Our Programs


WHAT IS WUSHU? Wushu (武 术 ), in Chinese simply means “martial arts.” In the west wushu is more commonly known as kung fu, from the Chinese “gong fu,” which refers to a skill or trade gained by discipline and hard work.

Kids Kung Fu

Wushu/kung fu is an ideal after-school activity for children, as it is a great alternative to television or video games, and simulating enough to keep the interest of kids. As we move into the virtual age, it is becoming harder and harder to keep kids active, and so letting your child have fun and stay active in kung fu class is one of the best things you could do for him or her.

After School Program

Students in our after school program benefit from 2 hours of high-energy kung fu classes each day. Before and between kung fu, our after school kids also get help with homework, work on character building, and engage in a Chinese language and culture lesson.


Tai ji Quan (Tai Chi, or Tai Qi) is a system of exercise well known for its relaxing and meditative qualities, and is often referred to as “moving meditation.” Emphasizing deliberate and flowing movements, Tai ji is perhaps one of the best methods to exercise mind, body, and spirit simultaneously.


Sanda, which simply means, “free, or open, fighting,” is the Chinese style of kickboxing. Sanda is very similar to Muay Thai, though unique to Sanda is the use of elaborate throws and takedowns, with less emphasis on knee and elbowing techniques.
