Longview Academy of Kung Fu training is not just another after-school activity. Basketball, soccer, and baseball are all great activities for children, but our program is personal development through a physical discipline.
Our exciting yet disciplined classes focus a child's attention, thus improving his or her ability to learn. Learning builds a sense of accomplishment. With each new accomplishment a student's self-confidence grows, and confidence is the first step in the empowerment of a person's physical and mental abilities.
Once we begin to develop a student's self- confidence, we are then able to instill the values of respect, courtesy, honesty, perseverance, and integrity that are the foundation of martial arts dating back thousands of years.
Furthermore, your child will develop perseverance, which is a non-quitting spirit to overcome life's obstacles. Instilling a non-quitting spirit helps a child over come challenges, to succeed in the face of adversity, and to be a goal setter, and a goal getter.
These combined physical and character foundations that our academy develop, helps children excel in their academic school studies, sports, and the social endeavors. It ensures that they will have the confidence in themselves and the character to make the right decisions when confronted with negative peer pressure. They will be leaders not followers.
Martial Arts is not a team sport, the only person that you are competing with is "Yourself." Students come to us from age four to sixty four. Some students are in shape, while others are overweight. Some come for self defense, fitness, and others for fun. Each person is treated as an equal, and is trained to the best of their own ability and potential. A student is never compared to anyone else. At Longview Kung Fu Academy our instructors are there to guide, instruct, and motivate you to be the best that you can be.
