I am one of Annika's biggest fans! I started taking Jungshin Fitness about 8-10 years ago after playing amateur/competitive soccer for 28 years and I needed a new work out. What I love is that it is a great workout blending mind, body, breath and sword!

Annika is a dynamic and disciplined martial artist. Since 1994 she has been designing and choreographing important women’s self-defense routines for our tournament demonstrations. She is a world champion competitor and, in my opinion, is the best female practitioner of our art in the world.

Neuroscience has recently established the value of novel and complex movement for the brain. There is now no doubt that the lifelong practice of varied movement in the face of the risks inherent in a western sedentary lifestyle helps us fend off ill health and abnormal aging. Jungshin offers both novel and increasingly complex movement, as well as the benefits of aerobics, socializing, and competitive mindset, all of which have been likewise shown to benefit both body and brain.

Annika Kahn’s innovation is spreading globally, both because it is different to anything else out there, but also to the point of being entirely unique, providing the experience of both movement-fitness, but also the engagement of a fun and idiosyncratic martial art. Movement and thought are vitally connected, and so the enrichment offered by Jungshin is clear to it’s practitioners, and an exciting addition to the fitness world.

I am both surprised and delighted at the effects the Jungshin Fitness system has had on my body. My core strength is stronger then ever, my joints are more fluid, my reflexes sharp, I am more focused, and I have less pain and more energy since I have been with Annika. I have yet to find a more stimulating workout. I am having a blast with kick-boxing, bag punching, sword swirling,and more. The combination has me fully embodied with a greater alignment in my spine, a strong lower back, and an inner power that helps me move through my life with an easy breath and a peaceful presence. Annika has the ability to work with people at any level. I recommend my patients see her on a regular basis to get their core muscle groups working supporting the chiropractic adjustments as well as the way in which they more through their life.

Jungshin is a well-balanced and well-designed workout using wooden swords as levers to change the way this would feel and effect the body without swords. Annika Kahn designed the programs based on her immense experience in martial arts and understanding of the human body. The workout uses all the muscles in the body, trains the brain to a high degree, and moves the body in multiple planes to create the best effect on organs, connective tissue and the body overall. I love the workout, I do it myself weekly and I encourage anyone looking at this to understand why it was created, understand how it affects the body in so many positive ways and why the lever lengths (swords) are different and how that affects the body and the workout. Brilliant workout.

I first encountered Jungshin Fitness at SCW in Los Angels.

As I picked up the sword and started to move with the mindful meditative cutting we had been taught, my heart and my soul fell in love with Jungshin and I realized in that moment of “raising- the-sword”, that I needed to bring this wonderful program to our members at Synergy medical fitness center in Napa, California. My clients embody a range of ages, health concerns, and abilities. Our classes are always full and the Ki energy is amazing. We have had great feedback from our members on the health improvement and benefits Jungshin provides. I personally struggled with arthritis in my pinkie and after just 3 weeks of teaching and doing FTP (Jungshin’s Finger Tip Pushups) my pain is gone.

You can find me at most of the conventions leading courses in Jungshin Fitness along-side Annika Kahn.

I have been training with the Jungshin method for 2 years now and have been an avid advocate of the training system and the programming. As one of the Programming Officers for the Institute of Motion I am intimately familiar with designing programs around movement. Jungshin combines the perfect balance of fully integrated movement sequences with the delicate sophistication of load with the sword. This programming system is perfect for Group Exercise and Personal Training and Small Group Training since it is simple to replicate, completely scalable to all ages and experience levels and very entertaining. It can challenge the most fit of individuals and inspire the people that need movement in their lives. As a Health Coach I can attest that moving with a sword is a fundamental skill set that can be taught to everyone and can be used to increase cardiovascular benefits as well as tensile strength. Both are needed to enhance longevity and function as we age. I highly recommend you try Jungshin and be prepared to fall in love.

Annika put on an amazing workshop for our team. Using the principles of Jungshin she got the team to focus, tune into their bodies and have a powerful workout. We all bonded while she assessed us as either a leader, follower or neutral by the way we worked with the sword, it was fascinating. It was a thoughtful and fun way to end our company offsite together.

I find Jungshin Athletic training is a fluid workout that requires the mind to stay focused on the action and the execution of the movements of the sword. I teach my University of San Francisco Aerobic Fitness students the format because of the mental training involved. It is not a 'mindless' workout. I love the fluidity and the upper body movements which are so important because of the use of our 'devices'. It is a low impact, continuous movement class that can be made more challenging by adding burpees and pushups. Bravo to Annika for creating and for evolving the method.
