If your kids are ready to have some fun with other kids, we’re here to help! Log in to Zoom tomorrow at 5 pm for our first Parent’s Night In !

    It’s March 25, and Day 9 of Shelter in Place
    OK, so here comes one of my favorite questions. I like to use itwhenever somebody asks me why the martial arts is so good for kids. Here goes: What do Stanford, Dartmouth, UC Berkeley, MIT, and TuftsUniversity all have in common? Answer: They have all admitted students who earned their Black Belts at Wushu Central. Yes, we are unique in that what we teach here, if students stick with it in the long term, is helping them get into the most prestigious universities in the world . It’s no coincidence, nor is it a surprise. We have 20 years of experience in creating children who grow up with confidence, strong morals, ....

  • The Harder Your Pivot The Harder You Hit

    The Harder Your Pivot The Harder You Hit

    It’s March 24, and Day 8 of Shelter in Place
    The harder you pivot, the harder you hit. We’ve been teaching that for years in the martial arts. If you want to throw the strongest punch possible, you have to generate rotational power, which means you have to turn your hip into the strike. This means your foot needs to pivot. This is also true for most kicks, particularly ones that come from the side like the roundhouse kick (this week’s Tiny Tigers technique!) About a week ago, this maxim became so true with regards to, well…everything. As a society we’ve had to pivot, and in order to come out successful we’ve had to pivot hard. My daughter now takes ....

  • How To Help Your Child Succeed

    How To Help Your Child Succeed

    Parents are an essential element to their child’s success in anything. The enthusiasm and support, or lack thereof, of a parent can make or break a child’s accomplishments. At Wushu Central Martial Arts Academy, it is even more essential that parents be involved as part of the teaching team since our system applies child development and psychology. This approach can create extreme success for a child when their parents appreciate the program and are involved in the process. Parents that enroll their children in martial arts want to see them succeed but most don’t know what is needed from them to make this happen. Often, children who are in martial arts do not have parents ....

    Sunday is Fun Day

    It’s March 22, and Day 6 of Shelter in Place
    Reminder Everyone: I’m starting Storytime with Sifu at 10 am this morning. Come join me for a storybook reading! Honestly, I have no idea how this is going to go. I’m new to Zoom, and I cobbled this together based on nothing more than a wacky idea I had yesterday. It might be a complete disaster. Or the kids might actually like it. Either way, I think of it like this: we all need some fun yet safe spontaneity. Let’s do this! Join me at 10 am by clicking , and I’ll try my best to entertain your kids for half an hour. And for the rest of the day, remember to keep practicing ....

    Remaining Active

    It’s March 21, and Day 5 of Shelter in Place
    I’m really sore. My wife, two kids, and I have been pumping iron every day. When did the days get so long, with so many idle hours to fill? We aren’t naturally sedentary, so every few hours we find the urge to get up and work out in some capacity. Sometimes it’s martial arts training. At other times it’s going to the backyard to work on my daughter’s volleyball skills. We might lift weights for strength and conditioning. Or perhaps just a good flexibility-enhancing stretch. I have gotten so much wonderful feedback from many of you regarding our online class. Many of you are working out to them every day, and ....

    We are Grateful to You!

    It’s March 20, and Day 4 of Shelter in Place
    Today, I am heading into Wushu Central to write paychecks for the instructors. And it dawned on me that I have so much to be grateful for. I am grateful for my health and for my family’s well-being. I am grateful that we still get to continue helping people through online classes. And I am grateful that so many of you have chosen to stand by us and maintain your memberships. I know so many people that lost their jobs overnight . It is because of you that today I am able to pay my staff so that they can pay their living expenses and get through this difficult time. So on behalf of your coaches: Larry, Tan, Mike, Terry, Troy, ....
