Nowadays, it main function is as a competitive sport, spectacular in content, involving high kicks, gymnastics, explosive martial techniques and is very good for mental discipline. Choreographed routines have been developed to perform at demonstrations, competitions and for film/TV. Routines are open hand or with weapons. The performance is a spectacular show.

San Shou/Quinda

San Shou - combines boxing with Kung Fu, as a competitive sport is on a Lei Tai, which is a raised platform made of steel and wood. Measuring 24 square feet x 2 foot high, it is surrounded by and covered with thick matting, where the students aim to score a point by softly punching or kicking their partner above the belt, attempting to get their partner off the Lei tai or taking them down to the floor. Students wear protective padding. If no Lei Tai is available, matting is placed on the floor, for safe training. 
Quinda - as above. No head contact.  

Mindful Movement 

Mindful Movement - Gentle movements, stretching and breathing exercises using Tai Chi, an internal Chinese Martial Art practiced with slow movements for both health benefits as well as self-defence. Medical research has found evidence that tai chi is helpful for improving balance, flexibility, strength, coordination, sleeping patterns, reducing stress and for general psychological health, and that it is associated with general health benefits in older people. It is also typically practiced for a variety of other personal reasons: its hard and soft martial art technique, demonstration competitions, and longevity.

Chinese Lion Dance

Coming soon 

Lion & Dragon dance - traditional dance in Chinese Culture in which performers mimic a lion's movements in a lion costume. Performed at important occasions such as business opening events, special celebrations or wedding ceremonies, or may be used to honor special guests. Often mistakenly referred to as dragon dance. An easy way to tell the difference is that a lion is normally operated by two dancers, while a dragon needs many people. Also, in a lion dance, the performers' faces are only seen occasionally, since they are inside the lion. In a dragon dance, the performers' faces can be easily seen since the dragon is held on poles.
