Our Teens Club is part of the world renowned YMAA Ireland banner, we have classes and a flexible schedule suitable to meet the health, self defence and social needs of 12 - 17 year old boys and girls.
Kung Fu 4 Teens opened it's doors in September of 2009, having already run successful programs for children and Adults (est. 1984) we found that our older Kung Fu Kids were caught between making their way into the Adults classes (somewhat prematurely!) or staying in the more advanced classes of our Kung Fu 4 Kids club (not ideal or an attractive prospect for our young adults!).
We found it difficult to offer a suitable place for any new members between the ages of 12 and 17 and turned many budding Martial artists off and away from our club. As much as we tried to accommodate them in whatever classes they choose we unfortunately lost allot of members and allot of talent during this time.
We recognised that this age group needed something different to make the prospect of taking up a martial art or continuing their earlier training an attractive one.
This age group now have own club with a training and social program designed especially for them. Our Teen members teenagers will feel challenged, learn responsibility, progress efficiently through the
grading program and develop confidence and find themselves belonging to a group of like minded, focused and driven people.
The club offers a positive environment filled with great role models and mentors to help them through the formative teenage years. We have taken the fun aspect of the Kung Fu 4 kids program and combined it with the traditional Shaolin Kung Fu, Self defence programs and the combat sport of San shou. The club has been a resounding success and simply a great place for our members to hang out at our Deansgrange club.
The club ethos is one of fun while at the same time developing their physical, mental and social well being. Our program combines the best of Yang's Martial Arts Association (a world famous martial arts organisation headed by Master Yang, Jwing Ming), realistic Self defence and the sports of ‘San shou' and Brazilan Jujitsu.
With regular fitness tests balanced with Pizza days, movie nights, training camps, competitions, regular gradings and the chance to train abroad we are more than just martial arts club.
Take a look at our club schedule and come along for a free class. We look forward to meeting you.
