TUESDAYS 7:00 – 8:00pm & FRIDAYS 6:00 – 7:00pm*; FRIDAYS 7:00 – 8:00pm*
This class is open to all levels and will consist mainly of training in basic stances, kicks and empty hand techniques, and well as introductory and advanced empty hand forms. Intermediate students are requested to take this class at least once a week.
The Northern Shaolin (Sil Lum) style of kung fu emphasizes long range techniques, quick advances and retreats, wide stances, kicking and leaping techniques, whirling circular blocks, quickness and agility.
The system teaches empty-hand techniques and weaponry through predetermined combinations, known as forms, routines, or movement of sets. The students learn the basics by practicing the routines until the movements can be executed naturally and instinctually. Then, two or multiple man sets are practiced to train responses and applications of techniques learned from the sets. The gracefulness and fluidness of the movements combined with acrobatic techniques are trademarks of the Northern Shaolin Kung-Fu sets.
Michele and Heather are very grateful for the opportunity to train with Cheung Sifu, and his generosity in sharing his knowledge with everyone in our Seattle group.
*Friday 6:00-7:00 is open to new students
**Friday 7:00-8:00pm class is for intermediate students and above.
