Lishi was originally an ancient Chinese Family system taught by the Li Family.
It was passed on from father or mother to son or daughter.
The practice of this ancient Art is a way to teach children key life skills such as confidence, discipline, and respect.
Our system of soft kungfu founded on Daoist principles of working with nature will nurture active, healthy, happy children. It will develop their mental focus, physical dexterity and emotional stability while having fun:-)!
The class structure provides a strong foundation of discipline, etiquette and mutual respect.
Cultivation of your child’s mind and spirit by learning principles of humility, compassion, courage and perseverance will help to ensure your child develops into a little warrior….as well as mature, well-rounded and responsible young person.

Benefits of Lishi
Lishi is a soft system with its emphasis on precision and body mechanics rather than brute strength.
It is an ideal exercise art for children.
Regular training will not only teach your child the basics of self-defence, it will also greatly improve their coordination and reflexes, thus enhancing their overall fitness and health.
All our instructors are DRB checked and have been teaching in Lishi for over 10 years.
