Kung Fu is a demanding and high impact martial art. Classes teach flexibility, strength, core fitness and balance as a framework for growth into the external arts of lau kune do. You will learn empty hand forms, weapons training, full body conditioning, empty hand sparring as well as access to Taoist breathing and power techniques.
Wing Chun has the largest influence on the Lau Kune Do System.

Students develop concentration, discipline, and self-defense skills.

Training devices such as the wooden dummy have been used by China's Shaolin Temple fighting monks for more than 2,000 years. Practice is the key to mastery in any martial art. Execution of thousands of strikes, kicks and blocks against a partner is the key to integrating the strategies and techniques in such a way that they become second nature. However, live partners are not always available. So the next best thing, of course, would be a stand-in - and that's where the wooden dummy comes in for the practice necessary for mastering kung fu techniques. The temple also is equippped with Hanging Bags, Padded Mats, and and all other tools neccessary for teaching the arts of Lau Kune Do.
