Typical Class Schedule:
Warm-up (stretching, heavy/speed bag, bamboo rolling, foot sweeping, etc.)
2-man form training
Classes are formal but not to the extreme. Typically students warm up, work on techniques planned by the Si Fu and then work on a form of their choice (depending on what they know). All techniques are practiced with students from the class under the guidance and supervision of the head instructor or Si Fu. There is a variety of nice training equipment available. In my experience (approx. 1 year), a lot of time was spent on learning techniques, application, refining, etc. Of the various martial arts schools Ive visited in the area (classical, modern, MMA, etc.) this school has: the most humble instructor, positive attitudes from students, and the fairest and most affordable prices. Overall, the training at this school offers a beautiful art and philosophy and practical self-defense techniques.
