The ancient tradition of Chinese Boxing has its roots firmly placed in the instinct to survive during physical attack. The origins of Chinese boxing can be traced back to the famous Shaolin Temple. This martial discipline has existed for thousands and thousands of years and its influences can be seen in a great many martial arts forms. The Calasanz System incorporates many of the moves utilized in Chinese boxing, especially those related to the improvement of balance and establishing a solid footing.Chinese Boxing can be enjoyed as a series of repeated movements and simulated attacks and defensive moves in order to achieve an aerobic workout. It can also be used as an extremely effective fighting methodology.

Peter, who started training with Calasanz as a teenager at a boxing club in Greenwich, is one of his most accomplished fighters. The reason for Peter’s success is his proficiency in Chinese Boxing.

“The grounding and power that is generated from my Chinese Boxing training is tremendous,” says Peter. “The Chinese Boxing workout is a complete form of self defense and an effective way to train the entire body.”

Peter should know. As a 14 year old, Peter knocked out a grown man in a kickboxing competition. He attributes his success to Calasanz’s teaching method and his direction in applying Chinese Boxing techniques to the contemporary fighting arena.
