Philosophy of Wu Tian

“Wu” is the first word taken from the term “Wu Shu” which translates to “martial arts” in English. On its own, it stands for fierce, valiant and miliary. “Tian”, the second component of the name, means “sky”.

“Martial Arts” is only an umbrella term for thousands of fighting styles and combat practices out there. Enriched with history, culture and tradition, the discipline is constantly being re-defined, branched out and improved. The world of martial arts has much to offer and there is no limit to learning. Hence, our name is rooted in the belief: With Martial Arts, Sky's the limit.

 Sifu Jai Chan Background

For many years, I have been active in volunteering and charity work. The nature of the work involved in helping and teaching martial arts to people from all kinds of background: victims of domestic abuse, women’s health group, LGBT community, paralympic wheelchair racer, deaf children summer camps and refugee kids martial art project sponsored by the Irish Government for three years. Naturally, I was exposed to some of the problems you see when you work alongside those who have gone through mishaps and in them, I feel strongly that everybody is equal and deserves equal opportunity. I found that my self-defence classes had the effect of empowering my student in mind and body and helping them put their differences aside. The experience gave me a definite sense of purpose. Since then, it has fueled my determination to set up a martial art institute. This institute is founded on the love for martial arts and the idea of equality. Martial Art should be accessible to everybody and my classes will reflect that. I hope my students keep an open mind and discrimination shall not be tolerated.”
