The IWA was set up in accordance with the official Chinese Wushu association’s guidelines and was granted Recognised Governing Body status for Chinese Wushu Duanwei system in Ireland on the 25th Dec 2014.
Its Constitution sets out the Organisational make up and management structure, with an elected Executive and Management Committee who are directly responsible to its members via a Member committee which meet at least once a year at an Annual General Meeting (AGM).
We invite all Associations/Clubs and individuals to take part of the Chinese Wushu Duan System for overseas practitioners.
We would also like to extend an invitation to you to join the ‘family’ of organisations already represented and become a full member of your sports, Governing Body.
