"Persistence is the ability to maintain actions regardless of your feelings.

You press on even when you feel like quitting. When you work on any big goal your motivation will wax and wane like the waves hitting the shore. Sometimes you'll feel motivated, sometimes you won't, but it is not your motivation that creates results - it's your actions."

Happy Thanksgiving!

November 21, 2016

The school is closed only on Thursday, November 24th.

The holiday season is a time of reflection. At our school, we are thankful for our students. For us, martial arts training is more than just an activity, it is a way of life. To have the opportunity to share the benefits of martial arts training with all of you every week motivates and encourages us to work hard everyday. Students, like a tree, need continued nourishment for growth. Our martial arts family becomes a second family unit that will help provide that nourishment through positive reinforcement and hard work in class. Our family wishes your family a safe and joyous holiday season!

And remember... "Teas" The Season! Tea is a unique and caring gift. And not only is it healthy but it is a great, easy, inexpensive gesture of support for your school.

Put Mind Over Muscle

November 17, 2016

No matter what you do, or how well you presently do it, enhanced concentration skills will always improve your performance. Once you learn to fully concentrate on what you are doing, you will begin getting the job done with far greater proficiency. Hence, better concentration skills will lead to a better quality of life. This applies to all areas of your life and everything you do on a daily basis. As martial artist, we are fortunate because we begin strengthening our concentration skills at the very onset of our training. Plus, your teachers will insure the development of your mental focus by stressing the importance of it on a continual basis. For this reason, concentration is a skill that gets stronger and stronger.

Our Huaquan Lineage

October 5, 2016

In 1877, Cai Guiging was born. From a very young age he was trained in Huaquan by his grandfather. Cai Guiging's younger sister married into the Chen family and had a son. Cai Guigin taught him the complete art of Huaquan. When young Chen grew up, he had two sons. The younger one was Chen Hei Fuk.

In 1980, Chen Hei Fuk went to New York's Chinatown. He taught in a very secluded and private manner to only a very few students...

One of those students was Sigung Joe Maury.

To our knowledge, Sigung is the only student, from those very few students, who kept up the Chen family lineage of the rare and prestigious art of Huaquan.
