Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Kung Fu?

Kung Fu is renowned for emphasizing physical and mental strength, endurance, and discipline and being rooted in Taoist and Buddhist principles. Martial artists who practice Kung Fu utilize a vast range of techniques, including striking, kicking, joint-locking, and grappling, while also engaging in practices such as meditation, breathing techniques, and mindfulness exercises. Today, Kung Fu maintains its popularity globally, with its principles and techniques incorporated into other martial arts practices and fitness programs.
