Since 1994, Malee's School has been providing quality instruction in tai chi and wushu kung fu for students of all ages. We offer a variety of programs to help you meet your goals. Our students come for self-development, mental and physical health, relaxation, fitness, self-defense, and to compete.
We are excited to announce that one of the world’s top researchers of the medical applications of Chinese qigong (chi kung) is coming to teach a week of workshops from April 15 to April 21, 2013, at Malee’s School of Tai Chi & Kung Fu in Manchester, Connecticut. The workshops will feature both classes open to the public and certification classes for instructors. For more information, please visit our blog.
We are thrilled to announce that Malee's School has acquired a new location at 249 Broad Street in Manchester. It has twice the practice area as our previous school, which will allow us to offer more classes of a wider variety before.
Students looking for a gentle form of exercise with proven health benefits will benefit from classes in Tai Chi and Chi Kung. Our advanced classes often teach Push Hands and the traditional self-defense applications of Tai Chi.
Children aged 12 and under will become fit, coordinated, strong, and flexible in our Youth Kung Fu classes. We provide a balance of fun and discipline in a welcoming environment. Our youth classes also focus on general fitness, mutual respect and self-discipline, which are important parts of their learning experience.
Whether for self-defense, sport, or exercise, Kung Fu training offers one of the most well-rounded forms of exercise you will find. Basic training includes stretching, kicking, self-defense exercises and applications in addition to choreographed routines (taolu). Advanced training includes contemporary wushu for competition, or traditional styles like Shaolin Kung Fu, depending on the student's age and interests. We also offer basic and advanced training in modern sport sanshou (Chinese kickboxing with wrestling).
Our part-time and full-time instructors are well trained and certified to teach by national and international organizations. Malee's School's principal and head instructor, Master Malee Khow, teaches most classes, including beginning classes in Tai Chi and Chi Kung, Youth Kung Fu, and Taolu Kung Fu.
