Who Are we?

Kung Fu 4 Kids (Formerly Wei Chi Kung Fu Club) has been at the forefront of Martial Arts instruction for children and adults in Dublin since 1984. We enjoy an excellent reputation of which we are justly proud.

Our Instructors and Teaching Assistants are specially trained in instructing Kung Fu to children to ensure that all classes are safe and enjoyable. All our Instructors possess First Aid certification and the club is fully insured. We regularly update our knowledge not only through our ongoing Martial Arts training but through attending educational sports seminars and liaising with groups such as the ISPCC, Campaign Against Bullying, the Gardai and others. We also enjoy a good relationship with a number of schools in the area.

Kung Fu 4 Kids is taught for self-defence and self awareness, and also to improve health, strength, flexibility and self control. We focus on safety, encouraging kids to do their best, and to believe in themselves and most importantly for children -the three ‘Big C’s: Concentration – Coordination – Confidence.

The goal of our classes is for all of our members to have fun and to make their visits to the Martial Arts Academy the highlight of their week.
The Criteria for progression from White through to Black Sash consists of examining two different categories; –

Life skills and Kung Fu Skills.
Life Skills: – This is the displaying and understanding of positive qualities in each of our members. E.g. Respect, Courtesy, Honesty, Determination, Focus, Self-control etc.
Kung Fu Skills: – This is the demonstration of the techniques and concepts of our Kung Fu styles.

Our Motto is ‘Play is the Way’ and we endevour to build upon the boundless energy and enthusiasm and have each of our Kung Fu 4 Kids leave each class with a smile on their face and counting down the minutes to their next training session:-)
