In addition to our ongoing weekly classes in the martial arts, we currently hold a monthly Kung Fu training series twice a month, on the second Tuesday at our Lakewood location and on the last Wednesday at our Love Field location.
The material covered consists of the training methods and forms taken from the different Kung Fu Masters Dr. Chamberlain has studied with over the last 35 years. Dr. Chamberlain has been fortunate to train with instructors in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo, New York, Boston and California. To save you some travel time, come and try the class!
The series is open to anyone interested and does not require prior experience or training. Equipment needed will be loose clothing to work out in and the weapons used in the class (some you can borrow and the rest is available for purchase through the school). We will cover a different Kung Fu form every few months. The curriculum will include: marching drills, kicking sets, arm conditioning drills, iron palm, chin na, some history on what you are doing, and northern and southern style kung fu forms, including those below.
Have fun, stretch out, help each other and practice between classes or you will get helplessly lost… See you on the mat!
