As a girl i always heard Martial Art is not for girls. I was advised to learn singing, dancing, etc. Bur i believe if you can dream it then you can do it. 

Dr. lee is my Grandmaster. I'm blessed to have Dr. lee as my mentor as well. Our Grandmaster taught us to train hard & people can achieve any goals! 

I am a very ordinary girl but I don't give up easily. I fight for what i want. We learn this sport not to hurt anyone but to be savior.  I'll be honored of anyone inspired by me & learn Martial Artūü•č

I love the idea of martial arts? Do you learn hand to hand combat? Are you taught to only use martial arts in competitions and only in defense? Where would you suggest I go to learn martial arts? What type of martial arts do you know?

Sep 13, 12:39AM EDT0

When would you turn a child down to learn martial arts?

Sep 11, 8:52PM EDT0

well, a child need to be mentally convinced. so we give them extra attention not only about their physical construction but also their mind.

Can adults still start to take up martial arts when they are older or is it best to start at a young age?

Sep 11, 4:16PM EDT0

I always prefer to learn in the beginning. so yes, younger age is better for learning 

Sep 12, 4:18PM EDT0

Other than the physical challenges of being an older student, what other reasons are there for learning when younger?

Sep 13, 5:37PM EDT0

Do you do an initial consultation with the child before you take them on or is it a case of the parents want their child to go and the child has to?

Sep 11, 3:37PM EDT0

It depends on their age.but,  of course we talk to them & then decide what is best for them.

Sep 12, 4:17PM EDT0

Hi. How do you tailor lessons for kids? How is it different when training adults? 

Sep 11, 11:41AM EDT0

For kids we need to be very sensitive & careful. They are just kids, they can't take care of themselves. We taught them as a kid but we motivate them same as we motivate the adults 

Sep 12, 4:10PM EDT0
