Chinese Martial Arts Club

Winthrop's Chinese Martial Arts Association (CMA) teaches both internal and external forms of martial arts. Internal arts focus on developing the mind and spirit, as well as controlling the energy within the body. Internal arts are usually slower and more fluid in movement, but don’t be deceived by its simplistic beauty; internal forms of martial arts are still an effective form of self-defense. CMA teaches two internal styles: Tai Chi and Baguazhang.

External styles tend to be more physically-oriented, meaning harder blocks, punches and kicks. External styles focus on intense conditioning and strength training. These exercises help the practitioner withstand fearsome strikes and perform athletic physical acrobatics. As of now, CMA teaches two external styles, Meihuazhuang and Shaolin. Shaolin has many subdivisions which include animal styles. Styles like Praying Mantis, Snake and Tiger are still Shaolin. Each style has its own particular techniques and philosophies based on the style.
