We offer numerous programs to suit everyone’s needs. Training objectives will be discussed with Master Tang so he can create the best possible training plan to match your goals and abilities. If you have previously obtained XuanWu Pai knowledge, and desire to get input on your forms or techniques, Master Tang will be happy to assist you.
All instruction is one-on-one taught by Master Tang Li Long.
The Academy’s Health and Wellness Program is specifically designed for people who are primarily interested in improving their health or recovering from injuries.
