CEDAR RAPIDS REVOLUTION MARTIAL ART STYLES

TANG SOO DO

The martial art of Tang Soo Do is relatively modern, but its roots lie in the ancient Korean art of Soo Bahk Do, which can be traced back many centuries. Tang Soo Do is a style composed from three major areas and styles, which are Soo Bahk Do (60%), Northern China Kung Fu (30%) and Southern China Kung Fu (10%). Literally translated, the word TANG means T’ang Dynasty of China which reflects the shared cultural background between China and Korea. SOO means hand, but it implies fist, punch, strike or defense. DO means way of life or art. Thus TANG SOO DO means the Korean classical martial art which was influenced by the T’ang method of martial art.

WING CHUN

Wing Chun is a truly amazing and beautiful Kung Fu style. It is one of the most practical martial art systems you can study. Wing Chun is a perfect art for the uncertainties of actual self-defense and combat. The system relies on biomechanics, not brute force. Wing Chun is a scientific yet theoretically based martial arts form. The specialty of a Wing Chun practitioner is close-range combat. Practitioners utilize well-coordinated angular deflections with simultaneous attacks. A Wing Chun practitioner is agile yet powerful, delivering quick, close-range punches and kicks rather than locks and grabs. Wing Chun is based on the concepts and principles of simplicity, economy of movement, and economy of energy.

SHAOLIN-DO

Shaolin-Do is an original blend of hard and soft arts, developing internal and external strength simultaneously. It doesn’t rely on body rigidity to develop power like Karate, but instead generates forces from natural body mechanics and circular movements.

TAI CHI

Tai Chi is an internal Chinese martial art often practiced for health reasons. Tai Chi forms are known for their slow movement. There are several styles of Tai Chi but the two most popular ones are Chen and Yang. Tai Chi Chuan literally means “supreme ultimate boxing” in Mandarin. The philosophy of Tai Chi is to meet violent force with softness. The theory is to be sensitive to the movement of your opponent and remain in physical contact with him and safely redirect his attack. Yang style Tai Chi, has basic mobility, hand and leg coordination and the 24 or 108 routines are practiced. After a certain proficiency has been reached the student will move on to Yang Tai Chi Sword, then eventually branch out into the older, more martial, Chen style. Advanced students will learn Wudang Straightsword.
