Wushu & Tai Chi NSW Committee of Management

  • Helen Rivett, President

    As the current President of the Wushu & Tai Chi NSW, I take great pride in being able to work with people of all ages who are interested in Wushu, Tai Chi & Qigong. I spend time organising various events including monthly workshops, demonstrations, talks, fundraising etc. Each year we help people to participate in seminars and competitions, both in Australia and overseas. As a member of the Wushu Council, Wushu & Tai Chi NSW encourages all schools and clubs to work together. . 
  • Lanna Leung, Communication Officer

    I came to learn about Tai Chi and Qigong in 2013 when my employer started its first staff lunch time Tai Chi session in Health Awareness week.  I found the Tai Chi moves amazing and fell in love with it.  Since then, I have learnt a number of different forms, including Fan and Sword.  I enjoy it very much and practise regularly. As the Communication Officer, I help disseminate information on seminars, workshops and conferences organised by our Association. 
  • Khoo Cheng Choo

    I’ve been practising Tai Chi and Qigong for many years for Health and Lifestyle reasons. Over the years the gentle practice has energised and strengthened me in subtle yet discernible ways. I value the calmness, enhanced balance and vitality that Tai Chi has accorded me. I wish to share this passion with people and being a member of the Committee and the Wushu Herald Editor, I have opportunity to contribute to the spread of Tai Chi’s amazing qualities to the community.
  • Larissa Koroleva, Vice-President

    Dr Larissa has a broad knowledge and experience in Wushu coaching, competitions and administration. She was a member of the National Australian Team in various roles and served on the Traditional Wushu Committee of the International Wushu Federation. She also coached the NSW teams successfully performing in overseas competitions. Dr Larissa devotes a lot of her time and efforts to promoting Wushu, Taijiquan and Qigong in Australia, and particularly in NSW. She is always available for help and advice.
  • John Nau

    John has been practising Tai Chi for a number of years and feeling the benefits of such practice. He was interested in promoting it to a broader community by participating in public demonstrations and helping with organising other events. Being involved with the Wushu & Tai Chi NSW Committee of Management gives John an opportunity to contribute to spreading knowledge and information about the ancient art of Tai Chi, Qigong and Wushu.
  • Alice Ma

    I am an advisor to the Wushu & Tai Chi NSW Committee of Management. I have only been learning and practising Tai Chi and Qigong for a short period of time and have discovered the immense health and social benefits of practising these arts. I therefore welcome any opportunity to contribute to the furthering of the practice and the growth of Wushu Council Australia through my work at the NSW State Association helping with documentation.
  • Gloria Shen, Secretary

    Originated from China, I have always had the strong sense of responsibility to promote Chinese traditional culture and sport spirit.  As Wushu and Tai Chi originally are also from China and becoming an international sport, it is my honour to act as an agent to tie people together. Acting as the secretary and a committee member in the Association, I want to dedicate my full passion to serve this association and those who are fascinated by Wushu and Tai Chi. 
  • Chuan An Mao

    Andy has been training in Wushu for many years, graduated from Beijing University with specialisation in Wushu and holds 5th Duan. When he came to Australia he joined the Wushu & Tai Chi NSW and later was elected to the Committee of Management. Serving on the Committee, participating in promotional activities and assisting with the Committee’s projects are his input into development of the sport of Wushu in Australia and NSW.
  • Katherine Raper

    What encouraged me to join the Wushu & Tai Chi NSW was working with enthusiastic members and sharing ideas with them. I have been keen to bring along and assess how to put into practice new ideas for the Committee, Wushu Herald and the Council. By being an advisor to the Committee, I have expanded my knowledge about Tai Chi, enhanced my confidence in public speaking in large groups and formed networks with knowledgeable people.
