    This school is awesome! Great for building character, confidence, focus, and physical fitness. Some of the best are in this school and after training with them for several years i had a new attituce on life. Belief that i can do anything. I have the Academy of Kung Fu and Tai Chi to thank for this as well as kung fu in general. Plus their style of kung fu is very well rounded for those looking for a solid style of martial arts.

    When I joined this school three years ago, I never expected to become so attached to my teachers and peers. I have never encountered the sense of community I find here at any other martial arts school. The classes are small and the instructors take the time to know you personally and are genuinely passionate about helping you improve. Tien Shan Pai kung fu is vigorous excercise for your body and mind, optimal for anyone looking to lose weight and build muscle. Shi Ye also offers free womens self defense courses once a month in the winter; everyone interested is encouraged to attend and get a feel for the place. The commitment is well worth the soreness and sweat for the friends you make and the physical and mental strength you acquire. Would recommend.

    When looking for a martial arts it can be vary difficult because any person can open a school, but this school is not the case with a rich history, great instructors, will make you feel like part of a family.For those parents who worry about safety Master Ware will not put anybody in a situation that they cant handle; safety is his prime concern, while pushing you to be the best you can. There is so much too love at this school and is worth every bit.

    My daughter is now 12. She has been a member of this academy since she was 3. She has grown into a great pre-teen and will be an even better adult because of what she learned from the great instructors here. They are all very compassionate and caring. From the very first day she was taught to listen to the instructors, respect her fellow members and to try and be the best person that she can be. It does take a little time from you to bring your child here but it is worth it. The skills that your child learns here will filter to other interest/ sports and will help.
    My daughter is a Soccer Goalie. The skills that she has learned here has made her an even better Goalie and team leader.
    As a Kung Fu Parent, I can only tell you that if you want to have you child be involved in one thing that will help them to gain one skill/ sport that will help them for the rest of their lives... this is the place to bring them.

    Frequently asked questions

    Evaluate your present health and physical condition find out what their ultimate goals are and how soon they believe they can achieve them how motivated are they.

    I've been involved in kung fu for 45 years I was the assistant international team coach 2000 2003 2006 2009 I've run my own martial art school for 25 years and have trained several national and international champions. In 2015 Mendoza Argentina I was one of the head coaches for United States National Team.

    It really depends on what you're looking to learn if you want private lessons or group lessons if you want to pay for your a year, six months upfront or month by month.

    My mom got me involved in kung fu when I was 10 years old by the time I was 12 I knew what my goal was my instructor provide his guidance and helping me along the way.

    Youngsters I ever talk or actually two years old the oldest do not have a talk was 65 years old I believe anyone who really wants the lawn care everybody lerns and performs at a different level.

    I also teach in a elementary school and just recently our eighth grade class graduated I have been teaching at the school for exactly 8 years so they were my first class at that particular school the martail arts team there became corporate champions five different years. They prove to themselves when they put there mind to it, it can be achieved.

    I would highly suggest you do your research on the person and the school to see if they are highly qualified lots of pictures or trophies does not necessarily make a good instructor. National and international certifications and tournaments with pictures are also good.

    are they serious about learning and getting in shape didn't realize a black belt or sash takes more than four years it's the journey of learning that will make you an expert. If you have an option of learning from different people learn from the best there are lots of people out there Who have studied for a few years and now claim to be teachers and claim to be teachers in multiple styles don't get taken.
