Don't Take Our Word For It!
Flash forward over twelve years, and I am now a college student reaping the benefits of U.S. Kuo Shu Academy’s teachings every day. U.S. Kuo Shu Academy is a place where everyone can feel welcome, find support, and grow to be the best version of themself. When my U.S. Kuo Shu Academy journey began as a young child, I did not understand the extent to which Kung Fu would shape my life. I grew up at U.S. Kuo Shu Academy not just learning martial arts techniques and having fun (which you have lots of!) but also learning life skills that apply to all aspects of my life.
Visiting my Kung Fu family is one thing that I look forward to every time I am home from college thanks to my incredible experience at U.S. Kuo Shu Academy that I know will last a lifetime.

This is the place for you and your family!!!!!!!"
Best of all, there's a place for everyone - no matter your abilities. Each person is physically and mentally challenged in their own ways and USKSA really promotes that this is your journey to take and they're there to support you. I highly recommend this school so stop wondering whether to sign up and just do it!

Also during class, they break up a single class into smaller segments with an instructor for each where as other schools have a single instructor overseeing 15 to 20 people doing the same routines. Each student here gets a semi-private lesson during class with a more advanced student to hone your present skillset under the watchful eye of the senior instructor(s). I have had some occurrences where there have been up three senior instructors on the floor assisting students at one time. Although I haven't had any weapons training as of yet, it may be soon for they start training with those in the earlier levels unlike other who start at the far more advance levels and years.
I have taken a series of martial art forms before such as Tae Kwon Do, Wing Chun, and three plus years of Goju Ryu Karate but I would honestly say I'm really satisfied and is really looking forward to continuing my journey of training with UKSA
I have been learning Tai Ji Quan from this school, and it's exactly the type of Tai Ji I was looking for. Not just the basic stuff you learn from a community center or gym, but true in-depth knowledge of the martial aspects of tai chi and how it builds the inner energy, the chi. There's meditation, Qi Gong and weapons work, too!
Everyone at the school is so supportive of the students and of one another. And you not only learn martial arts, you learn ways to become the best version of yourself.
The Tai Chi program provides an incredibly layered experience that combines both the meditative/health aspects of Tai Chi, along with the martial aspects of the form.
Students start with the Yang Style empty hand form, but can progress from there to Pushing Hands, as well as a variety of weapon forms (i.e.: straight sword, broadsword, long staff). Instruction is individualized within a very comprehensive curriculum that provides both group practice and individual instruction.
In addition to the regular, group classes, every student has the opportunity to schedule one-on-one private lessons with a single instructor approximately every other month. These private lessons provide the chance to really deepen a student’s understanding and improve their practice of the form.
The instructors are all qualified martial artists, but also extremely competent *teachers* who truly embody the motto of the school: Virtue, Wisdom, Humility, Martial Arts. They truly care about their students, and provide expertise and support in an environment that is both caring and rigorous.
Whether your interest is Tai Chi or Kung Fu, meditation or martial practice, this is the place to be.
