My name is Yuan Zhang and my American name is Michael Zhang.
I graduated from Beijing Teacher’s College of Physical Education in Chinese martial arts with a degree of Bachelor of Education in 1987. I also received a master degree in Physical Education and Training from Beijing Physical Education University in 1999.
I love the career of martial arts training and enjoy teaching students. I have been teaching physical education and Chinese martial arts for over 20 years. I worked as the director of physical education department in Beijing ZhongGuan High School from 1995 to 2000. I received 5 excellent coach awards in Chinese martial arts in Beijing from 1994-1999. After I came to the United States, I taught martial arts in some Chinese school in New York City for a couple of years. Since 2002 I have been teaching Chinese martial arts in Tallahassee, Florida. Our Chinese Martial Arts Center has trained more than 200 students since its establishment in 2002. The students in our martial arts center have participated in many competitions. Four students got international Chinese martial arts Awards, four second places and four third places. Twenty five students in our Tallahassee martial arts center have received award in Chinese martial arts tournaments.
I actively participates martial arts tournament competition in the U.S. I participated in US Open Wushu Tournament in Washington D.C. and won six first places in 2007. I received two first places from the 20th International Kung Fu and Tai Ji championship of United States at Hunt valley Baltimore, Maryland in July 2008. I also received one second place in the 10th International Chinese martial arts championship in Orlando Florida in May, 2008.
Our Chinese martial arts center cares our community. We have been an active member participating in Tallahassee spring time parade for several years. We performed dragon dance and martial arts in the parade. We have also participated in many local community events including Asian culture festivals and FSU International culture buzzer for years.
I am experienced in organizing martial arts tournament. In August 2008, I organized South East America Chinese martial arts tournament in Tallahassee, Florida. The participants were from Tallahassee, New York, Washington D C, Tampa and Jacksonville. Their ages ranged from 5 to 70.
I enjoy teaching physical education and Chinese martial arts. I would love to build a cultural bridge between America and China through teaching Chinese martial arts!
