Local Kung Fu school California Academy of Martial Arts has a full complement of fun activities for kids and parents this spring and summer. In addition to group and private Kung Fu classes available 7 days a week, they host a number of themed events, camps, and parties for the community.

“In May, the school year is winding down so it’s a popular time for children in particular to join,” says Chief Instructor Todd Shawn Tei. “Kids have a lot of free time and few constructive ways to spend it. Parents want their children to have fun and enjoy their vacation, but they also want to keep them moving forward in terms of their life skills and work ethic. Our martial arts programs are a natural fit.”

Parents report that students learn more than self-defense: they return to school better and more focused students than they were the year before. “In most Los Angeles schools — regular and martial arts schools alike — the teacher to student ratio is around 20 to 1. At ours it’s 4 to 1. We’re able to give students the individual attention they need to get ahead.”

By popular demand, the school is hosting a “Family Day” parent participation class on Mother’s Day, as well as its legendary annual “Memorial Day Camp” for ages 5-13. Both events are also open to non-students for a fee; call the school to RSVP as spaces are limited. The Memorial Day Camp will include lunch and a trip to Menchie’s as well as a foam sword workshop and self-defense class.

The Academy also offers adult/teen classes daily and is considered Los Angeles’ top school of Wing Chun Kung Fu, the Chinese martial art made famous by Bruce Lee.
