Kung Fu classes at the academy are structured for all ages and body types. The classes are taught by Sifu Randy as well as by certified assistant instructors through a hands-on approach. Sifu Randy believes in a heterogeneous instructional class design in order for students to be immersed in various skill level situations. Theoretically, students exposed to higher level skills will strive for higher level personal goals. However, techniques of the art are thoroughly explored and detailed with a competency-based approach. Through frequent repetitions with different partners, reactions become more and more natural resulting in the desired spontaneous and efficient defensive skill attainment. Mastering the art of kung fu develops through skilled instruction coupled with personal discipline and dedication.
An average Taijiquan class would include form refinement and martial applications of the Yang and Chen Taijiquan styles. An emphasis in health and spirituality is combined in self- defense ability.Each Wing Chun class uses the theories and skill of Taiji to internalize the William Chueng traditional style and modified styles as all taught by Grandmaster Yip Man. A Wing Chun class may consist of martial application involving fine- tuning of techniques and or sensitivity refinement. Our wing chun differs as we train to make the moves more internalized as with Taijiquan.
