Studying Martial Arts at the Tat Wong Kung Fu Academy with the accomplished and caring Masters has been a life-changing journey for me, crowned by obtaining my black belt.
I have become stronger, confident, calm and physically fit beyond my expectations. The discipline has also inspired me to become the best person I can be. It has made me calmer, kinder, persevering and motivated.
I have never had better teachers in my life than the Masters who care for each student. They model what they teach with the utmost dedication. Each class refreshes, lifts the spirit and is even better than the last.
The Tat Wong Kung Fu Academy is the best place to learn to know your body and mind, feel safe, be respectful of others and it is just plain fun!
