What is Kid's Kung Fu?
Kid’s Kung Fu is a versatile tool for developing a child’s flexibility, stamina, focus and proprioception. These goals are pursued in a relaxed but disciplined environment for kids ranging between the ages of 5-12 years.
Kung Fu literally means ‘time & energy’. As it takes a lot of time to master anything worthwhile, it is a good foundation for children to build their perseverance for later stages of life. The option for competing in forms and sparring will only be available once a student has achieved a certain level. It is imperative to set a good foundation before attempting competitions; otherwise their self confidence might be hindered.
The exercises and techniques are aimed at self development and self discipline. Naturally a child with this experience and understanding will be able to develop into a prominent martial artist with the capabilities to defend him/herself. The main goal of the training is not to develop a fighting mentality at such a young age but rather to develop their personal characteristics with an understanding of the martial moralities which include respect, righteousness, humility, trust and loyalty which are the moralities of deed and then will, endurance, perseverance, patience and courage which are the moralities of mind.
Kid's Kung Fu is an all around tool for maintaining and developing strong minds and healthy bodies for the children of today.
