Kung Fu for Kids

Why I do Kung Fu

1. It helps me to be more disciplined, more attentive and more confident.

During training, we have to do the same movements over and over again, and make sure we do them right. It’s not easy, because I am still young and sometimes I get distracted, it's fun when I get it right. And the more I am able to do, the more confident I get.

Child's Training with dumbbells

Joint mobility exercises

1 Head rotations

Perform head rotation 20 times in each direction. All exercises should be carried out carefully. The speed of motion is average.

2 Arm swings

Swing your arms forward then backward, 20 times in each direction. Fists should be clenched, elbows straight.

3 Waist rotations

Perform a waist rotation 20 times in one direction and the same in another. Starting position: legs spread slightly wider than shoulder width, feet apart at 45 degree angles. Hands on your hips. During the rotation, the bend must be at its maximum.

Right Nutrition - it's simple

If anyone will ask me what is the most important period in a person's life, I will repy without hesitation: childhood. It is during childhood time that the basic notions about the right attitude towards life, towards the surroundings, toward self are formed; basic habits surface that affect health.

Speaking of health, I not only mean the absense of cough or cold because health has a much broader sence.

Take a car for example. If all mechanisms are intact and are well maintained, if we constantly monitor the condition that the suspension is in and regularly change oil and fill the gas tank with good quality petrol, then the car will run smoothly without giving the owner any hard time. The same goes for our organism. If the internal organs are working cohesively, muscle system is harmoniously developed, the joints have enough mobility, and the body receives the nutrients it needs, only then can we talk about health. Every parent wants to see their child cheerful, lively and carefree happy. How can this be achieved?



Little yin asked the master:

Teacher-Yang, is there any Truth?

- The truth is only in that which you're asking - replied Yang.

Little yin was taken aback:

- Teacher, then the truth is fleeting and therefore we can say that it is not?

Wise Yang grinned, thumbed one bead over and as if expecting this queston his whole life, replied:

- Truth - it is a road and the road is infinite. And that, which you understand as the Truth, little Yin – is just a cozy tent on the side of this road.

Little yin admiringly listen to the teacher. Answers, which he hoped to obtain, have lost their relevance.

Master's words were more, than answers.


Wise Yang said:

-Knowledge sets a person free.

Little Yin asked:

-Is it true that a lot of knowledge can bring a lot of grief?

Wise Yang replied:

- So they say, when they put on a good face during a bad game.

Little yin asked:

-Is the Path of Knowledge - infinite?

Wise Yang answered:

- Knowledge has no borders, but only a free man can walk this Path.

Two Ways

-There are two ways - said Wise Yang. - Path of Knowledge and the Way of Suffering.

-But how to distinguish these paths? - asked the Little yin.

Walking on the Path of Knowledge is easy and pleasant, walking on the Path of Suffering - painful, - replied the Wise Yang.

On the Path of Knowledge you are cheerful and healthy, while on the Path of Suffering you are exhausted. And when you're exhausted, you need to be comforted.

Yin and Yang

Without a doubt, the symbol, associated with East, which embodies its mystery and inconceivability is well known to everybody ... However, is this ancient symbol as incomprehensible as it is thought to be? Let's try to understand the magic of black and white circle. Long ago have the Chinese noticed that the world - is not a chaotic conglomeration of objects and phenomena, but a combination of pairs opposing each other concepts: night and day, heaven and earth, full and empty, motion and rest, and etc.

Roots of Kung Fu

Roots of Kung Fu go well into the time immemorial. The earliest traces can be found, perhaps even in the primitive era. And it is quite certain that during the Zhou Dynasty (XI - III centuries. BC) in China, in addition to ritual combat dances, existed jiaoli [a kind of wrestling], which, along with archery and the art of chariot riding, was a major part of the general military exercises.
