Adult Kung Fu
Praying Mantis Kung Fu is considered by many to be the first form of MMA. The style covers of every aspect of Martial Arts from Long Weapons, Short Weapons to Long, Short, and Grappling Empty hand techniques, and we pride ourselves on teaching all application oriented skills.
Sifu Bateman is one of only a few 8th Generation successors to the style, and the Masters at our Academy have been trained and certified in China.
Kids Kung Fu
Kids will learn all the forms of Praying Mantis Kung Fu, while building confidence, strength, commitment and respect in our Little Warriors classes. They will earn their sashes, working their way up to their black sash through hard work and study.
Taught by Sifu Bateman and Jason, who is an Advanced Level 3 Black Sash.
Boys and girls of all ages welcome. Sifu will decide when teens are ready into the adult classes.
Unlike cardio kickboxing, you will learn proper body positioning and angles when punching and kicking by learning the applications of San Shoou Kickboxing, a Chinese martial art. This medium to high impact workout will help you lose weight, gain flexibility, and give you self defense skills in the event that you need them.
A medium to high impact workout designed to increase strength, balance and conditioning targeting the body’s core muscles. While the target area is the same, the workout varies from class to class to keep you out of your comfort zone. Set to music.
QiGong is a form of gentle exercise composed of movements that are repeated a number of times, often stretching the body, increasing fluid movement (blood, synovial and lymph) and building awareness of how the body moves through space. There are both external movements and internal movements -- which make QiGong a superior health and wellness practice. In keeping with our Academy, we practice the Shaolin Eighteen Lohan Hands forms.
