We’d like to wish a very happy birthday to 1st degree Black Belt, World Champion –the amazing Ms. Liu!
Ms. Liu has been a part of East West Kung since she started her training as a teenager in 2000. By 2001 she was traveling with the team to compete at the International level. After high school she went to Cornell University in New York where the more than 3,000 mile separation between where she was going to school and East West did not deter her from her training. She went on to earn her 1st degree Black Belt in 2005 and made her way back to the Bay Area after graduating from college.
In 2012 Ms. Liu trained to earn a spot on the USA National Lei Tai Team. She qualified by earning first place at the Nationals in Baltimore and went on win the World Championship in Malaysia later that year. In 2013 she was named the USKSF Female Lei Tai Competitor of the year for her outstanding performances on the Lei Tai the previous year. Currently she is training to defend her World Champion title at the World Tournament which will be held later this year in Argentina.
Ms. Liu, you are an incredible example of true dedication and embody the concept of “If there is a will, there is a way.” We are so glad you are a part of the school. We hope you enjoy your birthday today and look forward many more years of training together!
