How long does it take to get a Black Belt?
The length of time it takes to get a Black Belt depends upon a number of factors, including: the style of Martial Arts being studied; how the curriculum is structured; the skill of the instructors; the training program the student chooses to follow; and the discipline, commitment and follow through of the student. Therefore, the range is between 3-7 years. At United Kung Fu, unlike many other Martial Arts schools, we have implemented a repetition and rotation structure to our curriculum. This means that you will have an opportunity to train certain parts of the curriculum on a regular basis; that you will be able to hone and refine what you have learned to make it better; and you will not forget what you have already learned as you continue to advance towards your Black Belt and Self Mastery.
What benefits would I receive from Training Kung Fu?
The benefits our students have received from their Kung Fu training are extensive, and include improved health and longevity; greater strength and endurance; an enhanced ability to persistent through challenges to accomplish a goal; better ability to focus and have stronger discipline; more emotional, mental and physical self-control; peace of mind; improved balance and coordination; increased confidence; greater courage; higher energy levels and more consistent energy; greater flexibility; better awareness and enhanced ability to defend oneself; more courtesy; greater self-respect and ability to respect others; and more integrity. With the younger students especially, they develop the attitude and skills to be more successful in their adult lives. The testimonials on our Website are only a small sampling of the hundreds of testimonials we have received from our students since we opened our Academy speaking into the benefits they have received and continue to receive from their training. They are truly inspiring. All of the benefits, including learning self-defense, do require consistent training over an extended period of time to manifest. They will not appear in your life overnight. The longer our students consistently train, the more benefits they experience. That is why we have so many students still training with us after 10 years or more. The benefits just keep on manifesting.
Do you have to be athletic to learn Kung Fu or Martial Arts?
No, you do not have to be athletic to be able to successfully learn Kung Fu with us. We have had students who have never done other athletics successfully train to Black Belt. We have had students with particular physical challenges train to their Black Belt. The depth of our experience, and the challenges that some of our Instructors have had to overcome in their own training helps us to be patient, and to find ways to help our students accomplish the techniques in a way that is safe for them, and still effective.
