     The Little Lion's Class is composed of 4 main elements of Chinese Kung Fu. The base of the Kung Fu System is The Lion (derived from the tiger style of Jow Ga) The Crane, and The Snake styles. These 3 styles leads them into the Wing Chun Kung Fu System that is a combination of Snake and Crane. Children will become proficient in weapons such as Nunchuks, Bo Staff, and The Chinese Broadsword.

     The Lion Style helps to develop your external energy. Using hands as if they were paws to swipe, claw, and strike your opponent, cat stance for mobility, and front stance for the extension of the power through your limbs. The legs become strong, increasing balance and flexibility in your lower extremities. 

          The Crane Style helps to develop internal energy. The Crane fly's above the pettiness of everyday life. It doesn't fight directly, it redirects, softens the blows, and attacks soft exposed parts of the body. The Crane is meant for the skies, utilizing it's legs for long range attacks and swiftness of mobility to avoid direct blows. Balance and fluidity through relaxation is key in this style.

          The Snake Style is patient, calculating, yet quick. In Chinese culture snakes are looked at as Baby Dragons. Moving among the surface of the earth, discreet, able to get in and out stealthily.  Though the snake is small it's speed and precision makes it deadly. The hands along with flexible stances are important tools for attacking from improbable angles. Snakes wrap and constrict their prey, immobilizing them until they submit, this is where Qin Na (joint and wrist locks / grappling) comes into play. 

The Little Lion's Class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays and costs start at a base price of $50 for 1 month, $130 for 3, $240 for 6 months, and $450 to cover an entire year.
