great school to learn martial arts, i was a student for a while, everyone is very friendly, the instructors are great and will help you learn the forms and applications with ease.
I’ve been in the martial arts off and on for coming up on 30 years and was thrilled when I found Shaolin-Do. Not only is it an effective style (and I enjoy the fact that its history goes back so far), but it’s a relaxed environment. Not to knock other systems or schools, but I have seen some where the instructors scream at their students–even the kids–and try to run the place in a very militaristic fashion. Not here–Here, everyone is encouraged to learn and develop at their own pace, and if any of the black belts have screamed at a student, I must have missed it.
The school does a great job balancing individual needs with group needs. They take the time to make sure you understand concepts and movements before moving on. And they know that sometimes you just have to be immersed in order to learn.
The people are friendly and treat students like family. I wouldn’t want to go any place else.
I love the classes here and the instructors are great. I have always wanted to do a martial art and I am glad I picked this school. The new location has a lot of workout space and a nice lot out back to use when the weather is nice. I would recommend this school to anyone looking to learn Traditional Shaolin Kung Fu, Self Defense, or fighting skills.
