Why Kung Fu Classes with the Jade Dragon School?

If you’ve read the article on what is kung fu you’ll have seen that there are very few real, traditional schools left anywhere in the world. This is one of them.

In our kung fu classes for adults everything can still be learned and trained as it was centuries ago. Nothing is taught here that can’t be used in real combat. Every single movement in every single form is applicable with real, whole-body power. Nothing is held back. This is incredibly rare.

  • Study under a master with nearly 40 years experience
  • Learn 8 animal styles properly with all their training methods, forms and fighting skills
  • Expert tuition that focuses on the specifics of how to gain maximum power effortlessly. Most schools just focus on basic physical training or telling you to go harder and faster
  • Learn a range of weapons to strengthen the body in different ways
  • Train your body, mind and breath using old methods that give you a strong supple body that won’t deteriorate as you age.
  • Adult only classes – no children to distract from training
