First Day of Kung Fu

Each day we walk or bike to school, we pass a bunch of activity in San Francisco’s second Chinatown along Clement St. One place on the route is the Tat Wong Kung Fu Academy. Mama noticed my interest in Ninjas and asked if I wanted to check out Kung Fu. I went and got a private lesson to learn some basic moves and then was invited back to a class.

At class, I joined other kids from a little smaller than me to a couple years older (and bigger). We warmed up with a follow the leader activity. Then we learned kicks, punches and positions for kung fu. I like how each move has a sound that goes along with it.

Class is recommended 2 times per week for 5-6 months. I am hoping to get started on classes after my trip to Atlanta next week.

I also got lessons in the basic principles behind Kung Fu. We checked out a book on Kung Fu from the library. I’m excited to learn more! It’s teaching me:

  • Respect
  • Patience
  • Determination

so I can have a proper attitude for study.

Papa asked me about my Kung Fu identity. I’m a Kung Fu Frog (that eats pollen and bananas!).
