What Will I Learn?

During the retreat, beginner students will learn the form Wu Xing Quan (Five Animals Boxing), whilst students with former Kung Fu experience can discuss with Master Wang which form they would like to learn.

Teaching during the retreat will not be focused just on learning movements, but rather on developing skill and gaining an in-depth understanding of the theory and application behind the material learnt.
