After about a month of (very) beginner Kung Fu lessons, I’m hooked. My hips hurt and I sweat more than anyone in the class, but I’m having a ball for some reason. It’s pretty suprising considering that I’m a sedentary beast and typically dislike things that are good for me. I’ve even got Jessica going now. After her second class she says it’s “a lot of fun.” Imagine that. From the school’s web site

“There are over twenty traditional hand forms, including tiger-crane, tiger-leopard, and the famous five animal form. Training includes an internal breathing form called Iron Wire Fist, which is used to strengthen muscles, organs and bones. Additionally, there are over eighteen weapons sets including batons, the staff, spear, three sectional staff, wind sword, whip chain and double edge straight sword.”
