About the School

Founded: 2010

We inherited our school name after a failed partnership with a Song Mountain Shaolin instructor.  Now, we follow master Chiu Chi Ling 趙志凌 on the traditional southern Chinese martial arts called Hung Ga 洪家拳.  We focus on both the physical and mental health benefits of the art to achieve the perfect balance.  We teach self-defense, kung fu forms both empty hand and weapons, and Chinese kung fu techniques.  We also teach lion dance which reinforces and complements our kung fu training.  Students also learn both Chinese culture and health cultivation.  In the end, what is life without good health.

The instructor, Sifu Paul Lee has a bachelor degree in physical education and doctorate in chiropractic. He formally trained in Chinese martial arts for over 20 years. He travels to Hong Kong and San Francisco annually to update his knowledge. His current masters include master Chiu Chi Ling 趙志凌 for Hung ga kung fu and master Wan Kin On 溫健安 for lion dance.

We have been opened since 2010 and currently accepting new students.  Our fee is affordable and flexible. There is no contract to lock you in.  you can pay month to month or pay 3 months with a discount.  Regardless of your color, gender, fitness level, weigh, or size, we welcome everyone from age 6 to 60.  Please contact us for more information.
