Kung Fu promotes self-defence while increasing fitness

Are you looking for a way to work off those extra few pounds you gained over Christmas? Maybe you want to boost your energy levels naturally, especially during the long dark months of winter. Perhaps you have resolved to finally get fit, get in shape and increase your confidence.

Are you looking for a way to work off those extra few pounds you gained over Christmas? Maybe you want to boost your energy levels naturally, especially during the long dark months of winter. Perhaps you have resolved to finally get fit, get in shape and increase your confidence.

If so then Hung Gar Kung Fu more than fits the bill.

This is a complete Martial Art that has very practical self-defence properties and also increases overall levels of fitness, regardless of the fitness levels of new students, and also increases self-esteem and confidence. For those who persevere the results of constant training and application of techniques are more than worth the initial pain of sore and tired limbs.

If interested give Chris Dougliss a call on 087-6244449. There are no membership or gym fees, you pay as you go, and if you want some one-on-one private training this can also be arranged at a mutually convenient time.

Chris Dougliss has well over 30 years experience in learning and teaching Kung Fu. He became proficient at Lau Gar Kung Fu, attaining Black Belt status before progressing to Hung Gar Kung Fu, which is a very traditional style, known for its low stances, hard blocks and furious attacks.

Chris ran the successful Hung Gar Kung Fu Club in Clonmel for 5 years before work and time constraints forced him to forego this project. However most of the students from the club continued to train in his purpose-built kwoon, or school, at his home.

Anyone is welcome to come and join the club on Wednesday and Friday evenings at 7pm, the only condition being that you come with an open mind and be willing to push yourself close to your limits.
