Our Programs

We have a variety of programs to meet your needs. Whether you are 2 or 102, in excellent physical condition or just starting an exercise program, we have a program for you. We invite you to come observe any of our classes at any time. We also invite you to try an introductory class with no charge or obligation. Just call or e-mail to schedule your free introductory class.

It can take time to properly evaluate a program and if you are a beginner, it can be difficult to know the difference between a good program and a bad one. It may take a month or two before you can decide if a program is right for you and your family. That is why we don't require long term contracts. You can choose from a variety of membership options so that you have little risk if you decide our program is not what you are looking for. We're sure that you will appreciate how unique we are and discover why we still have students who have been with us since we opened in 2000! We also offer discounts so the whole family can participate! Prices for members are listed below for most of our monthly programs.

 

 PreSchool Pandas

Pre-school PandasChildren from 2 to 5 can exercise, play games and learn elementary tumbling. This is not a martial arts program but is a good preparation for kids considering our kung fu programs. This also makes a great "Mommy or Daddy and Me" program and a parent can join in with their children at no extra charge! (one parent per child). We include many of the same warm-ups used in our kung fu classes along with other activities that build coordination, strength, flexibility and fitness. Instructor Billy Greer has taught for schools, senior centers, and departments of parks and recreation for over 30 years. He has had a full background check and fingerprinting. Classes run on sessions. To check on the current session schedule and to register, go to Preschool Pandas

 

Kung Fu Kids
(Tigers and Dragons)

Kung Fu KidsOur Kung Fu Kids program is for children from approximately ages 4 to 11. Tigers are the beginners and Dragons are the intermediate level students. Our curriculum is focused on improving children's attention and focus, improving flexibility, strength and coordination, and building confidence and self control while learning kung fu and having fun! Tigers meet on Mondays and Wednesdays while Dragons meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We also have an All-levels kids class on Tuesdays at 5:30 pm. Go to Curriculum to view a description for each of our levels. We do not teach the self-defense techniques involving qinna (joint locking) in the kids program. $120 per month for unlimited classes or $90 for up to twice a week.

 

Kung Fu

Adult Kung FuWe teach Northern Shaolin Kung Fu. This graceful, artistic, yet explosive style is a complete system that will provide you with effective self-defense techniques while improving your overall coordination, strength and flexibility. It promotes courage and determination without aggression and gives a practical knowledge of self-defense skills.  We offer separate classes for beginner, intermediate and advanced level students. This allows the instructor to focus on skills appropriate for the class so students get more attention and spend more time on skills appropriate for their level. Go to Curriculum to view a description for each of our levels. $125 per month for unlimited classes or $95 for up to twice a week.

 

Family Kung Fu

We recognize that it can be inconvenient to bring in your children for the kid's program, then take them home and return later for your own class. Our family program allows you and your children to take classes together! Kung Fu is a great activity for families to share and this program can give you more flexibility to help it fit your schedule. The Tuesday and Thursday family classes are geared towards kids and open to children in either the Tigers or Dragons programs. Parents can take this class with their kids. With an instructors approval, children 10 and older can join the regular adult classes with a parent as long as the class is at their level or below.

 

Contemporary Wushu

Modern Wushu combines the traditional combative arts of China into a dynamic and acrobatic sport. Wushu allows practitioners to reach high levels of speed, power, and flexibility. Our regular kung fu program provides an important foundation for modern wushu so our wushu classes are considered an extension of our regular program.

 

Tai Chi - Qigong

Tai ChiTai Chi, an internal style of martial arts, teaches mental focus, while emphasizing coordination, balance, relaxation, and proper breathing. When practiced properly, Tai Chi can be an effective form of self-defense. At all levels, Tai Chi is said to regulate the central nervous system and helps prevent stress, high blood pressure, and heart problems. You may also see this written as Taijiquan or T'ai Chi Ch'uan, but they are spelling variations of the same thing.

Beginners start with silk reeling exercises and learn the 18 step Essence Form in our TaiJi/QiGong for Health and Wellness program. If desired, they can then move to the Traditional Chen Style classes to learn a variety of other forms including weapons. New students can start at any time. $120 per month for unlimited, $90 for up to twice a week, and $60 for up to once per week (Once per week option does not apply to Comprehensive Chen Classes). For more information, go to Tai Chi - Qigong

The movements are easy to learn and are suitable for all ages and levels of fitness. They can even be performed seated. Although a simple set, regular practice will provide noticeable health benefits in just a few months. We have instructional material available in book and DVD format to supplement your classroom practice. Offered periodically during the year. Go to Qigong to register.

Homeschool Physical Education

We provide PE classes on Friday afternoons. A low pressure, noncompetitive, but physically rigorous class that's creatively orchestrated and a lot of fun.

Your child will receive an honorary Birthday Blackbelt certificate, and we will provide an introductory kung fu class for all participants. In addition, there will be lots of fun games and activities followed by time for refreshments and cake. You provide the cake and refreshments, we'll provide the fun!

Summer Camps

Beginners with no experience in kung fu or martial arts will learn basic techniques and forms, while students with previous experience will have the opportunity to improve their skills. Tumbling will include basic balance skills such as headstands and handstands as well as working on rolls, cartwheels, headsprings, handsprings and flips. Half-day and full-day options available. Go to Summer Camp to register.

Private Lessons

Our instructors are also available for private lessons. You choose the subject matter so you can focus on the areas important to you. Some people want extra work to help them improve skills from our regular curriculum. Some people want  to improve their tumbling, fighting, chin-na (qinna), tai chi (taiji) or weapons skills. Other people just prefer the one-on-one attention that a private lesson provides or the opportunity to pick the day of the week and time of the day that best fits their schedule. Hourly rates are $60 with a black sash and $75 with a shifu.
