Learn Kung Fu in Bath

Mondays & Thursdays 7:30pm - 9:00pm

OUR KUNG FU LESSONS

A kung fu group limited to 8 people, which is a great opportunity to get more direction and 1 on 1 time with the teacher.

1 on 1 tuition is still available, but must be book well in advance to avoid disapointment, book a 1 on 1 lesson here.

The kung fu classes focus on upgrading one's skill and teaches aspects of the three Internal Kung Fu systems Taijiquan, BaguazhangXingyiquan.

THE WAY OF THE DRAGON

Our kung fu classes will suit people that are interested in traditional kung fu and those looking for a new way to work on improving movement and health. Kung Fu will help you to become more disciplined both physically and mentally. While we offer complete systems of both Xingyi and Bagua you will also learn various drills and exercises associated with traditional Chinese Kung Fu and Chinese health systems.

The nature of these internal arts is very challenging and will test you both physically and mentally. Ultimately learning kung fu should give you a new sense of mindfulness and strength.

KEEPING KUNG FU REAL THROUGH INTERNAL ARTS.

Martial Drills.

Unite the body and mind whilst conditioning muscles and tendons. From warming up to issuing power, stepping, striking, and throwing drills.

Kung Fu Forms.

With strong ties to fighting application - taking on the forms of Taiji, Bagua and Xingyi is quite the challenge, but, eventually becomes a truly rewarding journey.

Breathing Methods.

Breathe like you've never breathed before, with dedicated exercises that help to train the internal organs.

Fighting Applications.

Fighting methods taught range from quite elaborate traditional applications to contemporary, practical direct attacks.

Internal kung fu doesn't rely on hard (external) methods to develop physical strength or use brute strength to overcome opponents, however, do not think of Internal Kung Fu as easy or soft, the training can be strenuous and quite exhausting. I have often been told how surprised a student was with the amount of effort it took to complete the exercises, when considering how little they were doing.

When practising Internal Kung Fu you spend a lot of your time working on coordination, control, focusing the mind and breathing.

Internal Kung Fu is extremely challenging and usually attracts people with a good foundation in martial arts.

Taiji, Bagua and Xingyi are much more than exercise or fighting, they can affect your entire life. Through practising internal kung fu one can develop many varied skills and improve health of the mind and body.
