Drawing into the roots of Chinese internal martial arts and with an intent to demystify the ancient style of Liuhebafa (六合八法), adults will learn how to maximize the effectiveness and adaptability of their body and mind in different situations. Participants will learn non-escalating skills that is essential in most social situations but also techniques with the intention to hurt the aggressor and therefore the full range from punching to kicking, pressure points, small joint manipulations, how to destabilize your opponent and more. Participants will improve on strength, endurance, awareness and overall fitness through forms, drills and interactive and integrated exercises.
