Sanda literally translates to “free fighting” and is a Chinese hand-to-hand self-defense system and combat sport.
Woody started studying martial arts as a 16 year old kid, where he studied Taekwondo and Karate. Woody has been coaching kids at Taekwondo and Mixed Martial Arts to adults for the last four years.
At the ripe old age of 27 South African born Woody has thrown himself into Sanda which is similar to Thai Muay Thai, accept elbowing to the head is not allowed.
Woody is quickly moving through to the finals and has been undefeated so far, his coach is Shenzhen legend Du Shan Yen who has been Sanda, Judo and Taekwondo champion for Shenzhen, Kong Kong, Macau and Guangdong so many time its just easier to call him Master and be done with it.
Woody will be having his final fight for the championship in the next few days so all Shenzheners are required to wish him the best. The fight will take place in windows of the world in front of the Ice Rink.
The last fight was attended by a vocal group of Woody’s fans with his cheerleaders in matching black mini-skirts, their dance routine proving to be something of distraction to the fight fans.
Students interested in being taught by Woody can contact him on 13425156556, it’s probably best to text him to introduce yourself.
