Kung Fu Conditioning
Learning technique is only half the battle when learning a fighting system, your body also needs to be conditioned to deliver the intense strikes and kicks without injury to yourself. The Kung Fu Conditioning class includes exercises that strengthen the areas of the body used for striking (for instance: knuckles, palms, arms and legs). Work is done with various training bags, wooden dummies and with controlled contact with other students (not sparring).
