Chinese Kung Fu
Kung Fu, Chinese martial arts, is a cultural heritage of the Chinese people, which has been enriched through the ages. With its graceful
movements and salubrious effects on health, it has a strong appeal to a vast multitude of people.
Kung Fu has been practiced in China for thousands of years. The original of Kung Fu may be traced back to prehistoric times when our ancestors
used stones and wooden clubs in hunting. The most well-known Kung Fu classifications include: Shaolin Kung Fu, Wudang Kung Fu, Emei Kung
Fu, Northern Styles, and Southern Styles. There are hundreds of Kung Fu styles belonging to these classifications, with over one thousand bare
hand and weapon training routines.
The primary technical training includes Kicking Methods (over one hundred ways to kick using the feet, legs, knees, and hips), Striking Methods
(several hundred striking methods using fists, palms, hand hooks, elbows, head, and shoulders), Wrestling Methods (several hundred wrestling
methods to take down your opponent), Controlling (Qin Na) Methods (including misplacing the bone, cavity press, sealing the breath, and ground
control methods), and Weapon applications.
Chinese Kung Fu is more than Kung Fu. It embodies a profound philosophy and a sense of human life and social values. It is the summation of
the code of conduct for the adjustment of the relationships between man and man and between man and nature. Kung Fu is not only a way to
enhance one’s health and skills. Its long association with dance has lent an enriching artistic quality. At the same time, its emphasis on
posture, composure, self-control, spirit, and lively exercise imbues it with a beautiful effect on the physic, and a positive effect on the character.
These quality turn Kung Fu into Wuyi-martial artistry.
