Janice Hung, at a very tender age of 7, decided to be different. Where kids her age would rather play Janice dedicated many years of her life in Wushu. She has painstakingly mastered the art even if there were people in her life that were against her newly found passion.
Of course, not everything was about Wushu, Janice had to balance her time between studies and her training. Talking to Janice, you would hear a very intelligent person, an achiever who knows what she wants and get it too! A college beauty queen, she excelled in academics and in various extra-curricular activities such as basketball, volleyball and track and field. Because of her athletic excellence, she was given full academic scholarship at The University of Santo Tomas.
Spending 30 hours every week at the gym, intensely practicing the elegant and powerful techniques of Wushu, specifically Taiji, Janice’s hardships paid off. At the age of 16, she was chosen to take part in the Philippine Wushu Team. From 1999 until 2007, she participated in different kinds of events such as Chang Quan, Swordplay, Spearplay, Tai Ji Quan and Taiji sword and consistently won the gold medals in the National Wushu Championships. She also won a Gold medal for freestyle Tai Ji Quan - 1st Invitational Wushu competition which was held in Huangshan, China in 2007. Janice also represented the Philippines in the 21st SEA GAMES in Malaysia in 2001, the 14th Asian Games in Busan, Korea in 2002 and other international competitions where she consistently won medals for the country.
For the Janice Hung fans, seeing her every move, every sway of the sword (which bring us fans into the edge of our seats with awe and amazement), this is the thrill we so closely enjoy watching Janice Hung, an indomitable spirit, the consummate athlete ….. and yes, we can’t help but also admire the beauty that is Janice.
She was born in a middle-class Chinese family in the early 80’s in downtown Manila. Even when she was just a kid Janice was never a typical girl. She’s a girl that knows what she wants and she makes things happen.
Because of the discipline Janice acquired from her years of martial arts training, she has excelled in all endeavours she has put her hands in. She became the driving force between two books on Wu Shu, named Tai Ji Quan and Tai Ji Jian. The books were authored by her coach and master, Dr. Yu from Beijing Sports University. Janice promotes these books with the main objective of bringing the benefits of great discipline and culture derived from ancient Chinese wisdom to and for the average Filipino.
A successful advertising model, she has endorsed several international and local brands like Chevron, Accel, Cream Silk Shampoo, Mc Donald’s , and Nescafe. She also handled the Kung Fu Panda Campaign.
Recently, Janice went into acting landing a role in the TV series called Rounin. This was followed by Kung Fu Kids and Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo.Proactively Committed, Creatively Responsive
