The Annual LGBTQIA+ Self-Defense Workshop is Here!

          One thing that we here at Middle Path Kung Fu strive for is finding ways we can help our community. Sometimes this means donating to schools or important causes, and other times it means bringing practical self-defense techniques to people who need them.

          Every year we hold a free workshop for the LGBTQIA+ community, because we’ve found that violence against the queer community is everywhere. We’ve all seen or experienced what it’s like to be afraid. It’s not right, and if we can help one person feel safer in their own body, then that’s a win for sure. 

         So, bring a friend or partner and come learn an array of self-defense techniques taught by the instructors at Middle Path Kung Fu on Saturday, June 22, 2024! 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm, all ages.

          Please spread the word to others who might benefit from this 90 minute event, and let’s have fun with it!

          In observance of a number of spiritual and cultural practices centered around this time of year, we spent some time in class giving gratitude to those who are no longer with us, but without whom the Portland Kung Fu school would not exist. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

          Happy Halloween and Dia de los Muertos to everyone! Stay safe and we will see you in class soon!

Students spar during our 2022 Kung Fu park Promotion.

Summer Promotion in the Park!

          Every year we host our Kung Fu summer promotion day in the park, and this year is no different! Our students of all classes are invited to this exciting community event. Read on to learn more. 

 

          Starting from a tradition we had from our school in Tucson, the yearly promotion in the park is a chance to showcase what we’ve learned and support the members of our community we might not always get a chance to see. We sometimes have demonstrations and performances from students or special guests, it just depends on what’s going on that year! 

 

          This year we have once again expanded our special obstacle course. Parents and families are encouraged to bring folding chairs or picnic blankets to enjoy the festivities, as we play games, practice, and of course, tackle our yearly obstacle course. Who knows, we might even have a chance to participate in your kids’ games! 

 

          We hope to see our whole community on August 19, 2023 at 1 pm for what we expect to be roughly a 2 hour event.
