Kung Fu

The ideal exercise for women

  • Are you looking for an activity that covers all the bases of fitness, health and self defence?
  • Are you worried that your size or age or physical fitness level may stop you from learning such an extraordinary art?

Welcome to Jade Dragon Kung Fu. Here’s what you can learn

  • Functional fitness – everything revolves around use of the whole body to create flowing, powerful movements.
  • Weapons training – everyone loves the feel of weapons training. They teach you to move with truly relaxed power.
  • Powerful self defence skills to keep you safe so you can step out with confidence.
  • Learn to move and fight in the style of eight animals. Release your inner beast and move with fluid power.
  • How to stay calm and relaxed under pressure – this is perhaps the most important lesson of all.

What makes us different

  • Less rigid structure with lots of experimentation
  • Fun, friendly welcoming classes
  • Expert tuition that focuses on the specifics of how to gain maximum power effortlessly. We use the tried and tested principles of tai chi. Most schools just focus on basic physical training or telling you to go harder and faster
  • No children under 16 to distract you
  • Very comprehensive syllabus. Includes all types of physical training, weapons skills, pressure points, locks, blocks, kicks, throws, strikes etc done in a huge number of ways.

Our school is more like a group of friends getting together to learn and train rather than the strict discipline of a martial arts school. It’s a more enjoyable atmosphere and so much more fun than a gym.

The benefits of each animal style

Monkey – Agility, core strength, close in striking and locking skills. The most fun animal to train.

Tiger – Strength that flows through your body, move like a cat. The movements are simple but with awesome whole-body power.

Leopard – Speed, ferocity, lightness. The best style for taking on multiple attackers.

Mantis – Fast reflexes, use of every part of the body, learn all the pressure points. The ultimate, most terrifying style for close in fighting.

Eagle – Awareness, powerful defensive wing moves, ripping talons, the best defence of all the animals. Become sensitive to your environment and react to threats instantly.
