About this pro

North Sky Kung Fu is founded on the idea of teaching practical martial arts while preserving a unique Kung Fu system. Our goal is to teach the full system of Eagle Claw Kung Fu o and pass along its benefits to you.

We teach one of the world's richest martial arts systems.

Each Class includes:

  • Core Conditioning
  • Learning and mastery of new techniques through drills
  • Application of techniques in pairs
  • Fighting or self-defense training and practice
  • Forms practice
  • Focus, concentration and breathing.

Our kung fu program is based on a combination of one-on-one and group training with plenty of personal attention. We begin our curriculum by teaching martial arts basics and their self-defense applications. Behind our curriculum is a focus on health, balance, and fitness, so your level of conditioning improves as your martial arts skills advance. We welcome both beginners and experienced martial artists, including those interested in  competition.

We also offer one of New York's most unique and personal Youth martial arts programs. We introduce children to traditional martial arts in a safe, family-oriented atmosphere taught by lifetime martial artists. Kids learn practical self-defense techniques and the psychology of staying safe, as they explore the fascinating world of Chinese martial arts. Our school is highly personal, with small group classes. Parents and kids can even work out together.

Our founders are both students of Grandmaster Leung Shum. Sifu Dario Acosta is one of a handful of disciples who have achieved the level of "Master" from Grandmaster Shum himself. Sifu Acosta has practiced martial arts for 40 years, and is one of New York's most accomplished martial artists. He brings a lifetime of study of martial arts, and experience fighting and performing in hundreds of tournaments and championships.

The school's other founder, Sifu Julie Ann, is the school's director, and has been practicing martial arts for over 25 years, and has experience in various martial arts disciplines. Both take an interest in the deeper aspects of Kung Fu, and are committed to helping students integrate kung fu practice into daily life as a tool for fitness, health, and balance.

​We offer highly personal training and high-energy, varied workouts that cover all martial arts fundamentals
