This class is a playful and energetic hour and is taught in such a way as to awaken your latent aptitude for natural movements and remind you of the play you enjoyed as a child.
The techniques offered will help you reclaim the spacial awareness and natural movement that we have long forgotten in our modern world of paved roads and elevators. By training in the Martial Method you will see an increase in the overall quality of your life.

Most of our training at Wuji Systems is classified as Yang. Strong, hard workouts, high intensity, so we all need to slow things down for both our body and mind. This is why Yin Yoga is an important addition to our curriculum. Our Yin class focuses on the hips and lower back using a minimal amount of poses and holding for a maximum amount of time in stillness. Meditative and restorative this class is what keeps our students vital and ready to train the next day.
We have numerous parks in Vancouver close to our training studio, but we also have the highest level of drug addicts living on the streets and parks. We offered a MovNat class last year but had to move indoors due to the unfortunate amount of needles in public parks. As a result we have created an indoor movement based training class. This class combines the fundamentals of MovNat with Kung Fu in an entirely new system that centres around 7 animals found within British Columbia. As Kung Fu is based on animals in China we found it appropriate to follow this template but reimagine it as residents of this beautiful land. Bear, Cougar, Wolf, Eagle, Snake, Orca and Raven are the animals in this system and for each animal there are exercises, movement drills, stretches, meditations, qigong and self defence. This is a complete system and will keep you limber, healthy and strong.
