Although fitness is not a prerequisite to begin your Kung-Fu training, by regular participation your levels of fitness, flexibility and coordination will improve.
Kung-Fu can be translated as 'achievement through great effort'; the strengthening of the body and the mind, and the learning and perfection of one's skills. So, as in any discipline, the more effort the practitioner puts into their training, the greater the results will be.
Classes may include warm up exercises and stretching for flexibility, pad drills for skill, coordination and fitness and resistance exercises for muscle tone and power building.
The fighting drills and controlled sparring will also help to improve your stamina.
