The term Kung Fu refers to the martial arts of China. Kung Fu originated in a place called the Shaolin Temple, where monks practiced Kung Fu for health and self-defence during their quest for enlightenment.

Although being fighting styles, Kung Fu advocates virtue and peace, not aggression or violence. This has been the common value upheld by martial artists from generation to generation. With a number of movement sets, boxing styles, weapon skills and some fighting stunts, Kung Fu keeps its original function of self-defense. Now its value in body-building and fitness is also highly appreciated.

In this Kung-Fu course is run in partnership with Barry Phelan of Wugong Academy you will learn how to focus physically and mentally, how to improve physical and mental strength and how learning forms and how to defend yourself can be fun.
