Chinese Gung Fu
(Kids through Adults)
Gung Fu, a Chinese martial art that dates back over thousands of years, is an excellent form of exercise for the body, mind and spirit. It will improve your flexibility, tone and grace, as well as strengthen your external and internal self. The proper execution of Gung Fu is learned through practice, concentration and repetition. Students who practice and persevere in the study of Gung Fu will show improvements in both their physical and mental health. At Black Tiger Academy, students are taught styles in both the southern Chinese (Black Tiger) and northern Chinese (White Crane).
