Cuong Nhu is an evolving style that makes it easy and fun for people of all ages to learn - it is not for young athletes only. Our training program encourages physically disabled people to participate and advance at an individual pace. Our family-oriented environment is one more reason why Cuong Nhu is such an appealing art and sport.
When you begin training in Cuong Nhu, your introduction will consist of warmup exercises, stretching, stamina building, and practicing basic blocks, kicks, punches and stances. Through a choreographed series of movements called kata (or forms), you will practice body coordination with self-defense techniques. You have the option to test for promotion in rank when your instructor feels you are ready. Sparring and weapons are introduced later.
The philosophy of Cuong Nhu offers guidelines for training and provides direction which can be applied to all aspects of life. It enriches your life, your energy, your pride in accomplishment, and your mind, heart and spirit. Cuong Nhu does not replace or interfere with a person's religion or belief system.
