Hung Fa Yi Kids Kung Fu Classes in Tempe, AZ






“My goal is to teach kids to use critical thinking in self-defense;
in other words, to use the right tool at the right time & distance,
instead of forcing an action just because it is their favorite technique.”

~Sifu Mark

Age-Specific Kung Fu Classes for Kids

Kids Testing-March-40

White Tigers—6-14 yrs old

Classes progressively challenge your child to establish the basics of kung fu skill and martial artist character.  Our White Tigers Kung Fu program has been developed to help your child use critical thinking in their self defense options. By recognizing and understanding the different ranges of combat and tools available, they make the correct choices based on their experience. The kids in the White Tigers program learn to use the correct response/tool for the job at hand rather than trying to force a technique.

Teens—15+ yrs old

As youth mature and their capacity for learning increases more detailed instruction in the advanced concepts and principles of martial arts are taught and they train alongside their peers in the adult program of their choice. At this age they are considered to be mentally and physically capable to understand and apply the concepts of efficiency, economy of motion etc.

Testimonials About Our Kids Kung Fu Classes

Hi  Sifu Mark,  I just wanted to say thanks for teaching the kids, mine in particular.  I know they are not the best students, or the easiest to teach and keep focused. But I think you have a great aptitude and skill for keeping them involved, and are able to pull the best out of them.  Ben is doing well and starting to pick it up. Thanks and great job!
