Back to Activities

Cambridge Kung Fu is an organisation that teaches martial arts to adults, young people and children. Their aim is to enhance the lives of their students through martial arts and mindful movement practice.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • The classes support students to develop four fundamental skills which can help support a healthier and more meaningful life: Awareness, Focus, Resilience, and Integration.
  • Taking part in physical activity can improve physical health and mental wellbeing;
  • The classes are fun and social.

What to expect 

Cambridge Kung Fu run several weekly adult classes in two martial arts – Wing Chun Chuan and Escrima Concepts. These adult classes are for people aged 16 and over. They also run youth classes in Wing Chun Kung Fu and Escrima Concepts for young people aged between 11 and 16.

For children of Primary School age, Cambridge Kung Fu run a structured programme of classes: ‘Tiny Tigers’ for children in Reception and Year 1,  ‘Little Dragons’ for children in years 2 and 3 and ‘Junior Warriors’ for children in years 4 to 6. These classes have a focus on learning through play. Students in the two higher levels also learn about a particular martial art each term, and are graded on a forms (sequence of moves) based on that martial art.

Cambridge Kung Fu also run a class called Snow Leopards for children and young people with additional needs. It is a class of mixed age and abilities.

All staff and volunteers at Cambridge Kung Fu are DBS checked and all class leaders are first aid trained.
