Read below to learn more about our Kung Fu programs for kids, teens, and adults
All Levels Ages 6-12
A martial arts program for the empowerment of girls and female presenting/identifying kids; a program originating from Si Tai Gong Robert Firestine.
Girl Power focuses on the exploration of self-respect, self-defense, and self-confidence through the practice of Shaolin Kung-Fu. Our classes are about fun, discipline, expression, and inner strength while supporting one another along the journey. In an era where the flame of self worth is beginning to ignite for women and girls before the public eye, it is important to continue that momentum into the next generation. To learn to defend oneself is important, to learn that you are someone worth defending is priceless.
All Levels Ages 6-12
A martial arts program that focuses on the inner journey for boys and male presenting/identifying kids, a program originating from Si Tai Gong Robert Firestine.
Peaceful Warriors teaches boys self-respect, respect for others, and self-expression. In a time where we’re seeing more and more voices coming out of the #metoo and #timesup movement, it’s important to support the change in our world from both sides. A peaceful nature is often treated as “un-masculine” or “soft”. But we believe that it is much harder to find the peaceful alternative to a conflict, and masculinity means more than just aggression. Through our training, the students explore the physical and self-defense aspect of the art, while also being creative and self-expressive.

Middle Path Shaolin Kung Fu for Teens
All Levels Ages 12-18
An empowering kung fu class for teens
Non-gender specific and an hour and a half long, students will learn a variety of styles and skills through a cyclical curriculum together, as we forge ahead into the teenage years and the discovery of the self in a safe and supportive environment!
The Middle Path Shaolin Kung Fu Academy
Beginner Level Ages 18+
A holistic and modern kung fu class for adults
This program focuses on the journey of self-mastery. Through the practice of the basics, animal styles, self-defense, weapon training, and philosophical & spiritual discussion, we learn about our innermost self. In learning who that innermost self is, we discover that we don’t need to prove our worth to world, but rather that we were always worthy.

Our kids’ classes are for all levels of experience. We structure our classes around a revolving cycle of topics and styles, so advanced and beginner students all benefit from lessons. The Adult classes are currently aimed towards beginner students, or those who are new to Kung Fu.
Kids and teens classes have 12-week sessions. You can check when our next session begins on our calendar!
Nope! Kids can join classes at any time in the session. The only difference is that more often than not, they will not be eligible to test for a promotion until the session following. Sometimes, kids find this to be more approachable anyway, as they can observe the testing process during their first go-around.
All practice and progress will count towards the next session’s test!
Our adult class is ongoing throughout the year. Students are welcome to start attending classes at any time.
