WHAT: Kungfu Class! I’ve mentioned this to a few members and some of you were interesting in checking it out. Our original organizer was a kungfu teacher and a few of us have been studying since the beginning of this meetup. Rudy is in Hong Kong now but stops by Texas every once in awhile! I’ve taken most of the write-up from his HK kungfu meetup.
Natural Style Kungfu (自然门/Ziranmen), is a unique traditional Chinese Martial Art that uses the entire body in an integrated way to exercise and strengthen your muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It incorporates aerobics to build cardiovascular and muscular endurance; shares with yoga an emphasis on strength and flexibility and has qualities of dance as it improves agility and coordination. It is an art form as much as a form of self defense, and is rooted deeply into Chinese culture and philosophy. Simply have fun with a purpose improving your strength, flexibility, coordination and self-defense skills while nourishing qualities of patience, focus, confidence and yes…discipline!
BRING: Wear layered workout clothing (as warm up can remove, as get cool can put on!), flat tennis shoes & bring a bottle of water! And bug spray! A towel also helps!
WHERE: Mexican American Cultural Center. There’s a parking lot there but can get full at times. There’s also parking under I-35 to the east that is a short walk to the MACC.
