“Koryu Judo & Sumo. Amateur sumo is a well organized, immensely enjoyable form of grappling which has been gaining popularity around the world. The rules for sumo are simple. Two contestants, wearing only grippable body wraps (“mawashi”), use various strategies and techniques – some of which are surprisingly subtle – to upset each other’s balance. A victory occurs when one of the two opponents touches the playing floor with any part of the body other than the soles of his or her feet, or if one of the contestants is forced outside a playing ring which is 15 ft wide (i.e., the “dohyo”). Punching, gouging, and kicking are prohibited.  Pushing, pulling, body slapping,  tripping, and throwing techniques are allowed. The “mawashi” (sumo belt) may be grabbed anywhere around the waist, but not in the groin area. Hair-pulling is also banned.  Most victories are achieved with about a dozen of the 82 recognized kimarite (winning techniques).”

“Sifu Lo began his martial arts training in 1963… At the Wu Mei Kung Fu Association, we believe in the traditional apprenticeship method to train students to become the next generation of Masters. Classes are ongoing; there are no sections or semesters. The learning is never ending…Grandmaster Sifu Ken Lo oversees every student’s’ training and provides an environment of highly trained senior instructors to act as “big brothers and sisters” to less experienced students, thereby providing different examples of high skill for beginning students to follow. The traditional mentor training touches and improves all aspects of the apprentices’ lives… The mentor training is all but lost in China and the rest of the modern world. The Wu Mei Kung Fu Association is one of the few remaining sources of this kind of life training. A typical class includes and integrates the laws of physics, biomechanics, martial arts, visual arts, poetry, traditional Chinese medical theory, Chinese philosophy, Buddhism, Taoism, mathematics, Feng Shui, oracle, tea appreciation and fitness science. Where else can you be immersed in such an environment?”

Minimum force is used, relying instead on a superior feeling of leverage, momentum, angulation, redirection, pressure points and joint-lock methods. Qinna has almost been lost to the world. This treasure of Chinese Gongfu is being restored through the work and teaching of Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming. Joshua Craig has been given permission by Dr. Yang to lead seminars and classes in this method.”

“Dantao, translated as The Way of Transformation, is a small school started in 1981 by Sat Hon as a vehicle to transmit the wisdom of Taoist Alchemy.  Taiji Quan and Qigong practices are branches from this old alchemical tree of life. Our school teaches from the Dragon Gate Taoist lineage:

• Wudong Neidan Taiji Quan—a proto-Taiji form derived from the Dragon Taiji style.
• Taiyin Qigong—Woman’s qigong, a gentle movements created by the immortal sisters.
• Alchemical Qigong—cultivation of the internal elixir and to deeply strengthen one’s primal vitality.
• Immune Qigong Therapy—a therapeutic application using Mudra, sound and movement for healing.

Tao (pronounced “dao”) means a road, and is often translated as ‘the Way’.  Tao is emptiness — spacious creative potential from which all reality emerges.  It is the underlying fabric of reality.  In the Taoist view of cosmogenesis, there existed timeless hundun, primordial chaos.  Then a spark of primal energy, qi, spontaneously ignited thereby splitting the hundun into polarity, yin and yang.  These two complementary forces: feminine and masculine, dark and light, interpenetrate in the creation of matter and energy.”

V.K.V.T. – The Superior System FOR CONNOISSEUR – is a devastating fast fighting art of great practical value created by a nun of Shaolin.

Learning good KUNG FU is 100% “hand made” from a genuine master.”

“Founder, Sifu Yip Pui (1950 – 2014). The school will remain open and classes and testing will continue to be administered by Yip Pui’s senior students. Like so many Kung Fu disciplines, Wing Chun is a very old fighting system, shrouded in secrecy and passed on to only a select few. It was virtually unknown in the west until the 1960s, when Yip Man – the legendary teacher of Bruce Lee – revealed it to the public. Grandmaster Yip Man – who has been deemed one of the most influential Martial Artists of the 20th century by Inside Kung Fu magazine – had other renowned students, including his eldest son Yip Chun.”

A wide variety of techniques are used: strikes, throws, joint locks, foot sweeps, pins, chokes, projections, pressure points with the object being to control the attacker and put him on the ground. Ukemi is the ability to fall safely; it is taught and is strongly emphasized.”

“Daito-ryu aikijujutsu is a traditional Japanese martial art. It is one of the many styles of jujutsu that were part of the fundamental martial skill for all bushi, or warriors of feudal Japan. Daito-ryu’s elegance and practical efficacy are products of hundreds of years of development and refinement. Daito-ryu employs a wide range of throwing, pinning, disarming and joint immobilizing techniques. The use of aiki, or internal energy harmonized with breathing and mechanical advantage, distinguishes Daito-ryu from other jujutsu…. Yushinkan is small by design in order to attract and keep serious students, to keep the quality of training high, and to create the camaraderie necessary for such training… In order to maintain this high level of focused training for our members, we do not allow visitors to our standard classes. However, as a gateway for outsiders to observe or participate in training, we offer a special weekly Fundamentals Class.”
