Kung Fu 功夫 in 2023
Kung Fu (功夫) is one of the oldest forms of Martial Arts in the world. One of the earliest recollections for Kung Fu is that it began with the Xia Dynasty (夏朝) over 4,000 years ago. Over the many centuries it has grown and developed through countless wars and uprisings, making many legends along the way.
Kung Fu in literal terms means “skill acquired through practice”. It is practiced today by millions of people around the world. The most famous form of the art today is Kung Fu Wushu (功夫術武) which is the combat sport arm. Some of the most famous practitioners in history include Yue Fei, Wong Fei Hung, Jet Li, Jackie Chan, Ip Man and of course the legendary Bruce Lee. The Kung Fu Academy NZ (永恆强功夫新西蘭) uses thousands of years and many styles of Kung Fu and adapts it for the modern world, making it a challenging and enjoyable experience.
Martial Arts benefit you by exercising the mind, body and spirit, keeping you fit and healthy and allowing you to learn more about yourself and what you are really capable of. There are also many underlying values that you learn through martial arts, such as self discipline, respect, humility, empathy, resilience, honour, integrity, persistence, dedication and more, all of which are core values that we at the Kung Fu Academy NZ 永恆强功夫新西蘭 hold dear.
