Jungshin Sword Workout
Gather your team for a group fitness experience that uses a wood sword and martial arts-based movements to train the body to develop strength, agility and control in a way that no other workout does. You'll use a sword as an extension of your core to start and stop in different strike positions while integrating different stances. The rhythmic use of a sword also has a meditative effect - enabling a focused mind. This class is led by Jungshin Fitness creator Annika Kahn who is a 3rd degree black belt and 4-time world grand champion in the Korean art of Kuk Sool Won.
Group Size: Any
What's Included: Instructor-led session
Good to Know: Swords can be engraved for an additional $20/person.
The class was fantastic fun. I channeled my internal martial artist and had a fantastic time swinging my sword all over my living room. It was more meditative than I thought it would be, and better exercise as well. :) The icing on the cake was the personalized sword which was engraved with personal names, company name and our team slogan and was shipped to each individual on our team. I own a lot of Silicon Valley swag, and this is my favorite." - Karthik (San Francisco, CA)
