After School Clubs

Classes in the Cambridge area for those in Reception to Year 6.

The Cambridge Kung Fu 'After School Programme' offers the same unique mix of Kung Fu games, fun and martial arts as our community classes.  The children will receive a rounded martial arts education; teaching them all the social, emotional, mental and physical benefits that come from martial arts training.

We aim to teach children as children and as such our classes look somewhat different to what many people may think of as a martial arts class. Discipline is an important part of our classes however our long term goal is to inspire the children and help them to understand the benefits that come from self discipline and focus as opposed to discipline enforced from above, where the results are more short term.

The 'difficulty' of the martial arts in our after school classes depends on the ages of the children, and our syllabus is based on our community Kids Classes (see links below for more details), although sometimes the children will learn a shorter form due to the length of some schools term times.

The corresponding community classes are:

St Faith's: 1st Class - Years R, 1 & 2: Tiny Tigers

St Faith's: 2nd Class - Years 3-6: Will generally learn the Little Dragons form but with elements of the Junior Warriors syllabus

University of Cambridge Primary School: 1st Class - Years R & 1: Tiny Tigers

University of Cambridge Primary School: 2nd Class - Years 2 & 3: Little Dragons

Perse Prep: Years 3-6: Will generally learn the Little Dragons form but with elements of the Junior Warriors syllabus

Perse Pelican: Years 1 & 2: Tiny Tigers

St. John's College School: 1st Class - Years 3 & 4: Little Dragons

St. John's College School: 2nd Class - Years 5-8: Will generally learn the Junior Warriors form but with elements of the Youth Kung Fu syllabus

We also teach 'in curriculum' classes at St. John's College School, Perse Pelican and Homerton Nursery School.

If you are interested in starting Kids classes at your school then please Contact Us and we can see if this is possible. All of our After (and Pre) School Classes started as a result of a parent, child or staff member starting the ball rolling, so if you like what we do maybe you could be the catalyst for a new Cambridge Kung Fu School class!

After School Clubs' Grading

Each term students in our After (and Pre) School Clubs will learn a different form (a sequence of moves). In our younger classes the children will learn a form based on different sets of animals and characters. In the older classes the students will learn a form based on a martial art. They will learn stances and attacking and defensive techniques specific to that martial art, they will learn where the martial art comes from and a some other background information.

In some classes (depending on age/length of class and term) the children will be graded (assessed) individually on the quality of their movement, their ability to remember the form, the names of the moves and the facts they have learnt. If they pass the grading they will receive a certificate and a badge to sew on to their Kung Fu suit.

In other classes we do not grade the students however they still receive a certifcate and badge at their Ceremony to reward their hard work.
