At the school, you will find supportive instructors and senior students ready to welcome you into our class. Our instructors are specially picked by Master Liu based on their skills and their ability to teach. We are very proud of the environment at our school, in which everyone is supportive and we all help each other to learn and progress together in our training.
The kung fu curriculum starts with many open hand forms and basic simple self defense techniques. As you progress, the forms and defense techniques become a bit more complex, but they build upon the basic foundation of the early movements. Eventually the student will progress onto weapons and weapon fighting sets, such as the staff, broadsword, straight sword, spear and even more. Since the Shaolin temple was a "university" of martial arts, there are innumerable techniques and weapons contained in this system for our students to become proficient in.
