West Gate offers programs in three distinct traditional Chinese martial arts:
Mizong Luohan (My Jhong Law Horn) – a physically-demanding Northern Shaolin Kung Fu style characterized by deep stances, high leaps, and nimble skips for the application of fast, powerful strikes and throws while in motion. Develops a sophisticated sense of footwork, timing and distance, strong lean muscles, and lungs that go on for miles.
Wu Style Taijiquan – a gentle internal art for longevity and the redirection of oncoming force. While it appears slow and easy, taijiquan’s hidden intricacies require significant concentration and develop a keen sensitivity for the movement of energy in the body. Excellent for adults of all ages.
Fu Style Baguazhang – a complex internal art involving circular, coiling, and cyclonic movements for unexpected strikes and throws. Develops intricate core-muscle control and fluidity, and strengthens joints, ligaments, and tendons through its characteristic circle-walking practice.
