History of Martial Arts ~ Kung Fu ~ Tai Chi

There is a long history of martial arts dating back over a thousand years. There are many ideas of who started it, where it came from, etc. Our understanding is that it first began as a way to condition the body so that people would have the ability to sit for long periods of time in meditation without the body deteriorating. Later, they came into a dark period and needed the ability to protect themselves and developed self defense applications. Our needs today are not much different from a long time ago. Our careers are of high stress and usually require a lot of sitting throughout the day. We use martial arts to keep our health strong and enjoy a higher quality of life. We benefit from over a thousand years of knowledge that has stood the test of time. Times are changing and self defense skills are very valuable in protecting your life or a loved ones. Come in and find out why for yourself how Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Bagua and Qigong can give you the tools you need for good health and self defense.
