Common Questions:

1.  Do I need prior experience in Kung Fu or another martial art?

Absolutely not.  Classes are designed for a mix of different levels to improve and grow together.  Your progression will depend on the work, focus and dedication you put in.

2.  What can I expect training to be like?

The Shaolin curriculum places a strong emphasis on developing solid foundation skills through disciplined training.  In a typical class, we start with warm up drills that help improve mobility and coordination.  This is followed by full body stretching & kick drills to increase our range of motion and speed.  Stance work and line work is done to build a strong base, strength and endurance.  Afterwards, students work on various forms, applications and/or partner work.

3.  What should I wear to class?

Uniforms are required for those who enrol in the Kung Fu program, which consist of a shirt, pants and shoes.  The cost is $75 for a set.  If you are coming for drop in or Qigong, please wear  loose fitting, comfortable clothing (such as a T-shirt and sweatpants) that will not restrict movement.  A comfortable pair of indoor running shoes/footwear with non-marking soles are required.
