The University of Exeter's Kung Fu Society teaches Kung Fu, and practical self-defense in a fun and friendly environment.

We are hosting free taster sessions every morning during Freshers week, 9:30am - 11:30am Cornwall House. Mon-Tues-Weds in Room 1, Thurs-Fri in the Lemon Grove. Come along and see what it's all about, with the chance to try out Broad Sword, Straight Sword and Fist forms, as well as Wing Chung Kung Fu! There's also a demonstration in the Lemon Grove at 12pm - 2pm, for those who want to see a collection of the forms we know, including several learned in China on our annual summer trip to train there.

 

Cultivating Kung Fu is beneficial for fitness, coordination, muscle memory, self-awareness and body strength. It is an art, which is beautiful to watch as much as it aids in increasing the body's capacity for self-defence (training your mind as much as your body).

Sessions cover a variety of techniques, forms and pad-work. We are now offering beginnner and advanced lessons. Our training is also a great way to improve general fitness and gain flexibility.

Everyone is welcome and no experience is required! 

A large group of the society has just spent a month in DengFeng, China next to the Shaolin temple, training under a Shaolin monk. The forms and techinques we learnt during that time will be heavily guiding the sessions this year.

This trip will be repeated every year for people who are interested in learning Kung Fu in a truely authentic way.

We run lessons four times a week:

  • Monday: 18:00-20:00 (Power Training / Power Stretching)
  •  Wednesday: 18:00-20:00 (Shaolin Basics & Forms)
  • Friday :18:00-20:00 (Combat Styles - Sanda & Wing Chun)
  • Saturday : 12:00-16:00 (Weapons Classes)

We also offer occasional workshops with an external instructor.

Our membership fees are £20 for the year, £15 for returning members and £15 for new members who sign up with a friend.
