A MARTIAL ARTS PROGRAM FOR THE EMPOWERMENT OF GIRLS™ 


 

I AM SPECIAL!  I AM BEAUTIFUL!   I AM SMART!   I AM STRONG!

 

What is Girl Power?

Girl Power is a martial arts program for the empowerment of girls  (ages 6-12). In a fun, upbeat, non-competitive atmosphere, we teach practical self-defense, fitness, safety awareness, and encourage positive thinking and creative expression. We teach our students to compete with themselves, to accept themselves, while constantly working to improve. We have demonstrations where our students can exhibit their skills and are honored for their progress.  Children have different levels of coordination and body strength.  Unlike school sports where you have to make the team, no one is excluded from Girl Power because of difficulty in mind/body coordination. Everyone has the right to learn to defend themselves.

 

Martial Arts For Boys - Peaceful Warriors
 

Peaceful Warriors is a martial arts program for boys (ages 6-12) that teaches them to build inner strength, and respect for themselves and others. When a boy finds his true power, it releases insecurity and fear and brings peace and self-confidence.


In Peaceful Warriors, we build a foundation of self-discipline, self-confidence, and an ability to focus that leads to greater success in school, sports, and social situations. In a fun, upbeat, non-competitive atmosphere, we teach practical self-defense, safety awareness, and the ability to think clearly during an emergency. We do not enter tournaments which emphasize winners and losers. We teach our students to compete with themselves, to accept themselves, while constantly working to improve.  We have demonstrations where our students can exhibit their skills and are honored for their progress.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM A SHAOLIN

KUNG FU ACADEMY ADULT CLASS:

      Our classes begin with reflection and discussion on the philosophy that underlies the art of Shaolin Kung Fu. We then do breathing and energy exercises, warm up, and basic movements of the art. We then rotate throughout the year with a more focused exploration of self- defense, including gun and knife defense, various animal styles, Tiger, Crane, Dragon, Mantis, etc. We also incorporate training with weapons -- staff, sword, knifes, and fighting sticks. Shaolin is to be taught only to those who are compassionate and merciful, and self-defense is the only application of our martial skills. We do not enter tournaments to prove our fighting prowess. We end our classes with live action non-contact sparring matches. This is a time for us to appreciate the beauty of the art and to learn how to express it through our movements. Every student is an artist and is encouraged to be creative and individual in their expression of it.
