Why practice Kung Fu?
Kung Fu is much more than fighting! Traditional Chinese Kung Fu contains the secrets of the Ancient Masters and offers us valuable tools in life.
Literally, Kung Fu means hard work done over a long period of time. It trains our endurance and discipline and empowers us to overcome obstacles.
What are the benefits of Kung Fu practice?
The ancient Arts train the body’s ‘Chi’ – the energy which permeates all living things and has profound effects on our health and well being. Through practice we learn to harness and effectively manage our vital energy, "Chi". This has a benefit not only for our physical body, making it more resilient and able to last longer in time, but also for our mental and psychological health.
The Shaolin Arts:
Chi Kung for Health and Longevity. ‘Chi’ (Qi) is a natural energy which pervades all things. Chi Kung is the practice of charging the body with fresh, balanced Chi, eliminating stale Chi and circulating Chi through all of the meridians and to every cell of the body.
