In the children’s group (8 – 12 years) we teach traditional Shaolin kung fu and the basics for further training in different styles of wushu, both taolu and sanshou. There is both a beginner and advanced group and students train 1 – 2 times a week in their first term and 2 – 3 times a week in their second term onwards.

The minimum age is set at 8 years old because the training can be complex and a student usually needs to be at least 8 to absorb the knowledge.

At 13 years old students move up to the adult group but this can happen earlier if interest and progress permits.  At 13 a student can also begin to train sanshou.

In the first term we train basic kung fu/wushu techniques with an acrobatic element. After the first term students begin with form (taolu) and staff training

If a student is interested in competing (taolu) there is an opportunity to do so once the student has learned their first form.
