Values & Principals
The values & principals taught by Grandmaster Yin are held at our studio. While the physical practice of Kung Fu
is important, also is the developement of character with honesty, kindness and good intentions.
The 'Art of Kung Fu' studio maintains the three purposes of martial arts, as instructed by Grandmaster Yin.
These are: Kung Fu is to be done for strong health and the development of character, to express the art and
beauty of the movement, and thirdly for the defense applications.
What is Qigong? (Qi Gong/Chi Gong)
A series of slow movements which are done to deep breathing for the purpose of stimulating energy, increasing
chi flow and oxygen deep in your system, improving health and circulation, and deepening relaxation ability.
What is Tai Chi?
Tai Chi is a series of slow motion, continual movements which teach relaxation, developing balance,
body posture, flexibility; and works to improve health throughout the body as circulation is improved
and muscle tone is increased.
What is Shaolin?
This style of Kung Fu is a faster, more aerobic series of movement which not only teaches self defense, but also promotes the body to function at a more effiecient rate, developes muscle tone and mass, and increases the
delivery of fluid motion and reflexes. This style encompasses open hand styles, many weapon styles, as well as ‘double styles’ which are fighting interactions.
The ‘Art of Kung Fu’ Studio was founded
by Cindy Martinez in 2002 for the purpose of providing
an environment for the continued practice of Chinese Kung Fu, which was taught to us by Grandmaster Chian Ho Yin.
His martial arts system which is very extensive and developed,
has deep historical roots originating in China.
We are privileged to pass down this unique system of martial arts.
