KUNG FU LIFESTYLE
The objective of Chiu Lau Kung Fu College 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 arts and everyday life skills.
By training consistently in class and at home, students will notice a transformation in their bodies, abilities, and minds. These changes may be immediate or gradual, linear, or exponential, depending on the student’s level of commitment.
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. Training improves our physical and mental strength and cultivates our internal and external Chi energy. Students will gain a boost in their everyday energy and obtain an increased level of fitness.
Kung Fu can be described as action meditation. Kung Fu trains the mind in unison with the body. It teaches how to think quickly, clearly, and calmly to react and be decisive with our actions. Kung Fu improves overall focus, discipline, and mental clarity.
Martial arts training teaches the body to react automatically in response to confrontation. This enhances overall awareness of self, others, and surroundings to be able to quickly assess and react as necessary to conflict.
Kung Fu also provides great 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, improving 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-defence 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
