Wing Tjun 'Kung Fu 4 Kids' & Teens Wing Tjun

An excellent example of the IWKA Kids program from one of our affiliate schools in Hong Kong.

The children of the present day lead very different lives than we did twenty or thirty years ago. In the modern day, too many children spend their childhood in front of a screen whether it be surfing the internet or watching television. Physical exercise is neglected, and this is a sad reality for many as it affects the overall health and development of their growing bodies.

Children are also exposed to much more graphic and violent images than ever before. It is no wonder that yet still sad to think these children may grow up experiencing behavioral problems which exacerbate into a host of other problems. 

We realize that it is no longer enough to teach children the physical skills of martial arts – in fact, this is no longer relevant in our modern society. As violence has evolved, we have had to evolve our approach to preventing and managing it. Essentially, we do not need to teach children how to fight; we need to teach them to identify potential violent and dangerous situations, how to avoid or de-escalate them, and only as a last resort, use physical power to protect themselves. 

A good chance to create balance and therefore a higher quality of life for children is martial arts training. Through a physically demanding workout that improves students’ condition and coordination and sharpens the senses, children are taught self-defense in a safe and friendly environment while under constant competent supervision.

This is how, by playing, they become able to assess potentially dangerous situations and to take measures to avoid them. Through role-play, where instructors imitate the aggressor, students are shown ways to put up verbal and bodily barriers, to call for help when in need and to effectively defend themselves when the latter is no longer possible.

The children learn to know their bodies’ limits and are taught ways to direct their energy on reasonable paths. Moreover, children’s self assertion and character development is worked upon in great depth.

Our program’s goal is to promote activity, safety and confidence in children. A combination of violence prevention and de-escalation skills make up the Kungfu for kids program, along with an effective self defense technique based on Wing Tjun Kung Fu.
