5 Intermediate Skill Kung Fu Poses

Kung Fu Poses serve as a classic display behavior, but they are also a fun, healthy way to develop your body and resistance to pain without incurring injury.  In a day in and day out training across years, variety in the process becomes important to keeping your interest high, and to mixing it up for your body.
