What is Kung Fu?

Kung Fu is not one style, there are hundreds of Kung Fu styles, such as monkey, tiger-crane, praying mantis, wing chun, tai chi, baji quan, bagua quan, plus many more, each with their own combat emphasis. Kung Fu classes are characterised by self defence tactics which utilise the energy of an attacker by using grapples, throws, kicks, punches, and weapons.

Regular Kung Fu training improves flexibility, strength, balance, coordination, speed and endurance as well as increasing overall cardiovascular fitness and toning.
