Adult Karate Stone Mountain Georgia
Kung fu is the grandfather of Karate. Karate began as a common fighting system known as te (Okinawan: ti) among the Pechin class of the Ryukyuans. After trade relationships were established with the Ming dynasty of China by King Satto of Chuzan in 1372, some forms of Chinese martial arts were introduced to the Ryukyu Islands by the visitors from China, particularly Fujian Province. A large group of Chinese families moved to Okinawa around 1392 for the purpose of cultural exchange, where they established the community of Kumemura and shared their knowledge of a wide variety of Chinese arts and sciences, including the Chinese martial arts (Information derived from wikipedia).
Our Kung fu class is based on traditional Shaolin teachings and methods, but designed to be fun and also to contain a great workout. The class incorporates basic flexibility training, a cardiovascular workout, self-defense, and will help to increase your speed and coordination. It's a great way to get fit and focused, and increase your self-confidence. We strive to help you develop physically and mentally, offering not just physical fitness, but also a sense of well being and community. Adult Martial Arts classes are kept separate from the kids classes.
At the school, you will find supportive instructors and senior students ready to welcome you into our class. Our instructors are specially picked by Master Liu based on their skills and their ability to teach. We are very proud of the environment at our school, in which everyone is supportive and we all help each other to learn and progress together in our training.
The Martial Arts curriculum starts with many open hand forms and basic simple self defense techniques. As you progress, the forms and defense techniques become a bit more complex, but they build upon the basic foundation of the early movements. Eventually the student will progress onto weapons and weapon fighting sets, such as the staff, broadsword, straight sword, spear and even more. Since the Shaolin temple was a "university" of martial arts, there are innumerable techniques and weapons contained in this system for our students to become proficient in.
