Children Classes

Welcome to the Children’s programs at the Academy of Kung Fu. In our children classes we teach traditional Ving Tsun Kung Fu. Our classes will help to improve your child’s balance, coordination, focus, discipline, self control and overall physical abilities.
Unlike many schools we do not have belts, expensive gear and a myriad of instructors. Instead, we focus our attention on giving your child the same authentic Kung Fu that has been passed down for generations.
Your child will get a complete education in Ving Tsun that will also include the rich culture behind Chinese Kung Fu. They will learn about their Kung Fu lineage, the history of their grandmasters and even how to count in Cantonese!
