Our Lineage


Here we present the lineage of Oslo Wu-Tan. Lineage is an important part of Chinese martial arts. Although the lineage of a practitioner cannot prove his/her fighting ability, it does serve as proof of that one has studied an authentic guoshu system. Lineage can be compared to a family tree. The purpose is to trace the origins of your style via the masters who taught them. It also serves as your identity within the arena of Chinese guoshu. In this section of the website, you will find information on the various masters who has influenced our club and our styles.
