What’s the training like?
Being a junior class the level of discipline exceeds that of the adult class to help teach honourable values that we hope will transfer to home and school life. Whilst we want the juniors to enjoy themselves we adopt a reward through achievement policy of encouragement. As well as physical and mental training we also concentrate on enriching the soul through spiritual self awareness.
How is the sessions structured?
Each Kung Fu Training session is individual. The session starts with warming up and stretching, followed by kick drills.
The second section of the session is devoted to drilling Kung-Fu techniques as a group. The emphasis in this section is to learn all the subtle nuisances and details of the numerous move while building core strength though solid low stance work.
The third section varies between forms (patterns) and Combat training. Form training can include basic weapons (Staff/Bo, Fan) or it may be free hand forms including; Shaolin 5 Animals, Wing Chun, Hong Quan and Child Kung-Fu.
Combat Training for juniors is provided at basic safe levels with protection and in a controlled fashion where students are only permitted to spar once they have demonstrated self control and physical restraint.
At the end of each session basic breathing exercises are used to encourage chi energy development combined with simple meditations. Often a traditional Chinese story is told where the juniors are asked to extrapolate the underlying meanings and metaphors within.
What do I need to bring to my first FREE Lesson?
