Welcome to Pure Shaolin Kung Fu, San Francisco!
Benefits of practicing Chinese Martial Arts
Martial arts have been able to stand up to all the scientific tests. They are obviously physically and mentally beneficial. Different martial arts bring about different effects. If someone wants to battle stress and anxiety, most forms of martial arts will suffice. For the elderly and those that are physically limited, Tai Chi and Qigong are wonderful forms of exercise. The martial arts, however, are by no means age specific.
Asian martial arts pick up where Western sports are lacking. They promote a healthy way of life as well as physical development. This combination allow martial arts to perform wonders for many. Overall, studies have verified that properly practiced martial arts can bring about positive physical and psychological changes. The Asian martial arts have turned ou to be more than just tools for self-defense. They have developed into systems that no only protect the practitioner from attackers, but also poor physical and psychological health.
Each student is encouraged to work towards personal fulfillment. The instructor personally works with each student and performs demonstrations for better learning.
Beginners are very welcome and should not be intimidated. Students of this school are very respectful and friendly. We all start as beginners and should embrace the challenge. Most adult students at our studio started without any experience in martial arts.
