bebington, UK. This was a great success, with more than 100 individual competitors. It started with a grand opening ceremony, which included traditional Chinese Lion Dance, Chinese fashion show and Chinese harp.  The participating clubs were invited to showcase their talents, with more than 100 people demonstrating tai chi at the same time. The competitors that took part were not just from the UK, but also from the USA, Japan and a number of EU countries; this totalled around 100 individual competitors. The event at the Williamson will build and expand on the success of the 2016 competition.
