Jianfa, meaning "Sword Method", is the Chinese Art of Swordsmanship. It involves the study and practice of basic cuts, solo forms, two-person drills and free swordplay.

It is great for children! Jianfa engages their imagination, brings out their creativity and is great exercise.


Unlike sports, Jianfa is first and foremost a Martial Art. The whole practice is centred around discipline, structure and respect. This provides the perfect environment for children to develop socially, intellectually and physically.

Children learn the etiquette of swordplay in a fun and exciting way which gives them vital skills that will transfer into their home and school lives. Jianfa is the perfect way for a child to learn how to be a great friend and a valuable team player.

Discipline and Respect

Confidence and Self-Esteem

Balance and Co-Ordination

Like other forms of swordplay such as Fencing and Kendo, Jianfa also has a great competitive aspect. Children will regularly take part in free swordplay and competitive bouts with their peers. This provides a great opportunity for them to nurture their self-belief and build their confidence.

Exciting and fun, Jianfa is practised with safety in mind. Protective equipment is used at all times and children are taught from their very first lesson the importance of safety. This gives parents the peace of mind that their child will enjoy themselves whilst getting a genuine experience of Chinese swordsmanship.

Studying Jianfa is an amazing thing for any child to do. It’s fun, exciting and provides the perfect way to channel excess energy into a productive exercise that focuses the mind while teaching intuitive problem-solving. What more could you want for your child?

Excellent with kids from the very start, Sam has become much more confident with the more boisterous kids at school. Loves playing the games and has become very confident.
