Saturday Kungfu Class 


2:45-4:15 pm

Kung fu teaches kids to adopt a physically fit lifestyle, provides a productive outlet for burning off their boundless energy, builds their confidence, focus and self-esteem and teaches them how to defend themselves from bullies, should the need arise.

Raising children in the age of video games can be challenging for a parent who understands the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle. Kung fu is a great way to encourage children to trade the ease and comfort of a sedentary lifestyle for a more active one. The Bamboo Kung Fu School children’s martial arts classes, taught at convenient locations in Scarborough and downtown Toronto, introduce boys and girls age 6-12 to a fun, exciting way to stay fit. Children 13 and older are also welcome, and are included in our adult kung fu classes. At Bamboo Kung Fu School we teach Choi Lee Fut kung fu. This style of kung fu integrates more than 100 movements, like short and long-range punches and kicks, which provide a full-body workout and strengthen growing joints and muscles. Kids have fun and make new friends while also developing strong, healthy bodies and essential social skills.
