We are a small group of people, young and old, that love bullwhips and whip cracking! We welcome anyone that wants to learn the sport of whip cracking.
Every 3rd Sunday of each month (unless otherwise noted), we host a free whip-artistry practice session .This monthly meetup allows for members to practice and hone their skills and allows first timers a chance to get introduced to the whip cracking and whip artistry. Contrary to what many would think, whip cracking is NOT like snapping a towel! As with martial arts, to properly crack the whip, a level of good form, relaxation, and attention to detail are needed.
Our lessons and practices focus on the key elements of whip handling, single and multiple crack routines, targeting, and martial application of the bullwhip. (the whip falls into the "flexible weapons" category of martial arts weaponry).
Come by to one of our free practices and check it out! We have some whips for beginners to borrow, but please contact us via the "contact us" page before showing up to a session.
Private instruction outside of the monthly meetups are available by our coach, Restita Dejesus. Private instensives are $50 per session and held at her martial arts Studio, Seattle Wushu Center. Contact her on the "contact us" page for more details.
