North Sky Kung Fu Martial Arts
We teach a unique martial arts system that's good for the body and mind. As a traditional martial art, we have so much to offer -- our system includes forms, kung fu weapons, partner techniques, a fighting system, joint locks, meditation and so much more. It's designed for good health and self defense. And our SIfu, a master in the system, is one of the best martial artists in New York, with experience in both tournament fighting and performance of forms. We have a great community as well, that has grown with our school.
In a time of great stress and instability, we get to work with people on something positive and meaningful. Kung Fu is so healthy, it keeps us stable, grounded, and in good health. And in addition, we practice self defense which gives us a sense of confidence and control -- our practice is keeping us centered in a challenging time, and we enjoy helping others feel the same. Also - kung fu is a fun and beautiful art, with plenty of room for creativity.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
We start with Kung Fu basics. Our system is called Eagle Claw so we begin with some of the basics of our system. In addition to strikes, kicks, and blocks, and our unique "claw." We help the student get grounded and master these basics, at which point (after afew classes) they start learning froms or routines they can practice at home. Sifu Dario is excellent and adapting our system to the needs, interests, and skills of every individual, including people who are new to martial arts, and people who come in with a martial arts background.
