Benefits of Kung Fu Training

Kung Fu training, or Wushu (武术), has numerous health benefits which include overall improvement of physical condition of the body as well as benefiting emotional and mental states of those who practice it regularly. Below are some of the key benefits of Kung Fu training.

Physical Fitness – Kung Fu helps develop both strength and flexibility, unlike many other workouts which focus on either strength or flexibility. Repeated practice of kicks, punches, and pivots of the hips stretch the entire body and develop flexibility while increasing strength at the same time. Kung Fu training also involve special stretching techniques to increase flexibility in various muscle groups in the body. Health benefits may include lowering blood pressure, increasing blood circulation, strengthening the immune system and improving sleep quality.

Better Concentration – Wushu comes from a tradition that requires intense focus. Students will learn how to perform exercises designed not only to improve their bodies but their minds at the same time.

Self-Defense Skills – Our Kung Fu classes aim to teach a child how to effectively protect themselves in the event of an attack, which does much more than just teach them how to punch and kick hard. Self-defense skills help keep our body and mind strong.

Sense of Community – Our team is like a big family. Through Kung Fu training as a group, we build trust and friendship among peers and with Masters.

Improved Confidence – Students attain a sense of confidence through improving mental and physical skills. We also teach students how to handle hostile situations.

Self-Expression – Wushu is an art that allows for the highest possibilities of self-expression since it combines grace and beauty with power and acrobatics.

Self-Discipline – Kung fu training helps young people learn how to deal with frustration and work toward a specific goal.

Stress Relief – Kung Fu training can ease tension, strengthen your body and help blood circulation. Frequent practice may alleviate depression and anxiety and improves the mood.

Have Fun! – Last but not the least, learning Kung Fu can be an interesting experience. Our Kung Fu classes are designed so that everyone has fun!
