Discipline: Kung-Fu

How does kung-fu differ from other martial arts?

Traditional Chinese kung fu is a very complex martial art. There are throwing and hitting techniques, and pressure points and different types of self-regulation like breathing, health practices, and many methods of developing your body.

Why did you start learning kung-fu?

I loved fighting. I was 12 years old, and I loved to fight.

Have you ever had to use kung-fu in real life?
