Sifu Cindy to speak at Seacoast Women’s Network Event

Tuesday, November 10, 2015:   Sifu Cindy is the featured speaker at the November Seacoast Women’s Network dinner meeting.  The topic?   Danger Awareness and Self-Defense for women, of course!   The event offers a great opportunity to provide the participants (who have been encouraged to wear comfortable clothing) some timely and critical awareness/defense skills.  It’s a great honor to be invited to share this knowledge!

Kung Fu Summertime Fun

Classes are small in the summer.  People wander off to do other things, but for those who remain committed to their training, summer classes can offer a truly different perspective.   Yes, the usual drills are done.  Yes, the work on forms and techniques continues.  But–especially for the younger students….. there’s time for more fun activities during the summer months…things like soccer with a 6-pound medicine ball (that’s different!), or soccer with a giant exercise ball (provides more challenge than you think), catching flying foam discs (they fly in very odd paths), water balloon fights in the parking lot (cool!), a game of baseball using a noodle and sponge ball …..   yup…. give us a try this summer.   Martial arts skills can be developed in many different ways!
