In Chinese, kung fu means “hard work”, and its not only used for martial arts. In Chinese, the term kung fu refers to any skill that is acquired through learning or practice.  It is a word meaning “work”, “achievement”, or “merit”.  Chinese martial arts has been attributed to the need for self-defense, hunting techniques and military training in ancient China. Hand-to-hand combat and weapons practice were important in training ancient Chinese soldiers.

Children bully other children out of a lack of self-respect and confidence. They seek target they perceive to be weaker than themselves to boost their sense of self-worth.

The atmosphere in our school teaches kids that there can be no self-respect without respect for others. We don’t tolerate bullying and we teach kids that the way they treat others reflects on them both here – and at school.

Martial arts emphasizes control and discipline, helping kids learn ways to cope with negative emotions.

I don’t want my child getting into fights. Won’t martial arts make them want to fight?

While we teach kids to be more tough and confident, it’s all in the name of self-defense and as a last resort – not as a weapon to attack. By learning self-defense they gain a better understanding of themselves and those around them, which actually promotes more peace for all.

My child is frightened at school – can martial arts make them less afraid?

Yes. Many children who are fearful feel less so after studying martial arts. They have confidence in their ability to defend themselves if they need to and that helps conquer fear.


Children are taught the necessity of discipline and self-control, as well as respect for others and self. Every child who uses Kung Fu techniques to bully or hurt other children, whether within the school or elsewhere, will be disciplined. Additionally, children who are disrespectful to their parents or teachers, or others in authority will be disciplined by the head instructor.


No problem. Martial Arts is one of the BEST ways children can learn how to have unshakable, razor sharp focus. Kids are able to pay attention in school, feel better about themselves, maintain eye contact during conversations and feel good about themselves in all aspects of their lives.

As a result, kids stand taller, smile bigger, and perform better. They are overall happier and love who they have become.
