Welcome to Daido Academy!
Founded in 2004, the school has been performing Wushu and Chinese dance all across Ottawa at events such as the Tulip Festival, Winterlude, and Music & Beyond. Our teachers and students also tirelessly volunteer at multicultural events during festive seasons such as the Autumn Festival and Chinese New Years. Their dedication to community service and the arts is the reason why our school has been a leader in the Chinese community for over a decade.
I first joined Daido after returning to Ottawa from my studies at McGill University in 2009 under the invitation of Sifu John Hum. Can you believe that my first wushu class had only 4 students? From humble beginnings I helped build our wushu team to a roster of over 30 students and still growing!
It was with great honour and pride that I took over Daido Academy’s helm as its Principal in 2012. Past-Principals Trench Tai and Shiyu Reynolds have set a high standard of excellence to which I continue to aim to achieve for our students and our school.
I look forward to the journey we take together in our aspirations to learn and practice Chinese martial arts and dance. Through our hard work and dedication, we can build strong bodies and minds with which we can further strengthen the community around us.
May 2014 bring much joy and good health to all,
Principal of Daido Academy
