Class Structure

Classes are typically around two hours long, and are usually of mixed ability, ages, and sexes. They begin with a warm up of stretching and gentle exercise and become progressively more vigorous and strenuous.

Training then moves to learning Kung Fu techniques. Instructors will demonstrate a technique, explaining the key technical points, then ask students to copy and practice it – either in the air, or in pairs using focus pads.

Each class is designed to get progressively more difficult 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 syllabus groups to practice specific techniques with other students of the same level of ability.

Training sessions conclude with a cool down session to slow the heart rate, and prevent stiffness in joints and muscles.
