Dayou Kung fu 

Welcome to the Dayou kung fu Website.  I am a student  of the Shang Wu Chinese Kung fu Association. ( Begun in 2002 By Master Shang Gao, His School has grown very much through out the St.louis area.  First, a little background on our teacher.   Shang Gao was born in Tian Jin in 1968 and  has been studying Chinese Martial arts since the 1978,  Shang  is a certified  6th duan senior Coach of Chinese Wushu. He started studying Chang quan in 1981, and then went on to study Baji quan ,Qiang style. Since 1983, Master Shang Gao also learned and practiced Pi Gua, Tong Bei, Shaolin, Tan Tui, Xingyi quan, Taiji,Bagua and Qigong.  He has won many Gold medals in Baji quan and has studied Wu style,Huo style and Xiao Baji quan as well.   after meeting Master Gao in 2002, I took a great interest in Chinese Martial arts.
      studying  Chinese martial arts with Master Gao since 2005. Starting with Chang Quan and Tan tui, I found I like Taijiquan, and Xingyiquan much more. It has been a great experience studying with Mr. Gao, he is a kind and patient teacher,but never compromises the details of Kung fu.
