Loss of muscle mass, strength and flexibility

Loss of muscle mass, strength and flexibility occurs naturally in the body after the age of 35. The fact is that when you lose muscle you gain weight, even if you are eating well. Health experts recommend that you engage in some form of training that focuses on all major muscle groups a minimum of 2 times per week and up to 5 times per week depending upon your fitness goals. Kung fu, with its full body training, provides a perfect solution to prevent muscle loss and regain your strength and flexibility. Don't give into age and the losses of muscle and fitness that are associated with it. You may not be able to turn the clock back to 20 but you can take where you are right now and improve upon it and become stronger, more fit and start feeling better than you did in years.

Our style of Kung Fu does not have any performance gymnastics in it. It is an authentic style originally designed for adults of all ages to help build greater strength, better health and competent skills which you can actually use for self defense.

Holiday Schedule

The school will be OPEN on Wednesday July 4th.

The school will be closed on Saturday July 7th and Monday July 9th.

We will hold a Kung Fu make up class on Tuesday July 10th at 7PM for All level Kung Fu Students.

Happy 4th of July

Hot Tea in The Summer

Hot tea in the summer --- it cools you down

This may sound like the biggest paradox: ice actually triggers your body to heat up.

When we drink cold water in the summer, our bodies have to compensate for the difference in temperature by heating up more, which leads to even more overheating.

Drinking warm tea allows the body to relax, calm down, and cool itself down to a normal homeostatic temperature (equilibrium) without needing to compensate for the difference in temperature.

A Leader

"A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way."

Being Consistent

A consistent student who comes to class regularly and puts in the right amount of effort into training and, as a result, triggers: Dopamine, Serotonin, Oxytocin, and Endorphins, otherwise known as the body's natural "Happy Chemicals," may truly be sourcing Health and Happiness into their life style as a result of their training! 

Your Biggest Challenge

"Your biggest challenge isn't someone else.

It's the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs,

and the voice inside you that yells "CAN'T," but you don't listen.

YOU JUST PUSH HARDER.

And then you hear the voice whisper "CAN."

And you discover that the person you thought you were

is no match for the one you really are."

Congratulations to all Kung Fu Graduates
