About KUDAYO Classes

Making it happen — for real

KUDAYO currently offers personal training, martial arts classes, and workshops for yourself or for your office. Check out the class descriptions below to find out more about what we offer.

KUDAYO Kung Fu

Four Classes in One
Yang Yoga  •  Kung Fu  •  Yin Yoga  •  KUDAYO Academy

The KUDAYO Kung Fu class is divided into three independent hour-long sessions and one alternate session held at a separate time/place, so you can choose what you want to train. You can enter and leave any session to tailor your own training. See class times 

The first hour is YANG YOGA, where you warm up and mentally prepare for kung fu training, but may be taken as a solo yoga class. $10
 

The second hour is KUNG FU, where you train in the art of self defense. $15 (price includes the mandatory Yang Yoga session immediately before)
 

The third hour is YIN YOGA, where we move into deep meditative stretch. $10 (may be taken as a solo class)

Collectively, this is treated as one three-hour class. $20 (price include all three sessions taken consecutively)

The fourth session, separate from the main class, is KUDAYO ACADEMY, where we move beyond martial arts and into complementary skills and intellectual pursuits. $10 (held at a separate place/time but part of the KUDAYO Kung Fu training).

Yin Yoga Flow

The Deepest, Most Thorough & Relaxing Stretch

Yin Yoga Flow is quite possibly the deepest, most thorough, and most relaxing stretch for your entire body available.

CREATE FOR YOURSELF HIGHER LEVELS OF LONG-TERM FLEXIBILITY.

Without strain or effort, simple poses stretch every joint throughout their full range of motion. In typical Yin Yoga style these poses are held softly for several minutes before flowing to the next. However, in typical KUDAYO style, the dancer's principle of stretching every transitional angle fills the flow between poses creating a completeness like no other stretch.

Increase long-term flexibility
 
Improve circulation and lymphatic system flow
 
Relax and relieve the day's stress
 
Sleep better

Ideal for post workout recovery or end-of-day relaxation.
NOT recommended prior to strenuous exercise.

KUDAYO Kung Fu

Achievement through great effort

KUDAYO Kung Fu embodies the meaning of "kung fu" — achievement through great effort — disciplined mind and body training to attain mastery of a chosen art; in this case, martial arts, and then some. We use the Taoist Five Elements and Yin-Yang/Taiji as metaphors to inform and organize our practice. This class is both practicle and academic. This is not a fitness class, but rather a study, a discipline for personal growth and ability; to defend, to self-control, to healthfulness, to artistic expression.

KUDAYO Kung Fu incorporates multiple martial arts styles, yoga, qigong, even some ballet, gymnastics, and parkour; openhand defense, hand weapons (jian sword, monkey staff, spear, monkey's fist, knife, sticks, found), ancient living skills/arts/crafts, history, philosophy, nutrition, etc. It is interactive, dynamic, and engaging. It takes a serious student to reap the benefits.
