Self Confidence - Self Esteem - Self Respect
Through the fundamental principles of Wah Lum Kung Fu, children develop physical, mental, and emotional balance and strength. Learning through movement not only builds a healthy body but also provides a physical way of knowledge that is appropriate, effective, and fun.
Utilizing the curriculum of Wah Lum Kung Fu, we teach the fundamentals of movement:
- Focus: the ability to willfully hold one's attention.
- Groundedness: the ability to create physical strength by relying on the ground.
- Balance: the ability to express motion while remaining centered.
- Power: the ability to express strength and energy in a controlled manner.
These underlying principles of movement are at the core of martial arts, dance, and all athletics, and form the basis for physical self-confidence. All the varying drills, games, forms, and exercises children learn in class are geared toward teaching these core fundamentals.
Through this traditional art form, children are able to learn about themselves and how to relate and respond to others, and their surroundings in a safe, noncompetitive environment. Youngsters learn the value and rewards of respect and self confidence as they move through the curriculum at their own pace. Authentic movements, derived from animals stimulate their imagination while fostering an appreciation for the natural world.
Moreover, Wah Lum Kung Fu provides children the opportunity to realize the productive use of their energy and the enjoyment of
discovering the limitless potential provided by good effort and a positive attitude.
Wah Lum Kung Fu offers programs appropriate for youngsters 6 years old and up.
