Elton Community Centre, David Street, Bury BL8 1SA,

Mondays 8-9pm  



Gain confidence, improve your health, strength, flexibility, fitness, lose weight and acquire blistering speed in unique friendly and enjoyable classes, that are ideal for people interested in learning authentic elementary Shaolin Kung Fu but also kinda like Rock music in place of the usual boring dance music that accompanies every other exercise class these days.

The class is a Kung Fu technique based workout without much personal contact or sparring. The class offers participants the scope for one of the most physically progressive fitness classes possible.

The classes provide an essential ‘Kung Fu’ physical education, with skills that equip the student with ancient and rare Shaolin Kung Fu. Our Tiger & Crane form echoes back to the early formation of that style and was made famous by the legendary Wong Fei Hung, as seen in countless kung fu movies.  

Regular students that manage the Kung Fu fitness class ok, can also start the optional intermediate ‘Kung Fu Combat Class’ if desired. The Combat Class teaches the fighting applications to match the routines and styles learned in the fitness class, and offers carefully controlled free fighting, body toughening/conditioning and in depth partnered Kung Fu technique applications, plus the opportunity to study for belt grades.
