Our Irvine Martial Arts Classes

Our Irvine martial arts school is proud to be able to offer both adult and kids martial arts in Dana Point. Our martial arts classes represent both the devastatingly effective hand-to-hand applications of Wing Chun along with the brilliant science behind its time-tested martial arts principles.

Our martial arts heritage began in Hong Kong in the 1950s with Ip Man
and his famous martial arts student, Bruce Lee. Our instructors are direct descendants of Ip Man's martial arts lineage proud to carry on his tradition of Wing Chun martial arts in Irvine to kids and adults through a strong commitment to world-class training and hands-on expert instruction.

Our Irvine Martial Arts Class Schedule

Here is our Irvine martial arts class schedule for kids, juniors and adults.

Adults Martial Arts Classes

Adult Martial Arts (Irvine) - Each adult class includes warm-ups,  form, lesson of the day and application-based training such as sparring. 

Class sizes are kept small. There are all levels in each class. It is a very cooperative student environment where senior students get excited about sharing their passion of martial arts with newer students. Our students are all very friendly, encouraging and love to help! Because of this, all classes listed on our schedule are all great for beginners!

We do have an adult martial arts curriculum but adults don't wear belts or sashes. Rather, we have personal levels and certificates along the way.

We recommend wearing comfortable workout attire for our Irvine martial arts school.

Kids Martial Arts Classes

Kids Martial Arts (Irvine) - Kids can expect a safe and encouraging learning environment. Our children's martial arts classes not only teach kids practical self-defense, they also teach focus, respect and discipline!

Our Beginners Kids class are for new students (children ages 4-11).

Our Kids Level II classes are for students (children ages 4-11) who have been with us for a longer time. 

Juniors (aka Teens Classes) are for both beginners and longer term students (ages 12+).

Class size will range, anywhere from 6-12 students. While we do not participate in tournaments or competitions, there is monthly testing to help keep kids on track with the curriculum.

Kids Kung Fu

Kids Martial Arts Classes

Fiercely Focused, Kind Young Warriors

Our Irvine kids martial arts classes teach kids ages 5-15 the art of Wing Chun - a Kung Fu system known for practical self-defense, calm nerves and its compassionate philosophy.

Our martial arts classes teach children how to directly and realistically handle bullies and protect themselves with a calm confidence. Kids gain razor-sharp focus while learning what it means to be a true leader!

Martial Arts Classes for Adults

A Brutally Effective Combat-PROVEN Art!

Specializing in the close-quarters martial art of Wing Chun, our training means practical real-world self-defense and the fearless new sense of calm that comes with it...

...when you know what we know, you will have an enormous boost in self-confidence that infuses into every part of your life.

Martial Arts Training for Older Adults

Older adults find our martial arts classes a much better fit for them than other harder martial arts. Because Wing Chun is based upon efficiency, it does not require strength or speed to be effective. There are no high kicks and most of Wing Chun training is low-impact therefore it does not put wear and tear on the joints like other martial arts.

The bottom line? Wing Chun is great for seniors looking to improve their balance, stay active, improve reflexes, work their mind and increase their flexibility.
