I have only been a member for a short period of time, but I absolutely love it! Everyone from the instructors to the members will make you feel like family. The instructors are motivating, inspiring, and will make your goals their goals. I'm always excited to attend the intense, yet fun, kickboxing sessions and my Kung Fu trainings. Glad I found them!

John Wai Kung Fu Academy is by far the best place around for studying Martial Arts. Kids and adults alike can learn a variety of forms such as Kung Fu, Sanshou, and jiujitsu. Best of all John Wai's staff members are knowledgeable, friendly, and 100 % professional! My whole family attends John Wai Kung Fu Academy and we are more well-rounded, happier, healthier, and stronger because of it. If your on the fence, hop off and walk into JWKFA; you'll be happy you did!

I don't write reviews often, but I just wanted to make it known how great this school is. My 6 year old daughter has been taking Kung fu classes here for about a month now. She absolutely LOVES it. All of the instructors are impressively both talented and incredible at their art, while always going above and beyond to make it a fun and enjoyable class for the students. I love watching the children learn while having a great time. They build confidence, discipline and an early appreciation for martial arts. I really can't say enough about this wonderful place.

I give John wai kung fu plantation five stars because not only did they help me drop 30plus pounds in a year but they change my life! And help me accomplish so many hurdles I've face throughout my journey. I can honestly say the instructors dont just come to work and clock in; they value each and every memeber as YOU were the only one. If you're searching for a fun, clean and friendly cultured lifestyle that would mode you inside out; mind, body, and soul JOHN WAI KUNG FU is the perfect platform to help you get in the best shape of your life inside and out!!

This is a great place!. I really like the atmosphere, the people, and especially the kickboxing classes. I can't complain. The trainers are awesome and that makes you want to go work out. Before I would have to drag myself to the gym, now I can't wait to go through a few punches or do a few burpees. If you haven't thought about kickboxing or martial arts, I would definitely consider it. :)

You couldn't ask for a better place for you as an adult or your kids. If it was possible to give 6 stars I would. Best group of instructors I have ever seen at a martial arts facility.

Joining John Wai Kung Fu is one of the best decisions I've ever made! It has changed my life completely. When I first started I was 100+ pounds overweight and I had no previous gym experience. I was extremely nervous and apprehensive about joining because I couldn't have imagined being able to successfully lose weight and establish a healthy lifestyle. Well let me just say, in 6 months I lost a total of 60 pounds and have lost so many inches off my waist it's mind blowing. The instructors passion and charisma make the classes so much fun and addicting! I can personally say they are like a second family to me.

I’ve had a gym membership for over 10 years and I felt I wasn’t getting the workout I needed. Finally I decided to try iLoveKickboxing and loved it from the moment I started. The workouts are not easy, it is a totally different workout when you are actually hitting and kicking a bag instead of just punching air. You get an all around, full body challenging workout, which I love. Starting at the age of 56 I was a little intimidated at first, but the staff is so supportive and motivating that they make you feel like you are part of their family from day 1. The people are all friendly and always have fun while being tortured. This has definitely been one of the best workouts I have ever had and would highly recommend iLoveKickboxing to anyone. The only thing I regret is not starting sooner.

John Wai has exceeded my expectations since joining over a year and a half ago. Prior to joining, I researched different schools and asked others for recommendations. I often heard others complain about other schools over charging them or not meeting their expectations. I eventually chose John Wai based on a friend's recommendation whose daughter attended the school from a young age and eventually became an instructor. I cannot express enough just how much my daughter has benefited from the teachings of John Wai and his awesome staff. Since joining, my daughter's level of confidence, sense of self, respect for others, profound discipline, ability to defend herself and stand up for others, and genuine love for the martial arts has blossomed and become an integral part of her life. She never wants to miss a class, whether it's Kung fu, sparring or jiu jitsu. We've since moved quite a distance from the school, however, it never occurred to us to leave the school- their commitment to the students, effective training and genuine interest in their students cannot be duplicated. My sincerest thanks to John Wai and his staff (our second family) for all you have done for my daughter, all you have done for us.

Are you dealing with

Any of these troubles?

Do you want to lose weight and tone your muscles?

Do you want to feel prepared to defend yourself if you need to?

Are you ready to feel new levels of self-confidence and pride?

Getting in shape is important for people of all ages and sizes

Try something different from the same old routine

Studying martial arts provides you with a physical challenge combined with a mental one – and teaches you to defend yourself, too.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a unique form of martial arts that teaches students to leverage their body weight to use in the ring or against an attacker. A descendant of Judo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is both a sport and a martial art – and it’s fun to learn.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can help you get in the best shape of your life. It’s a great way to lose weight, tone your muscles, and learn the key things you need to know to be able to defend yourself – even against an opponent who’s larger than you are.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Builds Muscle and Maximizes Physical Fitness

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provides an intense, full-body workout that’s the perfect way to lose weight, increase your muscle mass, and get into great shape.

By combining cardiovascular training with toning and training, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu students push their bodies hard and learn what they are capable of.

It’s a great way to burn calories in a fun and supportive setting that encourages all students to do their best.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Teaches Practical Self-Defense Techniques

The thought of having to defend yourself against a bigger, stronger assailant might be scary, but Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is designed to help you overcome your fears.

By teaching students to take the fight to the ground where they can use chokeholds and other effective techniques to defend themselves, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu helps leverage even a small body into a huge problem for an attacker.

Best of all, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu builds strength and agility, both of which help in self-defense situations.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Students Walk with Confidence and Pride

There’s no feeling quite like the feeling of knowing that your body is strong, agile, and able to do whatever you want it to do.

Studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gives students the knowledge that they can leverage their body’s strength to accomplish things they never thought possible.

Over time, it increases self-confidence and pride – and that carries over to work, home, and every area of your personal life.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Competitions Provide a Unique Challenge

Students who have a natural competitive drive love Brazilian Jiu Jitsu because it’s a sport as well as a self-defense method.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu requires students to spar and fight in class. They can also choose to compete to prove their ability or to advance to new levels of achievement.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions help students set goals and work toward them – and to relish the experience of victory.

John Wai Kung Fu Academy is by far the best place around for studying Martial Arts. Kids and adults alike can learn a variety of forms such as Kung Fu, Sanshou, and jiujitsu.
