The Chinese Martial Arts are traditionally divided into two groups: the internal family, and the external family. Our classes offer the choice between Kung Fu (external) and Tai Chi (internal). These are two different courses of study, but it is important to remember: the principles of proper movement and technique are the same, regardless of method. As Bruce Lee famously put it, “I do not believe in different styles”.
Kung Fu and Tai Chi offer people a different path to the same truth. These approaches offer different methods of practice and training. In ancient China, all beginners started by learning the “external” family, but modern culture demands access to both from the beginning.
Interest and enthusiasm are the fuel of progress. We strive to help people determine the best possible course of study for themselves.
We all have different talents, different bodies, and different aptitudes. Some should start with Kung Fu, others with Tai Chi. You are welcome to try both. We can help you determine what is best for you.Detail

People often say that the martial arts have their own philosophy. The truth is that the philosophy of the Martial Arts cannot be isolated from Philosophy in general.
Philosophy is reality: where we live, what we breathe, and what we think. Therefore, the Martial arts are a part of philosophy, and not vice-versa. Popular conception divides philosophy by time and territory: Eastern Philosophy, Ancient Philosophy, Modern Philosophy, Religion, etc…Opinions often stand in opposition to each other, but they have a general purpose that unites them all: Their effort to explain the truth. If all of these philosophies removed the subjective and fictional, what remained would be the singular truth. The truth is the same for all people. Reality itself is our one universal human philosophy. Success for a human life demands doing the right thing: Do not oppress the weak, do not kill, do not steal—all of these actions are terrible for the mental and physical health of the perpetrator, and society as a whole. This has been known for thousands of years. The desire to make the world a little better, and to better one’s self, is innate to all healthy humans.
The practice of Kung Fu lends itself to a greater health and a greater understanding of reality. This is what we strive to do.
