At Blue Crane Martial Arts, we feel that experiencing is believing. We want prospective students to try out our classes to make sure that they are the right fit for them and to get a feeling for our school.
Five animal Shaolin Kung Fu – Tiger, Crane, Dragon, Leapord, and Snake.
Kung fu is a fluid style of Chinese martial arts which focuses on redirection of incoming energy using as little force as possible. Kung fu fosters self esteem, confidence, fitness and above all respect for yourself and others. We feel that the elegant movement of these five animals delivers an individualized method of connecting the mind and body for self defence.
Kickboxing now is a component of our kung fu program for those students who have developed their skills in kung fu first, usually after about 6 months to one year. Please note that we no longer offer kickboxing as a separate class.
Youth Program:(8 years old and up)
Our children’s program is designed to teach youth to be respectful to others and themselves. The self-discipline and self confidence they develop is something that is rarely emphasized in other sports in the way that it is in Kung Fu. In Kung Fu this is a way of life. The North American attitude tends to place the emphasis on just winning. In a street defence situation we teach all our students that it is much more honourable to walk away, than to fight just to prove that you can win. The strongest warrior defeats an opponent without a fight – but is always prepared to do so if needed.
Competition? We only compete for experience and not for trophies. However, our students have won thousands of awards! We teach that anyone who puts out the effort is a winner. We compete only about two to three times a year but have produced many Ontario and Canadian Junior Open Champions (more than all the other local clubs combined ) and competing is optional .
Benefits of our program:
Fitness and co-ordination
and not least of all……fun!
A seed of confidence planted by Kung Fu will reap the harvest of character.
We invite you to come in and see the amazing results and to talk to any of the parents who have their children enrolled in our program. We also offer very low priced affordable one month trial memberships .You may watch or even participate in a free class if you like!
Your child deserves the very best.
