Kung Fu for Beginners (Non-Contact)

Please note that we do our best to keep this calendar up-to-date but with so much going on at Claremont, we occasionally drop the ball. It’s unlikely for example that we’ll be quick enough to change the timetable if a tutor cancels at short notice. If you want to be certain about a class running, please call us! Tel: 020 7837 3402. Please also note that tickets bought online for our classes are non-refundable, for that day/class class only, and cannot be used for a different day or carried forward to another class!

Kung Fu for Beginners (Non-Contact)

May 23, 2024 - 1:00 pm

About the event

Teacher: Dave Courtney Jones


Things to bring with you: Comfortable clothing


Beginners Kung Fu summary:

This non-contact Kung Fu class offers the chance to learn and practise in a safe environment. Kung Fu can bring many health and wellbeing benefits, from helping with memory, posture, breathing and coordination as well as balance, core strength, muscle tone and general fitness.


Dave’s gentle and focused approach helps attendees to learn a great deal in a calm, productive environment. Dave often uses the authentic Chinese terms and associated historic stories to demonstrate how to best execute each movement. Translated, narrative examples include ‘green dragon leaves the water and becomes a plum blossom branch’ or ‘leopard cat washes its face…’ and many more, providing a poetic education. These sessions are often aided by Dave’s colleague. Together, they demonstrate partner sequences, helping to place the movements in ‘real life’ scenarios. No experience is needed.
