KUNG FU

kung-fu---Individ-pg
Kung Fu is a Chinese martial art which stresses conditioning, flexibility and self-defense techniques. In Kung Fu various stances, kicks, and strikes are practiced and later added with forms that introduce coordination through proper stances, stepping, kicking, striking and blocking.

In Kung Fu, as students advance their coordination, fighting and self-defense habits improve. Students develop more fluid reactions and techniques which they may practice in advanced bare hand weapon and two-person forms.

A TYPICAL CLASS
Students bow to the flag and show proper respect to their instructors. After meditation, stretching, and warm-up exercises the actual class usually begins with a group practice of forms. Students generally pair off and practice two-man drills, switching partners periodically. Students will work with partners primarily on hand techniques. During drills there are usually breaks for discussion and demonstration. Before class is concluded, students review techniques learned and then have a cool down period.
