JWKF / ILKB in Plantation is the best place to train period! Where else can you go to find a family of dedicated and motivated instructors and members? I’ve been here for 2.5 years and after every 1 hour workout, I am exhausted and spent and I look forward to coming back for more. If you are thinking of starting a new exercise routine for the New Year, come and check this place out. You won’t be disappointed!!

Love, Love, Love John Wai Kung Fu Academy!! I was desperately looking for something to help me with the drive to get moving and on the path to healthy. I signed up on promotion not knowing what to expect and honestly I was nervous. My first class was completely amazing. I instantly felt at home and knew this was the place for me. The workouts are intense but you will receive motivation from everywhere. There is always someone available to motivate you to keep going, be it instructor, member or even John Wai himself. I recommend John Wai Kung Fu Kick boxing for anyone ready to get healthy and have a blast doing it.

Everyone really does treat you like family. The instructors are amazing and constantly push you to improve. If you're looking for a positive, energetic and encouraging environment to learn martial arts, or just get in shape, I don't think you can pick a better school.

the best place to get your sweat on. The instructors there are very competent and they challenge you to the best. I enjoy everything about this place. Been going there for the last 2 years and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.

Before I started at JWKF, I would drive by on occasion and think :" that looks like it might be pretty cool place." My assessment was an understatement. John Wai Kung Fu Academy is perhaps the best martial arts and fitness training experience I have had in my entire life. I had some martial arts training in my youth (oh so long ago) but nothing compares to what I have learned here. I started out doing kick boxing and taking my son to kung fu. I have now managed to get my reluctant husband to come and between the three of us, we do the full gamut, from Tai Chi to sanshou, kickboxing to kung fu. We love it here! The trainers are top notch: not only do they treat every one like part of the family, they push us to meet our fitness goals with the no nonsense tough love that is sometimes necessary. The relationships we have forged with fellow sweat mates are unparalleled. All in all, this is definitely a great place. Check it out and see for yourself

There is so much great things to say about John Wai Kung Fu Academy. From the instructors to the quality of their work to multiple things/classes that they offer. My sons and I are members here and we absolutely love it. My boys do kung fu and have develop such a love for it, that missing it is not an option. I have see how they have grown and how focused they have become. I myself do a variety of classes and have started to love working out because of being a member here. I do kickboxing, boot camp and kung fu primarily and each class gives me a workout like no other. High energy, high impact. Some of the many things I love about John Wai Kung Fu is the safe environment I feel for my kids and the comfort in knowing how much they care about each and every one of their members. They want us to get the best of everything that we put in. Highly Recommended.

John wai Kung fu has so many different type of martial art classes. It's diverse as well as convenient in terms of times available to work out. Instructors will even work one on one personally with you to help you improve on things you need as well as personal training. Not only do they teach self defense but they have classes full of cardio and weight for those who just want to let out steam and get fit. Must try!

So many different times to choose from, so there's really no excuse on why you can't come for 45 mins or an hour. The staff is absolutely amazing, knowledgeable, and energetic. Great for kids and adults

Everyone here has a great attitude. Even members encourage you. Great place to work out. Workout are not necessarily easy, but you do the best as you can do, You would be surprised just how much you will do.

This is the best kung fu school I ever been to. Excellent Instructors and they are well-trained to teach. The classes can be hard and lots of work-out but its overall good.

John Wai Kung Fu Academy proves that you are never too old to pick up where you left off. After training in the martial arts from age 8 to 40, I decided to start training again two years ago at age 50. The JWKF instructors in Sanshou, Choy Lay Fut and BJJ are among the best in all of South Florida. I take a mixture of regular classes and private lessons and, despite coming in with an old knee injury, can still train effectively.

Great place to go train if you don't want to go to the average gym. Offers lots of classes and different skill levels as well. It really is a big "family" per say, you know everyone eventually, and everyone cares about you.

Perfect for the whole family

Still the best place to train, develop your family, and make friends!!Whether you want an intense kickboxing workout or want to study a martial art, your whole family will be welcomed with open arms at John Wai's Kung Fu Academy! The workouts are amazing and the schedule is accommodating! Try it and see for yourself.

The kickboxing classes are amazing!! They are a great combo of cardio and strength training! It's a perfect balance for me with the outdoor running/biking training I do! The instructors are phenomenal! Osei Xavier is super motivating, patient, and knowledgable! The atmosphere is so welcoming and you feel comfortable from the minute you walk thru the door! I would highly recommend this workout for ALL training levels!

John Wai's Kung Fu is amazing! It has made me love working out. I really look forward to working out here. The gym is clean, the staff is so friendly and it's an amazing workout. Definitely recommend this place!!

Yesterday was my first class at John Wai Kung Fu Academy, as well as my first kickboxing class I had ever taken. I immediately felt welcomed the second I walked in to sign up for the class. The instructors are AMAZING and so supportive to each student, beginner to expert. It was a tough class but exactly what I have been looking for and I would recommend this studio to everyone! The schedule is accommodating to everyone, whether you are looking for an early morning workout before heading into work or if you prefer to jet over to the studio after you are done working for the day to release some steam. Very excited to start my journey here and I encourage anyone who wants an awesome full body workout that is also fun to come and join!
