Trained in Kung Fu since 1989 and holds a 7th level black belt of the International Wushu Sanshoudao Association.
Zhenlong Yu was born in Puyang, HenNan Province in 1989. By the age of 6, he had already proven himself to be both a smart and diligent student, and in 1995, he was selected to study Kung Fu at the largest Kung Fu school in China, the HeNan TaGuo Chinese Wushu School. Spending an average of 6 to 8 hours every day in hard training, the physical demands on him were incredible. However, his tenacity and dedication to training have paid off: In his young career, he won first place in both the Youth Group All Around Championship in the 1998 HeNan Province Kung Fu Competition, and in the Youth Group Ground Fist and Double Swords events in the Bejing National Kung Fu Competition in 1999.
Expanding his endeavors beyond the realm of competition, Zhenlong Yu became a member of the HeNan Province Professional Kung Fu Team in 1998, and then on to the Shaolin Kung Fu Team in 1999. As part of these teams, he has performed Kung Fu in more than a dozen countries, including Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Canada, and the United States. His performances have been hailed all over the world.
Zhenlong Yu’s most recent achievements in competition include first place in both the Ground Fist and Double Swords events at the 2003 Hong Kong International Kung Fu Competition, and second place in the All Around Competition at the 2004 World Traditional Kung Fu Festival in Zhengzhou City, China.
Most recently, in 2008, Mr. Zhenlong Yu participated in RDK’s Ultimate Internationals Competition in Santa Clara, California. There he swept all Kung Fu weapon and hand form events, and went on to compete against the first place winners of all other martial arts styles. Defeating all other first place winners, Mr. Zhenlong Yu earned the prominent title of Grand Champion.
Mr. Zhenlong Yu joined the U.S.A. Wu Chi Kung Fu Academy in 2007. His natural gift for teaching and mentoring young Kung Fu students almost overshadows his innumerable accomplishments as a 7th degree black belt. His specialties include Ground Fist, Double Swords, Spears Art, Traditional Fist and Weapons, Health Promoting Qi Gong and Eight Sections Soft Exercise.
