KUNG FU - RECREATIONAL

Kung Fu is a broad term that is used to describe all martial arts of Chinese origin. Kung-Fu became eventually categorized into Northern and Southern styles. In the south, Cantonese people pronounce Kung Fu as gung-fu. Southern styles use low stances and kicks and strong hand techniques because they are shorter and stockier than Northern (Mandarin) people. The Northern systems are characterized by stylish and difficult patterns and acrobatic legwork, presumably because it was colder in the North so hand movement was restricted by thick robes and the mountainous terrain enforced the development of strong legs. The kung fu club teaches various forms of sparring. The Kung Fu club practices 2-3 times per week, where members spar against each other. It is valuable to spar with a level of speed, aggression, and strike placement that is inappropriate without a certain amount of protection.
