Confidence Training

"Experts believe that a person's confidence level is purely "mental."

Kung Fu training is confidence training. When confidence falters, your training will pick you right up with high-energy classes and class achievements.

Kung Fu teaches us to start a new, to learn from the mistakes of the past and focus on the achievements of the future."

weekly workouts

Kung Fu GroupHow often should you work out each week?

Your magic number of days depends on how active you already are.

You will probably see results from one day a week if you don't already work out at all. But if you're used to multiple workout days a week then, in general, four to five days a week will challenge your body enough to stay at peak form and make progress.

Kung Fu & Tai Chi Improves Memory

According to memory experts, a major cause of poor memory is inattentiveness.

Memory improves when proper attentiveness is achieved.

In Kung Fu & Tai Chi memory is challenged by a large number of concepts and intricate movements.

Because the practitioner is highly attentive during class and practice, memory for movement improve noticeably.

Movement Generates Happiness

More movement generally contributes to greater happiness. If people exercised for at least 30 minutes on most days, which is the standard American and European recommendation for good health, Dr. Chen says, they were about 30 percent more likely to consider themselves happy than people who did not meet the guidelines.

“I think the indications are strong that exercise can contribute to happiness and, while anything helps, a bit more is probably better,” she says.   - NY Times

Be Stronger than your excuses

It's easy to make excuses to skip a class.

But remember what happens when you overcome those excuses: You get closer to a happier, healthier, fitter you. A year from now, do you want to be in the same place, or do you want to be able to look back on how far you've come?

Every time you overcome an excuse, you're one step closer to your goal!

Summer Tips

You should drink half an ounce of water for every pound you weigh.

If you are normally active, it can actually be harmful to your body to take a hiatus from your workouts over the summer.

life is all about balance and eating right a majority of the time. The key is knowing when to allow yourself a treat and when to find the healthy alternative to common summer foods.

Don't forget about your goals because when fall comes around you don't want to be regretting three months of slacking.

Stay on track with your health!

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.
