Youth Kung Fu- Continuing
These classes are for kids who have previous martial arts experience and are a continuation of the beginning classes. Students at Manitou Center are trained in a system that promotes health and longevity as well as becoming proficient in a highly effective system of self defense. Students start by learning Kung Fu forms (sets) and techniques that open and stretch the body as well as condition the muscles, bones and cardiovascular system. Students learn to use their body to generate power through relaxation and fluidity rather that stiff muscular force. Students learn the about working to train themselves as an integrated, whole individual. This includes focusing not only on moving our bodies, but also on simultaneously engaging our minds!
