Special Programs and Seminars
Churches / Community Centers / Schools / Kids special occasions and parties
Chuan Fa Academy offers a variety of services directed towards churches, schools, and community centers, or any grouping of adults of kids who may be interested in receiving a good introduction to the martial arts.
Karate for kids- this is an introductory class intended for a group of kids interested in karate lessons but may not be sure if they're ready to practice at a full time school. Depending on the need this can be done through a 1 time seminar/class or over a period of time doing one 45 min class a week for 5-7 weeks. This service the teacher will travel to your facility so be sure you have ample space for the number of students attending the classes. The focus will be on the basics of martial arts and self defense. Students will learn about discipline, respect, focus, and proper use of technique. The classes are designed to be very structured but fun and fast paced. It's great exercise an has many added benefits over traditional exercise methods. Kids will learn about the history and philosophy of Chinese martial arts, as well as the animal concepts and what they mean. This is an outstanding program with proven success that can enhance the youth education and development at any facility that sees a lot of kids such as churches and schools, but is not limited to just these institutions. Feel free to call or email Chris Hutchings the head instructor for more details and find out if traditional martial arts training could benefit your school or church.
Students must be at least 4 years old.
Pricing for schools churches and community centers is $20 per session for an individual participant. This makes it very economical for a parent to get their child involved in martial arts at their local church, or school. These classes are great for an after school program where kids can take a karate class at dismissal, giving parents who work that extra hour needed before pick up.
Adult self defense / tai chi / fitness- We offer great adult self defense programs and seminars. These classes range from practical self defense for women, street self defense classes and fight training/fitness seminars. We cater to the clientele and what they are looking to achieve with a self defense seminar. MMA and kickboxing classes and seminars are also offered for groups of adults 16 and over. Great for cooperate offices or even restaurants. Particularly places that may have their employees walking to car at night etc. what an added benefit to employment to have a weekly self defense or tai chi lessen right there at the office. An amazing gesture and smart investment to offer their employees a self defense program as martial arts training in general works for focus and discipline in adults just as it works in children.
Tai chi classes are also available. Usually practiced in the morning a day or two a week can really help clear your head, enhance focus, and provide a form of meditation that involves moving into healthy beneficial postures. Tai chi also being a very effective self defense system very well falls under the martial arts category. Even though these classes are far lower impact than a traditional self defense class, tai chi does a great job of teaching sound self defense and surprisingly offers a very complete and total body workout.
Adult classes and seminars are priced the same as the children classes. $20 per session per person. Sessions range from 45 min to a couple hours depending on what kind of program is requested.
Security / Bouncer training
We offer a course aimed at teaching simple, effective techniques and strategies to further the training of any security guard, bouncer, or any other job that could put you in situations that a little self defense might be needed. Generally your company would provide some level of training for certification depending on the level of security your offering, but a continuation of that training using the concepts and techniques of traditional martial arts can keep you in shape and ready to safely and effectively deal with any situation you may find yourself in on the job. All concepts taught in this class are geared toward controlling an assailant rather than destroying one. Many times all you need is to control while backup or a partner can get to your side for assistance. Those moments may be short but your ability to control until help arrives can change a potentially tragic situation into a much better one where nobody really gets hurt. We offer group and private training for this class. For a security company wanting to provide its employees with some extra training the cost is $20 per person per session. For private instruction the cost is $30/hour.
Chuan Fa Academy is not your average dojo. We are very traditional and disciplined about our art. We take self defense very seriously and are always evolving as we all learn more as a community. We also take a light hearted fun approach to many of our outside the dojo and special events within the school. We like to have fun and aim to introduce as many people to traditional martial arts as we can. Everyone deserves the right and ability to defend themselves and their family. Usually martial arts and self defense training can be an intimidating venture if you've never trained before. Opening ourselves up to the community in fun, unique ways allows people to see that martial arts and its practitioners are great people always willing to help and pass on their knowledge as that's one of the most important traditions in martial arts. To pass its knowledge down to the next generation and expand the arts so that anyone and everyone can benefit. Feel free to call the school and see if we'd be a good fit for your personal training, your kids, or for your group.
