About Me

Tiffany began training wushu in 2001. Initially inspired by kung-fu movies and martial arts related anime, she has since won numerous All-Around Grand Championships and made the national US Wushu Team in 2005, 2007 and 2011. Tiffany has also been featured on the cover of Inside Kung-Fu magazine (December 2006 issue) and on an Animal Planet special demonstrating wushu. A magna cum laude graduate of UCLA, Tiffany’s previous passion was dance (hip hop, Philippine cultural dancing, and ballet).  In her free time, Tiffany still enjoys dancing, shopping, snowboarding, karaoke and playing video games. She is also a member of the Zero Gravity stunt team and recently starred in the team’s first full length feature entitled Yeah Sure Okay. Tiffany currently trains under Coach Ding Wei in Fremont, CA, and she intends to keep practicing wushu in some form or another for the rest of her life.
