Jasper Kung Fu Martial Arts Academy opens | Business
Jasper Kung Fu is now open for business at 504 3rd Ave. Founded by Brad Freeman, who has been practicing Wing Chun Kung Fu for almost a decade, Jasper Kung Fu offers a family-oriented approach to martial arts. While many martial arts schools are focused on fighting for fighting sake alone, Jasper Kung Fu is focused on strategies that give students both a physical and mental advantage in both Kung Fu, and in life.
"At Jasper Kung Fu, our mission is to assist students in achieving their specific goals, whether they be fitness, focus, confidence or self-defense goals. Our real aim is to help students increase the quality of their lives and this can be done through the discipline of Kung Fu," said Freeman.
Jasper Kung Fu focuses on the Wing Chun form of Kung Fu. It is a pure war art from Southern China that combines defense and neutralization of the enemy using the least possible energy. Kept secret for centuries, it was revealed to the Western World through Bruce Lee.
Wing Chun Kung Fu is suitable for men, women and children. It is a concept based system teaching a better and smarter way to stand up to bigger and stronger opponents. Wing Chun Kung Fu does not require greater strength because students learn to use their minds in combination with their opponent’s strength, which results in the ultimate advantage of balance, power and speed.
Jasper Kung Fu offers both a Basic Training Program and an Advanced Training Program. The Basic Training Program is designed to provide a fun martial arts curriculum for beginners while instilling the positive, life-changing benefits of the Chinese martial arts traditions: respect for others, self-confidence, courtesy, obedience, humility, perseverance, honesty, integrity, and self-control. The Basic Training Program at Jasper Kung Fu emphasizes goal-setting and positive reinforcement of success habits to help students develop their fitness, self-reliance, and self-defense skills.
The Advanced Training Program available is specifically designed for those who have a long-term goal of earning a black belt. Advanced Program students learn all the required forms, self-defense, and free-sparring techniques to earn their 1st degree black belt certification.
"Our proven training methods assist our students in achieving confidence and discovering their own true potential in both a mental and physical capacity," said Freeman.
