Beginner Kung Fu Classes
Many of our adult students have little or no martial arts background before training with us. However, they soon develop skills they initially thought would be difficult. Our students are eased into the rigors of martial arts training, so to develop strong self-defense and kung fu skills while achieving fitness goals, all in positive and energetic classes. We also have many focused and intent teens who have found our kung fu and kickboxing classes unique and athletically challenging. Adult students find the fitness and coordination benefits from the martial arts training is distinctive, beneficial both mentally and physically, and much more interesting then typical club style cardio work-out programs. Our students tell us that there is no other workout or sport that accomplishes so much in such an efficient way; getting fit in an interesting way and learning valuable self-defense skills at the same time!
