We will accept new members from September 14th until end of October 2020.
Our school has been operating since 1991.
A training program is based on Chinese culture, traditions and system of teaching. Its not just about fighting, its way of life, it combines both spiritual and physical.
Regardless of your initial intention: you may want to get in shape, you may prefer to participate in training as a way of meditating through movement, you can pick some self-defense course or internal mind and body training. Whatever your preference may be, that’s all included in the traditional way of training.
You can meet new friends, people of the same mindset and develop your social skills, as classes are mixed. And we organize social events where you can meet people from other groups of the kung-fu school.
What you can expect from Tai Chi Chuan training?
Healthy body and mind, energy, happines and focused mind flow.
Even that Tai Chi is complet kung-fu system and includes fighting, we are in first part of training more concentrated on health side of Tai Chi. Thats because most of the people who come to train today have some issues – shortened tendons, back pain, weak muscles, poor body coordination and stability. So firstly we work on corrections of body problems. Plus you start to learn Tai Chi Chuan form which teaches you basic movements and techniques. This part of training also incudes basic exercises with internal energy.
After some period of time you start to add more components into your training – partner training, self healing exercises, weapons training etc. and voluntarily self-defense/fighting.
Note: If you are interested primarily in self-defense and intensive body training you may check our Hung Kuen Kung-fu classes.
What you can expect from Hung Kuen training?
Blood, sweat and tears. Plus FUN.
Hung Kuen is a complete kung-fu system and it mainly relies on a strong body and powerful techniques. So, the entire training is aimed to support and develop those areas.
You will learn proper postures which not only support your body during exercising techniques but also create strong lower body foundations (legs and hips). Techniques – such as strikes, kicks, throws, locks – create strong arms, shoulders and torso and create good connections between the lower and upper part of your body.
Some additional exercises will develop mainly strengthen your tendons and some your whole body.
Forms provide coordination and stability and start your self-defense training which will be developed during partner training.
Hung Kuen training is definitely not easy but creates a base for a lifetime development, as you can improve and perfect your skills, not only while young, but during the entire course of your life.
Even better than attempting to get your answers by reading this page twice is to give Hung Kuen training a try and you will feel and see what a proper hard kung-fu training stands for.
And if you intend to dive into all a little deeper, you can also be a member of our Lion Dance group. This is a voluntary addition to the Hung Kuen training.
Note: If you are interested primarily in health and internal body and mind training you may check our Tai Chi classes.
