Kick ass with kungfu from Cultural Keys this fall!

It’s been a long time coming, but Cultural Keys’ public events are back with a BANG! This fall, join us for one of our unique kung fu workshops and experience the essence of traditional Chinese culture. With opportunities to experience both taichi and Shaolin styles, we definitely have something for everyone.

Read on to find out more!

8-Week Taichi Beginners Course

Real taichi combines health, self-defense and mindfulness into a practice that is the quintessential Chinese martial art. Unfortunately, most taichi teachers only teach one aspect of taichi – the health part. Most people don’t even know there is more to taichi than simply feeling more relaxed and energized.

Join Cultural Keys this fall and unlock an essential taichi experience – the Trident Taichi 8-Week Beginner’s program, where you will have the opportunity to train in all three of these fundamental aspects, and gain a much deeper understanding of what taichi really is and how it can benefit every aspect of your life.

Shaolin Warrior’s Workshop

Not everyone has the time or ability to go to the Shaolin Temple for a year or two to discover the true meaning of kung fu. But for those who still want a taste of traditional Shaolin kung fu culture and training, join Cultural Keys on Sunday, October 18th for our next Shaolin Warriors’ Workshop!

You will sweat. You will burn. You will push your body in ways you have never done before. You will want to stop. But you won’t! And after 3 hours of training, you will definitely have a better idea of the true meaning of Shaolin kung fu and of Shaolin Spirit!

During this 3-hour intense workshop, participants will train authentic Shaolin techniques, including punches, kicks, applications and a short Shaolin form, all taught with a focus on the ‘5 Concepts’ of Speed, Accuracy, Power, Hardness and Intent.

There will be no sparring during these workshops, and they are not ‘fighting’ classes. There will be no competition between participants, but there will be some light contact while training. While all fitness levels are welcome, do please note that if you are extremely unfit, it may limit your ability to fully benefit from the workshops.

The course will be held at Warrior One training and fitness studio, which is a 10 minute walk from Liangmaqiao Subway Station. The teacher is a native-English speaking martial artist from the UK, who has studied both Taichi and Shaolin styles for 20 years and has been teaching expats and Chinese people martial arts for 10 years.
