Kung fu (also called wushu) is a Chinese martial art emphasizing flexibility and the use of internal force. Chinese kung fu began in the
Shaolin Temple around 527 C.E. and is almost 2,000 years old. There are many different types of kung fu; some imitate animals such as
the dragon, snake, mantis or crane, while others are named for a type of movement, like the northern long fist routines. Kung fu
movements are circular and rely on internal force to generate power. Kung fu students are trained in striking with hands and feet, shuai
jiao close quarters grappling and chin na (joint-locking and manipulation). Intermediate and advanced students may receive instruction
in Chinese weapons including the staff, spear, broadsword, straight sword, halberd, etc. The kung fu program at the Wooster
Community Center provides instruction in traditional Pai Lum Tao kung fu. Our program is designed to accommodate students of all
ages and experience levels. No prior martial arts training is necessary. Family group participation is encouraged!

Tai chi chuan and qigong are Chinese internal arts focused on generating and channeling internal energy, or qi (pronounced “chee”),
throughout the body to generate force and promote health. The movements of tai chi and qigong are smooth, steady and circular. Tai chi
and qigong students are trained in breathing exercised, fluidity drills and qi-building exercises. The slower pace and more gentle
movements of tai chi and qigong routines make these arts particularly well suited for adults and seniors interested in increasing
flexibility, range of movement or lung capacity.
Instructor Biography

Wilson and a member in good standing of the Pai Lum Tao International White Dragon Warrior Society (W.D.W.S.). Sifu Joshua is the

Water exercise is a great way to get the benefits of a fitness workout without the sweat and usual injury risks.
It reduces the burden on stress-bearing joints and muscles making it less likely to cause injury or muscle
soreness. Water exercise burns calories, builds cardio endurance; and increases muscle strength, flexibility
and lung capacity. The movement of water against and over the body results in both massage and relaxation
providing a calming effect. It’s also more discreet than other forms of exercise because it’s performed under
water! So why wait--take the plunge! (This co-rec class is held in shallow water. Sandals or water shoes are
suggested for locker rooms.)

The following activities for people 50+ are free of charge and are held at the
Community Center. The regular participants would like to invite anyone interested to
join them for these exciting activities. If you would like to get out and meet great
people and enjoy an old favorite or learn a new hobby drop in and check these out!
