Kung fu classes
Northern Shaolin Kung Fu classes are outdoors, two hours each, on Wednesday nights at 7 pm in downtown Decatur, in metro Atlanta, and Sundays at 12:00 noon in Glenlake Park, just a mile away.
Ours is a dynamic community of people, just like you, working hard to better themselves. It’s a community of people working on individual, personal progress. Students strengthen their bodies, minds and spirits. They transform themselves.
All of our Kung Fu classes are Teen / Adult Kung Fu classes – the minimum age for attendance is 15 years old. Unfortunately, we just don’t have the resources for younger students.
Please visit the Chien Hong school (personally recommended), if you are looking for children Kung fu and martial arts classes. They have an amazing program! And tell them we sent ya! 🙂
Through our intensive training and varied studies, students learn to not just do Kung Fu.
We build the martial body, the sensitive and probing mind and spirit, the depth of character you need to transform yourself and your world.
Philosophy, Forms, Martial Applications, Physical Fitness & Conditioning, Weaponry, Qigong, Chinese Language… All this and more.
Traditional Kung Fu Training
All classes have one main goal: to help you, the student, progress to push your “personal best” to even higher levels – all within a fun & friendly environment!
Students receive individual, one-on-one attention, as Kung Fu is about personal progress – the progression along a path towards mastery.
In every single PATHS Atlanta Kung Fu class, you are guaranteed to make personal progress to learn something new, to gain new perspectives on your previously-learned material, to learn and practice the martial applications of movements with fellow students, and much more.
Also at each class, students will engage in ever-challenging physical exercises. But don’t let this concept scare you off. The physically-challenging aspects in the beginning are easily self-regulated, such that you can do what you can do. And then a little more, of course! 🙂
With Fun Sprinkled In!
You’ll get a work out. But you’re among classmates and like-minded Kung Fu friends.
From soreness, confusion, frustration, awkwardness and more – everyone goes through the various stages from time to time and so it’s nice to be able to relate to others, ask questions, share experiences and tips, etc.
And Share Some Laughs.
Even in the midst of working out, in whatever Kung Fu class you may be attending, laughter and the accompanying smiles don’t seem to be far away.
And something that tends to lighten the burden of physicality in every class – there always seems to be a chuckle-worthy moment or two at almost every class!
