Kung Fu Seminar

Students young and old embrace a way of life full of confidence, discipline and self control that enhances mind, body and spirit. This Monday seminar class is designed as an introductory exploration of Kung Fu for new students. Children will be focused on improving their strength, spontaneous reaction, hand eye coordination, and self-defense skills.  This class is also great for kids that are already in other martial arts schools because it will help them advance in their own practice outside of our program.
