Shaolin Hung Mei Kung Fu offers a comprehensive system of traditional martial practices intended to cultivate the defense skills, health, character and spiritual development of its students. As when studying any discipline based art such as a musical instrument, painting, another sport and so on, students must first learn the basic techniques. For example, a student of violin must learn how to finger the strings and use the bow before learning how to play a complete song.
New students of Shaolin Hung Mei Kung Fu will first be taught how to execute basic techniques, the most important of which are stances such as Zuò Mă (坐馬), Qián Mă (前馬), and others. In addition, these students will be taught how to properly execute punching, kicking, blocking and more in isolation as well as in combinations. Later in the semester, students will put these techniques together in longer sequences or combinations.
Returning students - those who have already participated in the Bohua Kung Fu class and have been shown the basic methods - will continue to build upon what they have been taught in past semesters and be instructed in not only more complex sequences but paired exercises. Learning paired exercises helps members develop a deeper understanding of the “martial intention” of each technique.
Most importantly, we hope to help our students develop what we refer to as “martial spirit” – the spirit of confidence without arrogance, a spirit which they can apply to every other aspect of their lives. We can only achieve these goals with your help. As in any study of any kind, developing new skills requires practice. We will only see the students for about 55 minutes once per week for a few weeks before a break… and then for another few weeks before yet another break and so on. With your help, encouraging more consistent practice, we will have a much greater chance of achieving our goals.
The Bohua Kung Fu class is open to all willing students from age 8 and up and including middle and high schoolers as well as adults/parents. For additional information concerning Shaolin Hung Mei Kung Fu, please see www.shaolinhungmei.org.
