Wushu
This class consists of authentic modern & traditional Wushu training. Wushu, also known as kung-fu or chinese martial arts, is one of the most demanding martial arts and has found a place in current mainstream movies. Wushu is a high cardio workout with extreme emphasis on stretching & body conditioning. Training is compared to gymnastics as sequences of basic skills & combos are taught as with various techniques in aerial & ground movements. International competition routines (govern by the IWuF) are also practiced including empty-hand & weapon-play often performed individually. Wushu remains to be identified as the most visually graceful yet powerful martial art for all ages.
Tae Kwon Do
Taekwondo is a Korean martial art signaturized by its accurately swift kicking and punching techniques. Taekwondo classes consists of both offensive & defensive techinques, also jumping, blocking, and sparring. Taekwondo also shares ideology from Chinese philsophy and history. The physical training and mastery of the techniques brings confidence in oneself and is often coupled with understanding of the deep philosophical and cultural significance of its practice.

Tai Ji Quan
A very popular class practiced by both young and old, Tai Chi is considered to be an intergal style of Wushu. Translated, Tai Chi literaly means "Ultimate Fist" which is properly named for its superior uses and benefits. Tai Chi is founded on balancing energy or life-force by feeding or directing it through one's system. Practitioners may also find that Tai Chi is a fighting style, powerfull as it is graceful.

This class helps students develop and enhance that ability as well teaches the applications in terms of combat and in health.
