LEARN SELF-DEFENSE, GET FIT, AND HAVE FUN!
US Kuo Shu Academy is a top-rated martial arts center with locations in Owings Mills and Marriottsville.
We offer a large team of highly-trained, experienced instructors and classes 7 days a week so you can fit martial arts training into your busy schedule.
Our martial arts focus is in the practice of Tien Shan Pai, a style of traditional Kung Fu originating from the mountains of northwestern China. It is well-known as an effective fighting style, but also includes graceful empty-hand and weapons forms.
We also place a strong emphasis on Tai Chi (Tai Ji Quan). Tai Chi is a Chinese martial art focusing on internal and external well-being. Also known as moving meditation, Tai Chi combines meditative practices with full body coordination.
To complement any martial arts class chosen, we also provide guided meditation. Meditation is an important part of the mind-body connection and a great way to relieve stress. It will improve your Kung Fu or Tai Chi practice as well.
Children’s Martial Arts
You may think you’re looking for kids’ karate, taekwondo, or martial arts by another name. But our kids Kung Fu program is one of the most well-rounded extracurricular activities you can offer your child. Our program is not just self-defense, just physical fitness, or just fighting. We provide children with character development lessons that will last them a lifetime and help them become well-adjusted and productive adults we can all be proud of. Our students learn how to become “good people” with self-discipline, respect, and focus.
Check out our programs in Kung Fu, Children’s Martial Arts, and Tai Chi for all ages and experience levels. And if you’re worried martial arts are not for you, don’t worry! We offer two free semi-private lessons with no obligation to continue.

Grandmaster Huang has been promoting the art of Tien Shan Pai since his arrival in the United States in 1973. Today, there are schools all over the world that promote the style passed down from Supreme Master Wang to Grandmaster Huang . Pictured here is his third school location in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1978.
