Holladay >Monk Wise Martial Arts Academy
I began training at Monk Wise three years ago and am amazingly glad I did. Through Tai Chi and Kung Fu I have improved my overall health, strength, flexibility, and endurance. The environment is a great balance between serious work and fun in what we are doing and learning together. The Sifus, instructors and other classmates are all supportive and encouraging making this a great place to meet new friends with similar interests. Classes support a full range of abilities and push you to do more than you think you are capable of. The schedule is open for the person who can only go once a week or the die-hard who wants to go six days a week, to include a three hour class on Saturdays that makes you proud to be able to accomplish it! In addition to Tai Chi and Kung Fu, there is extended classes in weapons, self-defense, animal forms, specialized style training and even summer retreats. I highly recommend Monk Wise for people of all ages.
Awesome events, classes and Instructors. Great community, students often get together for fun events outside classes to socialize. Weapon training is NINJA style! haha very fun. Events such as retreats are very involving, hard and fun. If you are looking for a traditional way to learn Chinese Martial Arts give them a call and say Jonesy sent ya ;)
Most exciting place to learn self defense. I am a student at MonkWise. If you are looking for a fun place to learn Martial Arts, namely Traditional Chinese Kung Fu. You should at the very least stop in and observe, call the instructor ahead of time to make sure this will not be disruptive to the class though. The program here is far more refined and fluid then other programs I have seen. Student safety is a priority, practicing self control and having confidence in your ability to improve and learn are all things that you will develop here at MonkWise. Not to mention that there are no contracts. If the classes are good they should sell themselves.
All children should get to do this!. I am so impressed with Monk Wise Academy's youth program. My son who has always been really shy now has much more confidence. He is also much stronger physically and more disciplined. We have worked with a Neuro-developmentalist in the past to help the mind/body connection for my son and I am thrilled to see that this Kung Fu program is perfect for strengthening that connection. The instructors are so great with children, practicing what I call, "gentle firmness". I highly recommend this program!
Outstanding place to learn traditional kung fu. I am a current student at Monkwise and recommend it to people of every age and ability level. The instructors are knowledgeable about a variety of styles and a vast range of techniques. They not only teach each student standardized forms, they can adapt techniques to the student’s body type or physical condition and teach them additional material based on their goals and interests. I have learned traditional kung fu, tai chi, and weapons forms, as well as self-defense techniques, sparring and grappling. It is also the best conditioning I have ever done. We do speed drills, strength training, and endurance work in a format that is always different so you are never bored and your muscles are constantly challenged. And the environment is probably the most positive I have ever experienced. The instructors are welcoming and use their expertise to help students learn, and the other students are friendly and encouraging.
