For Immediate Release 7/8/2022 Local Kung Fu Temple Offering Free Lessons During July to Those Affected by the Highland Park Shooting Highland Park, IL – 7/8/2022 – Beginning Monday, July 11, the Temple of Kung Fu, located in Highland Park at 36 Skokie Valley Rd., is showing support for its community by offering free Kung Fu lessons until July 31 to anyone who attended the parade or lives in the Highland Park community. The complementary lessons are sponsored by The Way Institute, a local non-profit aimed at changing the world by helping people to conquer fear, will begin with a welcoming open house from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. this upcoming Monday, July 11, with classes offered Monday through Thursday from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., Friday from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. All ages are welcome.
Lessons will be taught by Sifu Richard Baron, owner of Temple of Kung Fu, and his team, who have marched in the 4th of July parade for the last 10 years and ran towards the gunfire to assist in getting people to safety and provide aid. “Here, we fight every day to empower people with the ability to confront violence themselves and realize that you don’t have to be afraid,” said Sifu Baron. “We want to help our community heal and make sure they feel empowered.” Kung Fu, and martial arts in general, allows you to understand and develop a good relationship with power, helps to express emotions, and to set and maintain boundaries. And having the skill set can be a useful tool during the healing process.
