"Kristina is an amazing trainer. I enjoy the sessions immensely and I can see improvements in my fitness level. Thank you." DD
The classes are taught by Instructor Kristina, a Double Gold Medal Winner at the Southern Shaolin Invitational Tournament in China. She has been teaching Kung Fu for the past ten years.
If you want to learn Kung Fu but prefer to train in a female only class, then these classes are for you. In addition to our usual mixed classes, we teach the Kung Fu Zone Women's classes. These classes are for females only and taught by a female instructor.
The system we teach was created by a woman called Fan Chi Niang who lived in Yong Chun village in Fujian, China in the 17th century. It is designed to use intelligence, yielding and body structure over muscular strength so that a smaller woman can overcome a larger attacker. You will learn the most efficient way to defend yourself and your loved ones against a stronger attacker.
The Tiger Crane Combination system is traditionally taught through forms. Forms are set routines that are designed to teach the practitioner the principles and techniques of the system gradually. The syllabus contains sixteen forms, eleven freehand forms and five weapons forms.
Good health, fitness and core strength are fundamental to being a good Shaolin Kung Fu practitioner. We begin every class with a High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout that will help you achieve the health, fitness, strength and body shape that has been out of reach. The classes will help you lose weight, improve your cardiovascular function and achieve levels of fitness that you have never experienced before. These classes will help you see first hand that the perceived limitations you place on yourself can be destroyed, helping you push past what you previously thought was possible and help you become a better version of yourself every day.
