Internal Kung Fu

with 2 Comments

Traditional Chinese Internal Kung Fu (Zhong Guo Nei Jia Quan), is also called Chinese Boxing or Energy Boxing. The term “Boxing” as used here refers to Chinese martial arts, not Western sport boxing.

There are many systems of Chinese Boxing. The ones we teach includes the three main “internal” styles of: Taijiquan (Tai Chi Chuan), Xingyiquan (Hsing I Chuan), and Baguazhang (Pa Kua Zhang). Students also have the opportunity to learn internal versions of the Southern arts of Fujian Baihequan (Fukien Pai Ho Chuan), Yim Wing Chun (Yongquan) as well as Wudang Kung Fu and Shaolin Kung Kung Fu.

The training is based upon traditional Chinese martial arts training methods. Training is available at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. Our curriculum contains forms, Qigong, conditioning, application, Kong Sao (free fighting), Chin Na (locking), Shuai Chiao (throwing), dog boxing (ground fighting), and weapons.

Advanced students will have the opportunity to study our family method of Chinese Boxing including martial Qigong, iron palm, and weapons skills.
