Shao lin ( 5 Animal Style)
This Kung Fu system utilizes the characteristics of the
Leopard, Tiger, Dragon, Crane, and Snake to defend against
an attack. In Kung Fu, footwork and body movement is used
to evade and flank against an opponents advances before, or
while countering, as opposed to meeting the attack head on.
Learning the characteristics and strategies of each of the 5
animals develops a well-rounded student who can draw on a
deep knowledge base to respond to a defense situation.
Our Su Lum Fa Kung Fu is taught through our After School
Program and through our evening classes. Lessons are age
appropriate, and seperate for both children and adults.
Wing Chun is a very dynamic, concept-based, Chinese
martial art that puts great emphasis on balance,
structure, and sensitivity. Trapping techniques, kicks,
and punches are directed toward the center line of the
opponents body, while maintaining a forward push.
Wing Chun concepts are taught through our evening
classes as a subsystem of our Kung Fu class. Learning in
this fashion creates a student that learns the good
foundations of Wing Chun, while giving them both the
opportunity and permission to "break the rules" of Wing
Chun when appropriate, by using the flanking, non-linear
movements of our 5 Animal Kung Fu.
