Self-discipline, perseverance, work ethic, cooperation, confidence. These are all valuable tools that allow people both young and old to reach their goals and live more successful lives. No matter who you are or what you are trying to achieve, there is virtually no one who would not benefit from the physical and mental empowerment that comes from training in the martial arts.
Chinese martial arts place a strong emphasis on the necessary connection between our minds and our bodies. Apart from training in practical self-defense tools, students of Kung Fu strive to achieve a deeper balance in their overall mental, physical and spiritual health. The physical applications of kicks, blocks, strikes, throws and locks are just a part of the overall practice of Kung Fu.
The ancient practitioners of Kung Fu understood the importance of the body working in line with the mind. Our ability to make quick decisions, act or react in dangerous situations and defend ourselves with confidence depends on how well these two function together. Kung Fu seeks to help students achieve that balance on the mat so they can carry it with them in their daily lives.
Kung Fu and other styles of martial arts are much more than just workout programs. They provide students with a framework for preparing their minds and bodies for self-defense. The mental and physical benefits of a Kung Fu practice can be seen across all age groups and fitness levels. Children, teens and adults from any background can all find some aspect of Kung Fu that can help them better themselves in all of their pursuits.

Rather than focus on one style of martial arts, a mixed martial arts program combines several different styles into one well-rounded system of self-defense. Students will learn strikes, kicks and ground techniques from disciplines such as Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Jiu Jitsu, Kickboxing, Boxing, Wrestling and many more. This style of training provides students with the most effective and practical methods of defending themselves in any situation and against any opponent.
Functional martial arts are meant to be applied in real world scenarios, not just in the studio. The program taught at SwiftKick Carlsbad is based on one of the most practical self-defense and combat systems in the world.
