Our martial arts focus is on the practice of Tien Shan Pai, a style of traditional Kung Fu originating from the mountains of northwestern China. It is well-known as an effective fighting style, but also includes graceful empty-hand and weapons forms. Attending Kung Fu class provides you a workout with a purpose. It relieves stress, improves the mind-body balance, increases confidence and self-defense skills, all while improving overall physical health.
We also place a strong emphasis on Tai Chi (Tai Ji Quan). Tai Chi is a Chinese martial art focusing on internal and external well-being. Also known as moving meditation, Tai Chi combines meditative practices with full-body coordination. An excellent practice for a variety of life-changing benefits such as stress-relief, improved balance, and greater vitality.
To complement any Kung Fu or Tai Chi class chosen, we also provide guided meditation. Meditation is an important part of the mind-body connection and a great way to relieve stress. It will improve your Kung Fu or Tai Chi practice as well.
