about ling's wing chun kung fu academy:
At ling's wing chun kung fu academy, our school values respect, discipline, and empowerment. All of our classes are mixed styles and children and adults are in the same classes. Our goal is to bring families together. When families train together, they build a stronger bond with each other.
For kids, we focus more on cultivating respect, discipline, defense, and physical conditioning. for adults, we try to accommodate to specific needs and goals they may have. whether they want to accomplish health goals, increase their confidence, learn how to defend themselves, or if they just want to learn some new of a different culture, we try out best to achieve whatever they set their minds to.
