World Champion Wushu Kung Fu Show August 14

Anyone who has marveled at the grace and dexterity of a martial artist in action is in for a treat: George Mason University is hosting a World Champion Wushu Kung Fu Show from 3-5 p.m. Sunday, August 14 at the Center for the Arts on the school's Fairfax, Va. campus.

Not only will you see the artistry behind Kung Fu, but you'll see it performed by some of the world master Kung Fu artists, including the internationally acclaimed actor Jet Li.

The show will offer an exhibition of beginning movements, as well as high flying aerial kicks and precision fighting skills.

Here is the description from the Center for the Arts:
For the first time ever, the United States of America Wushu Kung Fu Federation and the O-Mei Wushu Kung Fu Center present a never-before-seen Kung Fu spectacle featuring the world's top Wushu Kung Fu athletes on one stage.
Witness dazzling aerobatics and fierce fighting routines performed by more than 20 world champions from China. This nationwide performance features the extravagant martial arts seen in blockbuster Hollywood movies such as "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," Jet Li's "Fearless" and Dreamworks' "Kung Fu Panda."

There has never been an event of such caliber. All athletes were invited by the Secretary General of the United Nations and will perform for the United Nations in New York City with appearances from Jet Li and other renowned Kung Fu masters.
