I have told many people over the years about Monk Wise and will continue to do so. Recently I had to take a month off after three years of training and I hated not being able to go. Monk Wise has become a home-away from home for me. It is a safe comfortable environment where everyone is welcome and supported by the staff and the other students. Training is challenging but if you are willing to push yourself and let yourself be pushed it is incredible what they can teach you. Through Tai Chi I have less knee pain and the strength and endurance training has helped my breathing and overall physical health. The Sifus are very knowledgeable in many areas of Kung Fu and are able to adapt training based on the student's ability level. Classes are flexible and easy to get to at either location. Not only do we learn Tai Chi and Kung Fu, but also specialized forms, weapons, self-defense and even traditional arts at some of the special activities and gatherings throughout the year. If you are looking for a supportive, knowledgeable environment where you can learn traditional martial arts and gain strength and confidence, then Monk Wise is where you want to be.
