I’VE LOST 30 POUNDS “I came to Kung Fu hoping for fun and a little exercise. I found that, but I also found something more, something to work for that is the most important part of Kung Fu for me — but the exercise hasn’t hurt either. I’ve lost 30 pounds since I started and I’m more fit than I’ve ever been in my life. More than that, I believe that I’m capable of more than I ever thought I was. I’ve only been coming here for a year, but I can hardly imagine my life without it.” Alexandra
I FEEL BETTER THAN I HAVE IN YEARS “Through practicing Kung Fu I am working my entire body while focusing the mind, and bringing myself to a clearer understanding of my own physical and mental health. This is far more than jogging, weight lifting or meditation would ever have accomplished for me. I feel better than I have in years, and always have something new to strive for. In this case, my personal potential is not something that I am stressed about; it is something to look forward to. I now look forward to the challenges that bring me to new heights of healthy living and personal well-being. Kung Fu is probably the best thing that I have ever put my mind and body into. Thank you for all that you have helped me to do!” Sincere Regards, Jason Colditz

Kung Fu – The Ancient Art for Today’s Professional
The first recorded movements of Kung Fu were in the Yellow Emperor’s Book on Internal Medicine in 2600 B.C. In 220 A.D., Emperor Han Wu Ti wrote the Han Shi I Wen Chi (Han Book of Arts). This book contained methods of hand fighting and 4 chapters were devoted to Kung Fu strategies. In 500 A.D., the monks from the Shaolin monastery, cataloged and perfected Kung Fu to new heights.

The monks incorporated 5 different animals for the health and self-defense system of Kung Fu. These five animals developed a different essence of man’s physical and mental abilities.

  • The Tiger – developed determination, discipline and power.
  • The Leopard – developed patience and strength.
  • The Crane – developed concentration, balance and leg strength.
  • The Snake – developed temperance, endurance and breathing.
  • The Dragon – developed alertness and flexibility.

They became famous throughout China for protecting the innocent. Later, their temple  was burned down by the Manchu’s and the monks fled south, creating pockets of resistance by showing the villagers the self-defense aspects of Kung Fu.

Because many of these villagers were businessmen, they traded with their counterparts in Okinawa and showed them some of these basic Kung Fu skills. Later these Kung Fu techniques in Okinawa became known as Karate or China Hand
techniques. Around 1917, these basic Kung Fu (Karate) movements made their way to Japan and Korea.

A Modern Curriculum for Today’s Busy Lifestyle
Today there are many terms used for martial arts that can cause confusion and maybe even provide false or misleading statements and assumptions. Don’t be fooled by this. We hear such terms as MMA, Kickboxing, Judo and many others.

Though all these different methods have a course of study, they concentrate on just one aspect of martial arts. For example, MMA is more of a sport, while Kickboxing is done as just an exercise program. Neither really teaches you self-defense or a comprehensive health strategy that uses the Internal Dynamics of Kung Fu.

Kung Fu is the oldest and most comprehensive system of martial arts; the predecessor of other methods of martial arts. In other words, Kung Fu is a complete training method for conditioning, self-defense, and life skills such as concentration, discipline and leadership. We combine four class subjects (Drills for Skills, Kickboxing, Self-Defense and Routines) to provide you with a great workout as you develop the proper techniques and skills for self-defense.
