SANDA KICKBOXING

Sanda (sometimes seen as “Sanshou”) is a Chinese form of freestyle combat sport kickboxing and is a system of self-defense trained by the chinese military. Sanda is a martial art which was originally developed on the study and practices of traditional Wushu (Kung Fu) and modern combat fighting techniques.

It combines full-contact kickboxing, which include punches and kicks, with wrestling, takedowns, throws, sweeps, kick catches, and even elbow and knee strikes. In competition, Sanda traditionally takes place on a leitai; a raised platform, similar to a boxing ring without the ropes around it.

Through a mix of dynamic warm ups, pad and bag work, solo and partner drills, and basic conditioning exercises Sanda helps to develop and improve stamina, increase flexibility, power and strength, Balance and Coordination, and mental health. It is suitable for men and women of all fitness levels and backgrounds.

SHUAI JIAO WRESTLING

Shuai Jiao is a traditional Chinese wrestling martial art used to throw or take down an opponent. This art shares many similarities with other wrestling styles and is a major influence of Japanese Jujitsu, Judo and Aikido.

The foundation and basic principles of Shuai Jiao are based on traditional Chinese martial arts and adapted for combat training. Shuai Jiao techniques and principles are very simple, effective and most importantly, quick. Because of its speed and effectiveness, an opponent often does not have a chance to counter. Shuai Jiao is an art that does not rely on muscular strength alone, it always emphasizes avoiding direct impact with an opponent’s power and emphasizes getting close to an opponent quickly and using the opponent’s power against themselves. Because of its effectiveness, Shuai Jiao has been trained along with all styles of Chinese martial arts and is one of the four major elements in traditional Chinese fighting.

From a technical point of view Shuai Jiao shares some similarities with traditional wrestling and other arts but, Shuai Jiao’s training techniques, basic principles, applications and purposes are distinctively different from other styles. These differences give Shuai Jiao it’s distinctive and unique characteristics and feel.
