As a 5000 year old art, you might imagine that there is more to Kung Fu than flying through the air and kicking butt in a dark alley. Because it is a “martial” art—that is, its original development came from early warfare—it encompasses strategy, health preservation, efficient movement, strength-building, flexibility, vision, cooperation, ‘workout’ and a constant involvement of your mind. “No brain, no gain” is practically the keystone of traditional Chinese martial arts and Kung Fu.
We want to introduce you to Kung Fu, the right way, the authentic way. In this 6 week class, we’ll teach you basic moves, fundamental theories, ways to practice, and the core of this this great martial art. You’ll move in ways you have never moved before.
