We teach a variety of Chinese Longfist (Changquan) styles ranging from traditional Northern Shaolin Longfist, Tienshan Pai, Tan Tui, and Contemporary Changquan. While we stress precision in technique and form, we also strive to communicate practical application.
Taijiquan (T’ai Chi)
Our taijiquan practice focuses first on health and wellness, but for those who are interested, we make the connection to martial arts via push hands, qin-na (locking) practice, and shuai-jiao (throwing). Students start with taijiquan basics before moving on to 8 and 24 step forms. More accomplished students may do the 32 or 42 standard forms before moving to weapon practice.
Although our kungfu and taiji classes will certainly help get you in shape, you might be wanting a bit more. We have two fitness class offerings, a bagwork and conditioning class which is more martial arts oriented, and an acrobatics/tumbling class involving stretching, strengthening, and calisthenics with the added plus of learning how to fall, roll, and flip (if you’re persistent!).
Prior to COVID-19 we had a thriving kids program for 5-11 year olds, and we are looking forward to bringing it back at some point in the future. As of September 2023, we have not brought back our dedicated kids classes, although it is possible that we will do so at a later date.
Motivated kids aged 11 and up are welcome to join in our general classes.
Online classes (via Zoom and of any sort) are either $5/class hour or $50/month.
As we have now fully returned to in person classes as of September 2022, we are reinstating our rates prior to COVID with a slight ($5) inflationary bump. In person kungfu classes can be paid for by the class at $5/class hour, or by the month at $80/month.
For Taijiquan, costs are $50/month or $10/class hour. If you are enrolled in the kungfu program (paying $80/month), Taijiquan is included in this.
Online resources (forms documentation/teaching videos – not just performance videos) are available to attending members for no extra cost. If you wish to make use of our online resources only (no class attendance), we ask for a tuition of $30/month. Please use our Contact page to inquire further.
