Classes are typically around two hours long, and are usually of mixed ability, ages, and sexes. They begin with a warm up, which will include various cardiovascular exercises, followed by specific stretching and body conditioning.
Training then moves onto learning kung fu techniques. Being a broad based style we incorporate a variety of different methods. Our instructors will teach specific things which are relevant to the class. This could be paired pad work, learning how to use one of the traditional weapons, or even basic locks and throws.
Our training is done in a way that each class provides a steady and continuous progression to help students master the basics of a technique then learn to add other dynamics such as footwork or additional techniques.
Towards the end of the class students break into smaller groups to practice specific techniques relevant to their level of ability.
Training sessions conclude with a cool down session to slow the heart rate, and prevent stiffness in joints and muscles.
