Wing Chun Kung Fu¿s roots can be traced from the Southern Shaolin Temple in China to the late Grand Master Yip Man. It is one of the few martial arts that attributes its origins to a woman. Although popularized as Bruce Lee¿s ¿mother art¿, the practice of Wing Chun remains substantially different from his Jeet Kune Do. Taught as a predominantly internally-oriented style stressing technique, sensitivity, and subtle awareness instead of brute force, Wing Chun provides practical self-defense for men and women and a means for developing the mind and spirit.

ATHLETIC 20M. Capoeira Club. 1 Unit.

Capoeira is a breathtaking Afro-Brazilian art which combines practical martial arts, dance, acrobatics, music, history and philosophy. The origin of Capoeira is obscure since the evolution of Capoeira during the Brazilian slave trade was not well documented. Most theories point toward adapted movements from traditional Angola dance which evolved into techniques of self-defense. When Capoeira was outlawed by slave owners the fighting art became disguised as a dance through the addition of music and acrobatic movements. In the 1930¿s Capoeira was legalized in Brazil and is now spreading throughout the world.

ATHLETIC 73M. JKA Shotokan Karate. 1 Unit.

Shotokan Karate is a weaponless martial art developed in Okinawa and Japan, emphasizing power and efficiency in combat. Skilled karateka defeat their opponents with minimal number of techniques and effort, which is particularly useful when facing multiple opponents. Shotokan is distinguished from other martial arts by the linearity and strength of its punches, blocks, and kicks. Precise techniques, accompanied by mastery and focus of energy flows and a deep knowledge of the body¿s vital points, make this karate style a comprehensive system for self-defense and combat. However, Shotokan Karate is much more than just a way to defend and fight ¿ it is an holistic system in which the training itself has far reaching effects on the trainee. It is an ideal way to become and stay fit, as it combines intense aerobic and anaerobic exercises. It is a way to gain self-discipline and the confidence to surmount everyday obstacles, whether tangible or not. Shotokan Karate encourages and helps in the exploration and understanding of both the physical and mental self.
