Kids' Kung Fu Classes
Wing Chun Kung Fu is an excellent martial art and hobby for children and assuring for parents concerned about their safety.
It is easy to learn and enormously practical. Its techniques offer smaller people the ability to overcome larger attackers because the movements are based on skill rather than size or strength.
The International Wing Chun Academy has been teaching children from the age of five years in schools and at its branches around Australia since 1973.
Our Little Dragons classes for children aged from five to 13 years are safe and fun, and students quickly acquire the skills to spot and avoid dangerous situations and protect their physical and mental well-being when no other help is at hand.
"With bullying on the increase in schools, our Little Dragons are introduced to psychological aspects of self defense from day one. Learning how to escape from a threatening situation without resorting to violence is always our aim. This is done by instilling in students confidence, respect and a positive attitude that the students can take into their daily lives."
Wing Chun builds character, making it an ideal interest for shy or introverted children and a positive step on the road to a healthy, active lifestyle. The IWCA offers children an interesting way to get fit and trains the mind as well as the body. Students experience improvement in:
- Self discipline
The Little Dragons training programme differs from that for our adult classes and is broken up into a series of grades or 'sashes' each one building on the basic self defence skills learnt at the beginning. Older students are given the responsibility of helping with warm-up exercises and to help demonstrate techniques, and regular awards are made on the basis of improvements in focus, attitude or discipline.
The IWCA has been running self defence courses for children in schools around Australia for over 30 years.
