"Kids Kung Fu is our specialty."
At The Northern Shaolin Academy, we are committed to teaching LIFE SKILLS - patience,
focus, kindness, honesty, and respect - along with PHYSICAL FITNESS in a positive and clean environment.
We specialize in AGE-APPROPRIATE INSTRUCTION.
Children attending Northern Shaolin Kung Fu and Tai Chi Academy are divided into two
different age and skill levels.
Classes for children ages 4 and up, are organized by age and skill level.
Kids, ages 4-5, attend the "Little Dragons" classes.
Older Children students, ages 6 -12, have a Junior curriculum,
which includes practical self-defense, Forms, Safety weapons
and practical fighting experience.
We have many dedicated children who also enjoy our Wu-shu classes
that are offered on Friday evenings.
Our Children enjoy all Kungfu workout classes as an extra-curricular
sport like no other.
Children are led step by step in the beginning classes by our
professional teaching staff.
The instructors ease them into the training and help develop
their skills, teaching them how to set goals and achieve them.
Many of our kids & teens are testimonials that training at
Northern Shaolin Kung Fu and Tai Chi Academy helped them get acceptance into
Kung Fu kids gain many kinds of experiences from the skills learned
in class, to the valuable experiences gained by participating in
optional extra-curricular activities as parades, tournaments and performances.
Your child will develop concentration, confidence, discipline
and respect, while building physical fitness, coordination,
and self-defense skills in our safe, fun and positive environment.
