A Complete Martial Art
We strive to develop the complete martial artist.
Mind, Body, Spirit
We seek to develop the mind, body and spirit of each student through a martial art system called Mo Duk Pai kung fu.
Each Student An Individual
We create an atmosphere that allows students to progress at their own rate while mastering a catalog of basic techniques, enabling creativity and improvisation in a variety of situations, from competition to street to daily life.

Lessons in Efficiency July 8th, 2014
Val’s seminar on the Art of Systema was a fantastic way to wrap up the holiday weekend. He brought new approaches to the ideas of movement, breathing, structure (remember the Cushy Chair!!), and relaxation. Huge thanks to Val for traveling cross country to share this info. We look forward to seeing him again soon!

2014 Mo Duk Pai Training Camp June 9th, 2014
What a weekend! Top notch instruction on the roots of where we come from. Tributaries was the theme to this year’s camp held at Aldersgate Retreat Center. Students were exposed to a multitude of classes in various aspects of MDP. From the mentality of what makes our Arts so effective, to how the techniques have changed over time, students immersed themselves in their Art for a weekend of sweaty smiles. Huge thanks to all the instructors who volunteered their time and talents. For the full gallery, click on Flickr page!

Great day of competition with 6 different Mo Duk Pai schools in attendance. Huge thanks to all the Blacks Belts, judges and helpers who volunteered their time and skills to make yesterday happen.
