Saturday Southern Style 5 Animal Kung Fu
This beautiful Chinese martial art emulates the moment and disposition of the Tiger, Snake, Crane, Dragon, and Leopard. Our focus will be on studying the introductory form of this style which incorporates elements from all five animals into an elaborate pattern of intricate movements. Do not expect lots of yelling, kicking any wood boards (ouch), or much of what you see in action movies. Instead, you can expect an excellent practice which builds strength, conditioning, and flexibility, which both calms and invigorates the spirit. This class meets on Saturday mornings, in the Body Room, from 10:00 a.m.–noon, and is for any level of experience ages 16–106. To participate, please contact Bryan Kujawski at 612-750-0221 or email@example.com.
