Shao-Lin Kung Fu


Adults 18+ 


Shao-Lin, literally meaning, "Monastery in the woods of Mount Shaoshi", refers to the forests of Shaoshi mountain which is thought to have originated in the 5th century. The martial beginnings are credited to an Indian monk Bodhidharma. This legend stems from the 17th century.
 
Shaolin Kungfu and Tai Chi are similar: both involve the training of body, energy and mind. In a narrower sense, they are different. Relatively speaking, Tai Chi training method is “internally soft”,  while the Shaolin training method is “externally hard”.
 
Three levels will eventually be taught. The student will make the determination of what they can do. Two person drills, body strengthening, different types of sit ups as well as push-ups will be slowly introduced. Breathing exercise (Ba Duan Jin) will also be taught.
 
*Modifications can be made to accommodate the students physical abilities.
