Our Teaching Methods
In the Youth Kung Fu classes we teach Wing Chun Kung Fu. Wing Chun is one of the most famous styles of Kung Fu thanks to it's introduction to the West by the late, great Bruce Lee.
The Youth Kung Fu classes differ from the adult Wing Chun classes in several ways. We have developed the syllabus to be more engaging for young people, for example we leave out some of the more abstract training. From our teaching experience we have realised that in general young people of this age, at least initially, want their training to make sense to them. They want to understand that this movement can be used to defend against this range of attacks, rather than completing an abstract exercise that they are told will benefit them at some point in the future.
The second significant difference is that we play more fun games in the Youth Kung Fu class. So rather than standing and going through a movement routine to get warmed up we play Kung Fu games, which do a similar job. The students then get to let off a bit of steam at the beginning of the class allowing for greater focus during the rest of the lesson.
