It's not everyday you get to learn from a real living master! That's what you'll get at this school!!! Grandmaster Doc-Fai Wong is the President and Founder of the Plum Blossom Federation that has over 200 schools Worldwide and over 30,000 students.... the best part is, THIS school in SF is the headquarters! This is his school!
Sifu Jason Wong and his staff of certified instructors (some have been in the school since 1975!!!) make sure that you effectively learn traditional Choy Li Fut Kung Fu and Yang Tai Chi!!! You learn the art, the self defense applications, punches, kicks, jointlocks, grappling... they have sparring and push hands so you can test your technique! They also have assistants that will help out so you will always get one on one attention. The staff keeps class fun and exciting!!!
Seriously, you get to train with a living master! Grandmaster Doc-Fai Wong!!!
Doc-Fai Wong Martial Arts Center has been around since 1968 making it one of the oldest schools in the bay area. The instruction is awesome and is steeped in tradition. They have specific classes for 4-6 year olds, 7-11, teen and adults. They offer classes 6 days a week and are open most days from 3 to 9 pm and from 8:30 to noon on Saturdays. I did my home work and tried multiple schools before choosing this one. What most impressed me is the dedication people have to the school, system and each other. One instructor has been teaching there for over 25 years!!! Aside from that the school sits on the N line and non-metered parking is readily available.
I have lived all over the world and this is by far the most well rounded school & martial art system I have ever found! If you are fortunate enough live in SF and attend that school you are blessed as it is the headquarter school of the international federation. It is as close to the source as you can get! In addition to Grand Master Doc Fai Wong is of the best acupuncturists I have ever seen and I can move again pain free! This school is the place to be!
