Training in kids or adults Kung Fu is more than just physical movements. Kung Fu is a holistic exercise and fitness program for body and mind.
After each junior Kung Fu class we say the creed below.
“I will develop myself in a positive manner and avoid anything that will reduce my mental growth or physical health. I will develop self discipline in order to bring out the best in myself and others and use what I learn in class constructively and defensively to help myself and others and I will never be abusive or offensive.”
Strong words we emphasize with our young Kung Fu students, but an equally strong message in this passage for us all. It is a reminder of the importance of treating ourselves and others with respect both mentally and physically.
If you consistently listen to negative talk or eat less nutritious food, how can you ever expect to better yourself or even more, help others. Take time to read through this powerful creed and take notice of key points that trigger positive thoughts or actions.
