The Sun & Moon Curriculum
Sun & Moon Martial Arts is a traditional Hung Gar Kung Fu School. Our curriculum is carefully designed to help children and adults learn Kung Fu regardless of their current skill level. Although we have created a safe environment for everyone to learn self defense and compete in sport karate, Sun & Moon is truly a martial art and combat school.
Our students learn real life self defense and real combat techniques through the use of forms, partner exercises, weapons, and various types of sparring drills. Once students have become more experienced and reach a level of maturity they can add wrestling, throwing, and joint lock exercises to their martial arts training.
The curriculum for younger students at Sun & Moon focuses on developing different types of kicks, punches, hand techniques, blocks, and forms until they have matured and developed a safe foundation from which to grow and become more advanced in Hung Gar Kung Fu.
