Island Kung-Fu is a positive place to train, promoting an atmosphere of respect and self-discipline. It is this environment at our school, without macho or aggressive behavior, that is appealing to so many families.
Our classes are fun and yet challenging to both body and mind. Learning self defense skills that will enable you to defend yourself in almost any situation, as well as strengthening your body and increasing flexibility.
