Instructors hold sessions Tuesday–Saturday in the afternoon and evening. They tailor their vast knowledge of martial arts and self-defense to students of different ages and different needs, focusing on mental discipline for kids, real-world moves in female self-defense classes, or classical kung fu techniques in adults' classes.
The Martial Arts House
James Rothery served as a military policeman for 10 years, serving two tours of duty in Iraq and training other military personnel in hand-to-hand combat. It was telling, then, that after investigating many styles of martial arts, he chose to stick with wu zu quan kung fu. The name of his chosen art translates as "Five Ancestor Fist," describing its history as a combination of styles. James breaks those styles into digestible chunks for his students, arming them slowly with more advanced skills or simply focusing on fitness and self-defense for those interested in purely practical applications.
