Have you ever been at a weird point where you had to fight not to do a move on someone...like you can actually feel your body wanting to and a part of you wanting to?..And have you ever sparred with someone and you felt like you could sense there moves or look into there eyes and actually see them ..or know what they are about to do before the first punch or kick is even thrown?

The Curriculum

Underlying Principles

Kung Fu is a martial art that enables students of all ages and abilities to improve their physical health and mental well being. Training is individualized to the person because each has a different body type, different physical abilities, and different training goals. The training program promotes self-discipline, self-confidence and overall character development, including the development of a positive self-image. Exercises increase cardiovascular health, relieve tension and strengthen the body. Kung Fu or more correctly Chinese Energy Boxing skills do not deteriorate with age. Many Kung Fu artists are formidable well into the eighties. Chinese Energy Boxing principles are based on the development of internal energy and do not rely on mere muscle, strength and speed. Internal energy may be developed and used effectively throughout one's life.

Methods of Instruction

* Lesson plans are developed for each session by the Instructor or Sifu,
* Students are evaluated with strengths and areas of improvement being identified,
* Each student is given exercises or practice assignments based upon his/her needs,
* Requirements for moving from each rank to the next succeeding rank are provided in writing to the students,
* Rank tests are held when the Sifu determines that students are ready to advance,
* A written list of all significant information is provided at the appropriate time to the student,
* Physical practice and demonstration of the skills are implemented as determined by Sifu,
* Practice at home is essential for the student to develop to his/her full potential,
* Competition in tournaments is optional, but does allow the student to experience various forms of martial arts,
* Sparring is optional.Read more...Collapse )
