YOUR FIRST CLASS
Beginners are very welcome but we understand that your first class can be a little intimidating, so here is a little of what to expect at your first class and what to wear and bring with you.
Please wear a plain T-Shirt and loose pants (to allow freedom of movement).
For safety please ensure all jewellery is removed before class.
It is also advisable to bring some water and a hand towel.
Attitude In Class
Have fun, there is lots to learn and all student's learn from each other. We don't expect you to get everything straight away.
Please be respectful to each other; listen to instructions, sit to allow others to see, hold pads for your training partner like they hold them for you.
We encourage you to work hard and push yourself, but also to work to your own abilities. You will get back what you put in.
A Typical Class
As a broad style of kung fu our classes will vary a lot in content, but a typical class will look something like this:
A warm up, including cardio, dynamic stretching, strength and balance work. Work to your own ability.
Striking technique practice including kicks and punches. We mix using pads, heavy pads and shadow strikes
Traditional training sequences, two person or individual forms.
Sparring drills to develop timing, distancing and movement
Qi Gong practice which looks at breathing and movement.
