Mr Dapeng Wang has lived, studied, and worked in Australia for 15 years. He is an accomplished educator with 25 years’ experience as a trainer and facilitator and has higher education qualifications from both China and Australia.  Dapeng has worked with various Australian government departments and educational institutions since his migration to Australia. He specialises in teaching Taichi martial arts, Chinese language, and China-specific cultural awareness.  Since coming to Australia, Dapeng has taught Mandarin for eight years and ran the Chinese Traditional Wushu & Health Academy for more than ten years.

Dapeng was trained in intangible Chinese culture by some of the most respected and wise educators in China. He describes himself as a “practitioner and communicator of Chinese traditional culture”. He is an advocate of understanding Chinese language and its intangible culture in order to understanding the China’s historical and cultural heritage.

Dapeng is a traditional Wushu disciple of the Cha Quan (Cha Boxing) and Xinyi Liuhe (Mind-Intention and Six Harmonies Boxing) Wushu schools, both of which are highly regarded styles with ancient lineages.  He has studied under some of China’s most accomplished martial artists, learning the Xinyi Liuhe martial art from Grandmaster Zhang Zhaoyuan and learning both the Cha Quan and Xinyi Liuhe styles from the family of Grandmaster Liu Yuntian.  Mr Wang is a graduate of the Wushu Department of the Shanghai University of Sport (S.U.S) with a major in Wushu Education & Training (his specialisations being Wushu, sports physiology and anatomy, traumatology and sports medicine). During his time in Shanghai, he continued his Taichi study with the renowned Taichi Grandmaster Fu Zhongwen.

Dapeng thoroughly enjoys delivering his Taichi, Wushu training and Mandarin teaching.  He acknowledges that the happiness derived from his teaching originates not only from the subject matter itself, but more importantly, from the positive energy of his enthusiastic students.  Dapeng strives to empower his students to become self-aware so they may fully realise the benefits of the Taichi, Wushu and associated intangible Chinese cultural elements.

‘It is not just for the sake of copying the Taichi movements from your teacher, more important is how the formation of the Taichi concept and what it discloses can touch you and make you want to explore it in greater depth’ – Dapeng
