Winnipeg Kung Fu Lessons
For Teens 12-17

Kung FuThis hybrid program continues with the Duo Ji Kung Fu curriculum found in the Kids Program but with additional dynamic movement and philosophies from Bruce Lee’s martial art, Jeet Kune Do. Students still have developmental movements from the Kids Kung Fu Program, but they also have the performance enhancing movements from JKD added to their curriculum. The result is a class built specifically for teens that will allow them to continue their growth.

Classes work on the developmental needs of teenage students, working to increase their overall athleticism, focus, and confidence. They train in a positive environment that encourages creativity and discovery through the exploration of movement without the fear of “getting it wrong”. In order to learn, one must make mistakes.

Teen Kung Fu

Exercise and meditation allow the Teen students to better manage the hormonal shifts associated with puberty. In this class, they will be guided through exercises that will allow them to discover their own potential through their own efforts. The Teen program works with students to help give them the tools they need to combat life. The movements are just tools to help the individuals grow more confident in the use of their physical and mental abilities, increasing the strength of both. These students are practicing for the near future when they are considered adults and will likely be transitioning into an environment outside of their parents’ home.

Classroom Experience

When you come to Evolution Martial Arts for class, you are welcomed into a positive learning environment by friendly students. After changing into your indoor athletic shoes and attire, class officially begins with all students lining up to perform a simple bow-in to the instructor. Over the hour you will receive professional Jeet Kune Do instruction applied to realistic real world applications. Instruction consists of JKD philosophy, demonstrations, drills and practicing movements with other students and the instructor. Class sizes are kept small and intimate so every student can receive appropriate instructor one-on-one time. At the conclusion of class, all students line up and are given an opportunity to ask questions, then a final bow-out is performed to conclude the session.

Your safety is paramount! All movements and drills done in the safest manner possible, at your own pace and ability. Depending on subject matter, classes can be extremely cardio intensive, so be sure to have a change of clothes and always bring a bottle of water. 

 All equipment is provided for the class, except mouth guards. Students are welcome to bring their own instructor approved punching / finger gloves. 

Student Goals

It's our goal for you to enhance your physical health and abilities through the challenges of physical exercises used in class, which are a necessity in any self defense situation. Through examining your own movements for self improvement, you will gain a heightened level of mental focus that will lead to a greater internal confidence from the new skills you acquire from progressively more challenging drills. With this investment, you will have a new perspective on problem solving by applying core JKD principles and by exploring the fusion of philosophy and movement, allowing you to live a fuller life to take on any challenge.
