Our whole family enjoys Shadow Fist Kung Fu and Tai Chi VIRTUALLY! We live in Colorado and have been doing the Stretch and strength zoom class for 7 months. It's a convenient way to stay limber. The improved flexibility has made such a difference in my movement even my sleeping patterns have changed. I can get up in the morning without the pain and stiffness. I feel lubricated. Thank you Robert and Shadow Fist!

I highly recommend this school. The teachers are excellent and very patient. Each brings different strength and that provides a more complete learning experience. I also recommend trying the Tai Chi and the stretching/conditioning classes. Tai Chi will helps relax and calm your mind while stretching will stretch and strengthen your muscles. The atmosphere is family friendly and lots of fun. You’ll get a great workout while learning self defense.

Wonderful teachers that all bring something to the school. It has helped me increase my fitness and well being. The Tai Chi classes are great for focus and relaxing while the Kung Fu helps get you moving and using muscles you probably did not know you had. Absolutely recommend.

Shadow Fist Kung Fu teaches an ancient art, self-defense, conditioning, strength, and flexibility. A focus on forms and sparring ensures material is learned , understood, and applicable. The instructors (Sifu's) are highly trained, patient, and flexible with their teaching. Wherever you are in this journey they will help you further grow and develop in the art. My entire family practices at Shadow Fist - pre-school through adult. Kung Fu and Tai Chi is a great experience at Shadow Fist. I highly recommend you give it a try.

Kung fu has helped a ton for my recovery after having a child and has been so much fun in the process, great way to burn calories, help with flexibility and get in better shape. This has also been helping with basic pain management! I really can’t wait until my child is old enough to begin!
