I stopped going to classes when I started college. I practice on my own but its not the same. Now I have the opportunity to go to a club for free, but have gotten in the habit of not practicing Kung Fu.
No excuses not to get started again! 4 years ago
I commited myself to recover my health after the heart operation and finally started to practice again.
Changed the style from ton lon chuan to north shaolin also.
Feelin’ good! 5 years ago
In fact, I didn’t gave up. I was prohibited by cardiologist. You see, I’ve endured a heart surgery early this year and there are some things I just can’t do no more. Smoking, for once. And kung-fu.
Blimey! 6 years ago
Spent almost a year training, had more fun than most anything i had done in a long time. was constantly complimented on how easy i made it all looked and how quickly i picked up on everything. moved away, can’t find a sifu or style combination worth my time in my new area. 6 years ago
I used to play handball. Paulista Federation, the whole nine yards. Then my knee became jelly.
Kung fu appeared when I was already thorugh with the treatment (and 10Kg fatter). Boy, I started going 2 times a week and when I had to stop (moved, my money wasn’t enough) I was like, practicing 7 hours a week.
Last year I had my knee fixed (cirurgic procedure) and I’ll sure go back to kung fu as soon as my md says I can. 7 years ago
I stopped training Kung fu here in São Paulo about 3 years ago. I practiced for about 10 months and, without any doubts, that was the healthiest time of my life.
I really enjoyed doing all the katas. And the exercising was just great!
But I fear that it isn’t for me. As soon as the sifu decided that we were ready to start fighting practices something snapped in my head: “hey, wait a second… I never wanted to learn how to beat someone! I just wanted the exercise!”.
A week or so later I left the classes.
But I really miss the Katas and the exercise.
Does anyone know about a strictly-katas style of kung fu? Anyone? I thought so… :) 7 years ago
