What is taught in a typical Kung Fu Class?
Kung Fu training involves learning strategic self defense, exercise, lots of stretching for flexibility, and learning forms. Self defense is practiced individually and with partners in non-aggressive sparring. Our goal is to pass on this beautiful art form in a healthy and safe environment, which makes kung fu a great place to start in martial arts for kids, teens, and adults. Alongside self defense and sparring, you will learn forms which combine the skills learned at any belt level into a series of planned movements.
Learning Self Defense and Kung Fu in West Hartford, CT
Kung Fu is a Chinese martial art that we offer at Plus One Defense Systems in West Hartford, CT. You may have also seen it written as kungfu, gong fu, or gung fu. All are correct, as the names are actually the transliteration of the Chinese 功夫. An interesting fact about the term “kung fu” is that it can also refer to any persistent, dedicated acquisition of skill through hard work!
