  • How often should I train at the school each week?
    Our normal schedule is three times a week.
  • What are the age limits?
    We accept students from 4 to a 102 (maybe older)! Through Tai Chi , Chi Kung, and Kung Fu, we can accept nearly everyone who is passionate about their desire to study martial arts.
  • What is the name of the style I’ll be studying?
    Our “History” explains this in detail. However, in a way, style is really the teacher(s) running the class. It’s very important to have an easy, engaging relationship with the teacher. Teachers tend to present Kung Fu from very personal perceptions. Each one is different as they present the martial arts in their own words. Enjoy your teacher to the fullest! Have a great time!

    No, not at all. Kung Fu will improve your condition as you go along.
