Chiu Lau Kung Fu Wing Chun College

KUNG FU LIFESTYLE


Chiu Lau Kung Fu College objective is to promote a healthy and active lifestyle through the development of our students' spirit, energy and strength.

Adopting the kung fu lifestyle offers many benefits to practitioners with respect to both martial and everyday life skills.

By training consistently, attending every class and practicing at home, students will notice a transformation in their bodies, abilities, and mind. These changes may be immediate or gradual, linear or exponential, depending on the student's level of commitment to their kung fu training.

Students will notice an overall improvement in their stamina, flexibility and strength. Kung fu will enhance the overall coordination of the body, balance, footwork and agility. Students will find a boost in their everyday energy and find themselves with an increased level of fitness. Kung fu training makes us stronger physically and mentally and cultivates our chi energy internally and externally.

Kung fu can be described as action meditation. Kung fu trains the mind in unison with the body. Kung fu teaches how to think quickly, clearly and calmly to react and be decisive with our actions. Kung fu will improve overall focus, discipline and mental clarity.

Martial arts training will teach the body to react automatically in response to confrontation. This will enhance overall awareness of self, others and surroundings in order to be able to quickly assess and react as necessary to conflict.

Kung fu also provides many health benefits. The forms and exercises were designed centuries ago by our kung fu ancestors to augment the free flow of chi energy within the body. This improves our health, circulation, vitality and overall well-being. Kung fu is often described as the fountain of youth.

Wing Chun concepts are easily translated outside of self defense applications and into daily life. It shows to us how to remain balanced and relaxed throughout life -- to accept what comes and to respond in the most efficient way. The skills taught at Chiu Lau Kung Fu College demonstrate a way to overcome problems and strengthen ourselves inside and out.

Kung Fu is a way of life.
