Tibetan White Crane Gong-fu will be starting back up March 13 for Spring session one!
According to David Moore's Sifu (martial arts teacher) since 1996, John Cole, the origin of Tibetan White Crane Gong-fu ("skill acquired through repetition") began when a monk's meditation was disturbed by a battle between a white crane and a white ape. Thus began a fighting style that emulates the evasive movements of the Crane, and the powerful movements of the Ape.
Classes will be Friday from 6:00 PM to 6:45 PM
The White Crane Style emphasizes powerful exertion of force, firm footwork, clear rhythm and the domination of arm movements. All movements strive to be clean, quick and graceful.
To Register and for more information check out our website!
