Current Kung-Fu Classes

 

Beginning Kung-Fu
This is an introductory class that teaches authentic and traditional Northern Shaolin kung-fu. Students learn the fundamentals of kung-fu, including basic stances, punches,
kicks, conditioning, classical form and self-defense. This class is open to all fitness levels and adults of all ages (16 years-old and up).


Kung-fu classes are 2 hours long. Each class includes 30 minutes of yogic stretching.

 

The special Drills & Conditioning classes are expanded to 2-1/2 hours long, and include greater emphasis on developing endurance, strength, flexibility and punching/kicking training.

 

Open Floor
For kung-fu and Tai Chi students of all levels to practice under instructor supervision. This 1, 2, or 3-hour period allows students to work on forms, train on their own, and receive one-to-one instruction.

 

Private Instruction - By Appointment
1-hour sessions with the Chief Instructor tailored to fit the student's goals. This is a good way to polish what's been studied in class, learn a new form in greater detail, work on techniques and application, or correct problem areas. Private instruction is also good for those who prefer a one-to-one basis for learning. Students are expected to stretch or warm up before the actual session, providing more time for individual instruction.
