We have just relocated to our new Kung-Fu San Soo location at 7826 Balboa blvd., in Van Nuys. We have classes for children, adults, teens, special needs, and we specialize in self-defense classes for women. Kung-Fu San Soo is the perfect self-defense art for all ages. At Kung-Fu San Soo in Van Nuys we teach kids how to defend themselves from two perspectives. The fiirst is how to deal with kids in school who might try to bully them and the second is how to deal with adults who might try to attack them or kidnap them. When kids are at young ages such as 5 through 12, it is not practical for them to try to go toe to toe against an adult. They must learn how to quickly cause pain in vulnerable areas of the body and then escape their wood be attacker.
Our classes for special needs kids and adults are for all types of conditions. We work with Autism/Aspergers, Cerebral Palsy, Fragile X Chromosome, Mental Retardation to name a few. If the students are high functioning then they can participate in the general classes. If not, then we set up one-to-one sessions. The goal is to prepare the student to move into the general classes.
Our wonem’s self-defense training is unique. Kung-Fu San Soo teaches the student how to use their full body weight when executing a technique. These tecniques are designed to strike vulnerable points of the body. Because Kung-Fu San Soo is a five family system, it covers punches, kicks, flips, throws, sweeps, pressure points, leverage and power. This gives women so many options when attacked. Women through their anatomy have some advantages that men do not have. For example, because their rib cage narrows at the top they can extricate themselves from a full nelson simply by raising their arms and dropping down to the ground thus freeing them to punch up to the groin and kicking to the face. In a man the rib cage is wider at the top and forms a V shape which prevents them from being able to drop down. Women tend to be more relaxed then men which makes it easy for them to use full power when defending themselves. Men tend to be more rigid and take longer in learning how to relax.
