If you didn’t know about his impressive sideline in martial arts, this may come as quite a shock—but Lucas has been competing at this top level for years, winning multiple medals at championships across the world. It’s all part of his commitment to a healthy lifestyle, and it keeps him in top condition when faced with the rigors of his touring schedule.
Lucas will participate as part of the Hong Ying International Pro-Team, and will travel with his coach Mark. He will participate in three tai chi sections and three kung fu sections including Straight-Sword, Fan and Bo-Staff, showing his versatility across both disciplines.
At the 2013 Championship, Lucas won an impressive haul of medals:
Gold: Two Man Kung Fu set
Gold: Kung Fu Staff Form
Gold: Kung Fu Broadsword Form
Gold: Kung Fu Hand Form
Silver: Kung Fu Animal Form
Lucas is honoured to be a part of this world-famous, prestigious tournament once again in which over 10,000 people take part from across the globe.
