ST. ALBANS, HERTFORDSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, January 24, 2018 / -- Animal Fu, a new children's fitness and dance concept based on Martial Arts, is set to launch at Everyone Active Westminster Lodge, St. Albans, Hertfordshire this Spring. 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.

Animal 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.



About Linda Hall

Linda Hall, a qualified Chinese Martial Arts trainer, was accredited with her Masters in Zhaoqing, China. Following completion of her Martial Arts training, Linda established her first club called "Biaw Yian" (meaning performance of martial arts). Inspiration for Animal Fu came from her interaction with young children when teaching at schools and clubs, coupled with her own experience and extensive training inspired by Chinese Grand Master Leung Guo Qiang, famous throughout Southern China for his Wing Chun opera house style of Kung Fu.

Animal Fu Characters

Master Storky has a 'keep fit, can do' attitude. He believes that anyone can become what they wish to be in life by working hard, keeping fit and active and always believing in themselves. He helps youngsters stay calm and get fit using balance and breathing exercises.

Boris the Tiger likes to lunge and ROOOAAARRRRR, especially at bullies.

Mabu the Monkey focuses on diet and well-being. Born in South America, she is wise and knows that if you 'eat right you feel right'.

Patsy the Bear is from Texas and loves caring and sharing. Her special moves involve the side-steps she uses in line-dancing.

DJ Fin is a cool, streetwise grasshopper from Great Britain. He likes to jump to the beat and make others want to dance. He understands respect and takes good care of the world around him.
