Monkey Kung Fu

The Carolina Monkey Kung Fu Club introduces and instructs participants in the Ta Sheng Pi Kua Monkey style of Chinese Kung Fu. The Club is taught with traditional training methods by an instructor with over 20 years of experience in the Martial Art. Through physically demanding exercises, students learn a variety of punching, kicking, self-defense and other various Kung Fu techniques. Participants also learn forms associated with the style. The Monkey Style strives to imitate and apply monkey’s movements to human participants. Practices help students to increase their physical strength and endurance, learn better self-coordination and self-control. Besides the physical training, members may also participate in relaxation and meditative exercises to work on their minds as well as their bodies. All levels of skill and ability are welcome to join.
