Wushu Classes (4 - 12 years old)
 
In present day, children spend too much time indoors in the classroom, doing homework or playing video games. Wushu (or martial arts) is a profound form of exercise, combining ancient forms of movement with modern techniques of sports training. Wushu allows children to develop great strength, speed, power and also helps train their flexibility, coordination, and balance.

In addition, children will gain a deeper understanding of the ancient Chinese culture and experience one of the finest Chinese musical instruments.

In addition, Wushu has an inherent emphasis on discipline, focus and respect in the martial tradition. A series of values, traditionally known as 'Wu De'- Martial Ethics, is often viewed as the guiding principles behind the practice of Wushu. For example, Wu De teaches the children to have respect for the teacher and others, to treat others with compassion, to exercise self-control, to practice humility and modesty, to not bully the weak, to persevere during hardship, and to develop oneself physically. All these Wu De values, together with the training from Wushu, embodies the ideals of a martial scholar and promotes holistic development in children. The Wushu class is taught by a native Chinese martial arts master and the medium of instruction will be in Putonghua.
