Sun Hang Do Is Geared To Families

We started our daughter in Sun Hang Do martial arts training classes after an instructor from the local Sung Hang Do studio came into her classroom and did an introductory martial arts presentation for the students in her class. She brought home the informational pamphlet and was very excited. She really wanted to try this out.

Our daughter, pictured here with her friend who also takes Sun Hang Do classes, is nine going on ten and she is overweight for her age and height. She's not really been all that interested in developing physical fitness through sports or athletics beyond casual swimming and bike riding. Like many kids in the so called "wired" (to the TV, internet) generation, she's more interested in sitting in front of a computer screen or playing with gadgets vs physical activity. So, we were absolutely thrilled when she said she wanted to join Sun Hang Do. While it may not be the least expensive of sports for kids, it is the only physical activity our daughter has expressed such great interest in.

She was allowed to take classes for a week to see if she still wanted to join, and she did. We did what we had to with our budget in order to come up with the money to enroll her and pay the monthly fees. We felt it was the perfect opportunity to help our child lose weight, gain strength, learn the art of self-defense, and, have fun doing a physical activity (that was her idea), at the same time.

After she'd been to a few classes, I could tell my hubby was quite interested too. His eyes lit up at the prospect of training in martial arts again, as he took karate classes for a time when he was a teen. We were impressed to discover that parents could train in the program for half the price and that there was even a family based class where they could train together. So we signed him up too and now the whole family is enjoying the program. While I myself am not training in the program, I have two novice teachers who are happy to share with me what they are learning. And I love to sit and watch the classes too.

Century Bob Opponent Quiz

The reasons for using an artificial opponent in martial arts training are pretty obvious (full power is not utilized during sparing practice between trainees for safety reasons) but Century Bob is fashioned after an actual human anatomy-wise for good reason.
