Sanshou (Sanda) Study & Training Course in China
Learn and train in Sanshou or Sanda (Chinese Kick Boxing) with SCIC in China! Sanshou is a modern form of full contact Wushu based on the tradition of martial arts. Attack is the essence of Wushu. In Sanshou contestants compete with such techniques as kicking, hitting and wrestling under certain regulations. Fighters are permitted to use both hands and feet, which facilitates flexible moves and strikes.
This course focuses on learning basic training methods and techniques such as punching, kicking, grasping and throwing. Suitable for both beginners and advanced students, this course is ideal for students looking to improve their level and learn how to teach Sanshou the Chinese way. If you love fighting and combat sports, or if you are looking for a self-defense course, this is the choice for you!
