This Over That; Gung Fu

“Knowledge in martial arts actually means self-knowledge. ”
Bruce Lee

We encourage;

  • the individual over generic ‘one-size-fits-all’ martial arts systems
  • the student over the teacher
  • intrinsic motivation over extrinsic motivation *the journey, not the destination
  • personal power over group control
  • goal oriented strength and conditioning over generalized working out
  • reading over watching TV
  • minding our P’s and Q’s
  • bringing joy to interactions over emotional vampirism
  • opportunity for growth over failure
  • nutrition over ‘DIE’t
  • pre-emptive attack over reaction based ‘self-defence’
  • centerline over flanking
  • celebrating Self over hero-worshiping¬†historic figures in Gung Fu
