Weight Control

The unique Chinese Boxing movements and exercises will fight the unwanted flab and at the same time develop and trim up your whole body quickly. Your body weight will soon be normalised.

   Many trainees lost an awful lot of stubborn fat without even trying when other drastic dieting or severe measures had failed. The desired weight loss is brought about by improved body metabolism and circulation, thus burning off your unwanted fat without your realising it.

Confidence through Fitness

Chinese Boxing makes it easy for anyone who wants to keep trim and fighting fit. It helps women to develop poise as they learn to defend themselves effectively. Personal confidence comes naturally and easily to those who train.

 

Discipline

A highly organised and systematic martial art such as Wu Shu Kwan Chinese Boxing offers one of the most efficient and painless ways of instilling discipline in those who need it – particularly the younger ones.

Tenets of Wu Shu Kwan

They are as follows:
     1. Peacefulness
     2. Loyalty
     3. Obedience
     4. Patience
     5. Courage
     6. Etiquette
     7. Modesty
     8. Honesty
     9. Purity
   10. Self-Control

   These tenets will help and guide you to become a much better person – physically, mentally and spiritually. Through fulfilling your own personal ambition, you will eventually be a valuable asset to the society. These are not empty words; in Wu Shu Kwan, we practise what we preach.

Overcoming and Relieving Stress

Many mental and physical conditions, such as anxiety, irritation, apathy, high blood pressure and stomach ulcers, may be blamed on stress. It is of paramount importance to be able to come to terms with stress. Wu Shu Kwan Chinese Boxing training can have a beneficial therapeutic effect on people by getting them away from their worries and the pressures of work caused by stressful modern living.

   The British Medical Association urges people to take more exercise to improve their health, and emphasises that “people who exercise regularly feel healthy and are less likely to become depressed”.

   You owe it to yourself to improve your wellbeing by participating in a very enjoyable, beneficial and exciting activity. Please refer to section on How to Enrol for complete details about joining us.

It is very easy to make friends when you train with Wu Shu Kwan, because we are a big family consisting of like-minded, helpful and caring people, who are practising an effective martial art in the pursuance of total fitness and ultimate self-defence. Many members have formed deep and lasting friendship after meeting up in Wu Shu Kwan.

   Don’t take our word for it – come along and find out for yourself. •
