Zhen Wu Prague offers classes in a rare, coveted style of traditional Chinese kung fu known as Tong Bei. Tong Bei literally translates as "through the back." Based on the movement of a white gibbon, the style emphasizes long, swinging arm techniques and body structure to develop connected power. We teach both an artform and a highly effective fighting technique. In Zhen Wu, form equals function.
Group classes in Prague every Tuesday from 7-8.30pm and Saturday from 2-3.30pm. Tongbei Style Kung Fu. Private lessons also available. All levels, from beginner to advanced. We suggest at least one hour of your own training for every hour of class attended. Diligence and perseverence is the key to improvement.
There is a strong emphasis on rooting techniques, applications, softness and subtlety in execution combined with intent and precision. Power is not generated from the limbs but rather the core and from a correct use of alignment and body mechanics. The approach is highly scientific and intricate, elegant in execution, brutal in battle.
Martial arts involves a strong understanding of culture, the individual and communal sharing and responsibility. Regardless of age, we are all students of martial arts, hungry to learn and humble in our appraoch. Zhen Wu believes in honoring the masters who have come before us, honoring them through diligent, daily practice of an artform.
Zhen Wu Martial Arts is an international organization with strong lineages and ties to generations of traditional Chinese martial arts masters. We are affiliated with schools in China, Europe and the United States.
