Our self-defense program is highly effective because it teaches how to use the opponent’s energy against himself. Not competing with an opponent on a force against force basis allows a much smaller person to be effective in defeating an attacker. Students will come to understand kung fu’s three levels of fighting and develop full power punches and kicks on targets, not people. Because we only use full power punches and kicks there is no free sparring in our school. Effective self-defense skills can be developed without injuring each other in the process. True self-defense is not a game and we do not teach it as such.
