The Art of Self-Defense  

Chinese martial arts are a system of single combats, in most cases, hand-to-hand fighting, based on the spiritual and physical perfection. Like everything else in China, martial arts directly linked to Chinese philosophy. You could even say that the martial arts are one of the main components of Chinese philosophy.

Martial arts are an integral part of Chinese culture, so there are a lot of philosophical treatises written on the subject, the most famous of which is “The Art of War” by Sun Tzu. The book was written in the VI century BC. It deals not only with the warfare strategy and policy, but also it develops a whole philosophy of martial arts. The treatise consists of 13 chapters. It has not lost its relevance even today, as it is considered one of the main textbook on strategy and history of military art and studied at such renowned military academies like West Point in the United States.

What Our Students Say

This is a great school for learning practical self defense applications using traditional kung fu techniques. The instruction is personal and informative and the schedules are very accommodating. There is an atmosphere of respect from the top down that creates a wonderful environment for learning self defense in a safe and effective manner. Three styles are available in separate classes, but their relationships are compared and contrasted through group lessons that incorporate aspects of each. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who wishes to learn real world practical self defense, anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of traditional kung fu, or anyone who would like a fun way to improve their health and fitness. This is a great school!!!
