BxBy is delighted to announce it has been appointed to assist with the launch of Animal Fu, a new children’s fitness and dance concept based on Martial Arts.  This character-based activity for 3 to 7 year-olds has been developed by Linda Hall, a qualified Chinese Martial Arts instructor, in collaboration with CHF Media Group, the multi-BAFTA award-winning organisation synonymous with high quality children’s entertainment. The launch event will be held at Everyone Active Westminster Lodge, St. Albans, Hertfordshire this Spring.

Team FuAnimal Fu creates the building blocks of physical fitness, balance, flexibility, stamina and good all-round co-ordination. It combines the best of Linda’s Martial Arts training with animal characters, music-led activities, signature moves, stories, sounds and collectible merchandise, to create an original, engaging activity that supports child health and well-being and encourages fitness, friendship and fun. 

Animal Fu’s philosophy is all about teaching children to understand the importance of the values needed for leading a healthy and respectful life.  Each of the five Animal Fu characters - Master Storky, Boris the Tiger, Mabu the Monkey, Patsy the Bear and DJ Fin the Grasshopper -  has a core value and message to share, from calmness and focus, to strength and confidence.

Commenting on the forthcoming launch, Animal Fu founder Linda Hall said: “I am passionate about teaching child fitness, health and well-being and am now seeking like-minded fitness leaders to join our Fu Academy. This is not only an excellent learning activity but great fun too. It is very rewarding to see how much young children really ‘love to do Animal Fu’ and I’m looking forward to introducing my Fu ‘friends’ to the St. Albans community.  With the support of my partners at CHF Media, we are set to bring Animal Fu to even more Everyone Active leisure centres during 2018 so we anticipate an exciting St. Albans launch followed by a busy year ahead.”

Recruitment of qualified fitness or dance instructors for the Everyone Active (Westminster Lodge) launch is now underway.  All instructors will receive personal training by Linda Hall in February.  Those interested in joining the Fu Academy are invited to contact Linda Hall.
