I could give you many reasons why you should try Internal Kung Fu. When meeting people who know how good Internal Kung Fu is we share knowledge like we have the best kept secret around.
In today’s ultra busy hypersensitive life most people struggle to switch off, we are more connected to everything around us more than ever before. Even going to the gym means for every hour running, lifting and bouncing around on a yoga ball, music blares out loud while TV screens play 24 hour news, resulting in more need to recover.
In 2015 my best friend committed suicide, he had struggled with depression for most of his life and he checked out at just 45 years old. I knew that he really didn’t do any exercise and spent much of his free time indoors at a computer playing games. Another thing that my friend often did was to cut back on groceries, he was a bit of a tight bastard and often lived off very basic meals which you or I might only treat as a snack. I too struggle with good and bad days, finding myself at a loose end and no motivation. Even though I have multiple training methods that can change this cycle of negative energy, sometimes it can be difficult to break. One thing I know for sure is, if I start training, whether it’s Baguazhang, Taiji or Xingyiquan, I would immediately start to feel better. Internal kung fu is an undoubtedly superior method for improving your mental health.
I strongly feel that getting exercise and maintaining a healthy diet can improve your life for the better. If you choose Internal Kung Fu you can be sure to see gains faster than any other physical activity. This is partly because Internal Kung Fu is as much a mental journey as it is a physical one. You can check one of my other posts on how physical exercise can helps us with improving mood and increasing memory formation: Improve your mental health.
I wish that I could have convinced my friend to change his ways and that I could convince more people to try Internal Kung Fu. However, I generally only see people who already know a lot about kung fu in my kung fu lessons held in Bath. It doesn’t have to be this way, the kung fu lessons would suit absolutely anyone.
In a Kung Fu World
Men and women of all shapes and sizes, young or old can take advantage of the traditional kung fu that I teach. Generally each and every person who can gauge how they want to train. You can train hard and push yourself mentally and physically, or you can do everything lighter and still make gains.
There are many two person practise drills that build strength, timing, coordination and cooperation, which leads into fighting application and sparring quite well. Also, there is undoubtedly a positive psychological element to physical touch from a fellow student.
There are many benefits of joining Internal Kung Fu lessons with me in Bath, contact me and I can arrange for you to join us Mondays and Thursdays every week.
