功夫 Kung Fu
Classes are disciplined and we focus on the traditional training methods. We follow Daoist principles that encourage people to become upright, healthy and respectful members of community. We teach the arts in a way that strengthen both the body and mind. Apart from the obvious health benefits, great emphasis is placed on the practical aspects of the arts enabling students to develop essential life skills and self defense abilities. We don't re-interpret the old ways with a modern slant. The exercises are very specific to Kung Fu and there is no cross training here. Emphasis is on creating energy and being able to apply it in various contexts, these include other Martial Arts, Street situations, MMA counters, Chi Sao, and Tui Shou.
The true martial arts are external manifestations of internal essences. For new learners who aim to gain the real essences, they have to follow the structures, forms, and methods that were created based the essences by the founders many thousand years ago. Without this rigorous process, the Kungfu remains external and empty inside.
The mind controls the Qi (energy). The mind also destroys the Qi. The mind often has a tendency to wander, search and grasp for easy solutions. This overtime weakens the mind and make it scattered. By following the traditional training structure and methods, the mind is centred and able to endure hardships. The process overtime strengthens the mind to control Qi more efficiently.
