Professor Ma Menta.

Professor Ma Menta.

Professor Ma Menta, invited to Moscow in early 90’s, demonstrated the followers of the Chinese Wushu his family Tongbei style. Abundance of schools in Moscow teaching a mixture of gymnastics and a strange kind of karate and calling that mixture Wushu surprised even the experienced master. Seeing enthusiasm and desire of Russian students to practice Tongbei, Ma Menta decided to revive one. The best masters and students - the members of the Ma clan have been to Moscow many times and held lessons according to the program Ma Shi Tongbei Ui, i.e. they used the system of preparation for the wide range of students. However only now it is possible to reveal the secrets of the family Tongbei school (Ma Ja) thoroughly hidden all these years. The famous masters from China generously share their experience and knowledge with the coaches and sportsmen.
