"I began to study Tai Chi to improve my balance after surgery. My physical balance has improved remarkably, and unexpectedly, my sense of balance living in the world has improved as well."

— Richard Schaut, Tai Chi & Kung Fu Student


"I have been so enamored with the grounded strength and focus I have seen in the students and teachers in my daughter's Kung Fu class since she started a few weeks ago. She has been passionate and focused in her learning in a way that totally surprised me, and that the art seems to have inspired within her. I am grateful that my daughter's dance with Martial Arts has begun in such an amazing place!"

— Lisa Bonney Berry, Kung Fu Parent  


"It all started a year ago with a little curiosity and has blossomed into a way of life. Since my sons Colin, Branden and I began our journey at Body Balance Academy, each day we’ve enjoyed inspiration, confidence and physical and mental reward from the practice of martial arts. But, the practice is not complete without special thanks and appreciation for the Shih Fu’s and the quality practitioners they are. Shih Fu Hancock and her team have created an atmosphere of positive reinforcement and genuine fun while nurturing student advancement. We are delighted with what we’ve learned and it will be with us for the rest of our lives."

— Kim Stewart, Tai Chi & Kung Fu Student
