The History of International Shaolin Wu Chu Chuan Australia

In 1980, a karate practitioner boldly came into the kung fu school to test his prowess. The stranger claimed he was one of the top fighters in Malaysia and was interested in testing out Chinese kung fu. Master James accepted the challenge on behalf of the school and the karate challenger ended up with a lot of bruises and swelling over his body. He even came back the next morning to show his bruising and admitted that fighting Master James was like "fighting against a brick wall”.

Master James competed in and won a lot of martial arts tournaments whilst in Malaysia. Often, Yap Ching Hai would enlist Master James into the tournaments with very short notice, which gave only minimum time for preparation and training.
