Kosta’s classes are based on traditional Kung Fu training and practical street applications. In attending one of Kosta’s classes one can expect to work hard. His classes incorporate a lot of stretching, heavy bag work, focus pads and speed drills. Kosta takes the approach of no nonsense fighting (Don’t dance around just get the job done).
