I began my Journey in Kung Fu in 2002 for the purpose of focus and mental discipline. Kung Fu has been my vehicle to help me redirect negative energy, obtain a sense of worth, develop a new family, grow some new friendships, focus on my training and the many other positive things in my life. In Novermber of 2007, I earned the privledge of wearing my Black Sash. Because of my love of this art, I decided to open my own school to spread the knowledge which I have obtained. Iron Dragon Kung Fu Academy opened in December of 2007 in Big Bend and in 2013 moved it’s training facility to the west edge of Waukesha.
IDKFA provides full curriculums in four separate martial arts, though combined they are called “Pai Lum Tao.” Those arts are Pai Lum Kung Fu, Pai Yung Tai Chi, White Lotus Kenpo and San Shou (Chinese Kickboxing). Kung Fu and Kenpo classes are concurrent (students from both arts train together) while Tai Chi classes are separate.IDKFA also provides Childrens, Junior and adult classes for the Kung Fu and Kenpo programs. Children as young as 5 years old may begin training in our kung fu program. Junior and Adult classes are 10 and older.
The Japanese call their schools “Dojos” — and for many Americans the term applies to a place of Martial training. The Chinese, however, study at a “kwoon.” Our Kwoon, Iron Dragon Kung Fu is conveniently located in Waukesha, Wisconsin. The school provides a training floor of 760 square feet and a changing area along with lockers for student use.
