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.|

|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.

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