Interested in an art of avoidance- are there books or teachers available in the U.S that teach Lee Kwan Choo?

Kung Fu, form of Chinese boxing that involves karate-like kicks and jumps in a more acrobatic form, with additional techniques not found in karate.

There is no specific age for learning kung fu.But you must take note of your previous wounds and injured areas because there are the most vulerable parts when learning this. Also, if you think kung fu is too vigourous, you may even try karate or tae kwon do which are other popular choices of martial arts.

It is also important for you to find an excellent teacher.
Don't hesitate. Take it now!
