We emphasize personal growth and work to foster confidence in both kids and adults. It’s fun for the whole family!
One of the most famous aspects of Pa Kua is the martial art style known as Pa Kua Chuan (Baguazhang). This internal style is famous for its distinctive circular walking forms and use of open hands. While this is one aspect of our teachings, it is only a small part. We avoid the use of the term “style” and the strict adherence to forms, as it can severely limit students. As you gain confidence you will learn which techniques are most enjoyable or effective to you and develop a style which is unique to you. This allows our students to become the best versions of themselves.
In this class you will learn:
– A variety of martial arts techniques
– Physical Conditioning
– Self defense
– Internal strength and self confidence

5 Reasons why our Martial Arts Program is fit for You & Your Family
Inclusivity is the cornerstone of our Martial Arts Burbank community.
You may be learning to manage a variety of weapons with your newfound martial arts skills, but you won’t focus on combat. Instead, this is a safe space to connect with an ancient art form, and with yourself. All levels, from first-timers to advanced practitioners, are welcome to become a part of a community that blends self-defense skills with an increased awareness of yourself and the environment around you.
Our program helps you work on personal growth and self-esteem.
Instead of focusing on the opponent, this practice focuses inward. You’ll learn to connect with your body through slow, mindful movements that make sure your energy flows harmoniously through your body. Your newfound intentionality will then help you connect with your mind and recognize the strength within you. This art form is designed for you to think about yourself, how you move, and where you are in space and time It’s not about winning a fight; it’s about helping you reach your personal best and grow in all areas of your life. The more connected you are to yourself and the more you grow personally, the more you will find confidence in everything that you do.
You may joke about walking in circles, but the circular walking form in Pa Kua is one of the most central and disciplined skills that you can find in martial arts.
Moving in a circular pattern, especially in various types of posture, requires very intentional movement and an awareness of your own body. This skillful movement is so impactful that students of all martial arts disciplines are encouraged to study it. As you focus on yourself and your surroundings in these fluid motions, you will develop a key martial arts foundation. Your new footwork may even come in handy for avoiding blows in self-defense.
This practice takes a non-combative approach, especially at our Martial Arts Burbank studio, but it’s still a martial art.
You may not be competing with anyone, but if you need to develop your self-defense skills, this practice can come in handy. You’ll learn to spar with various weapons and use strikes, kicks, and throws. You will also learn pressure points and how to use your opponent’s momentum to your advantage. Of course, acrobatics also play a part in the new skills you develop, so you’ll practice falls, somersaults, rolls, and flips as well. Part of self-growth is learning to take care of yourself in all situations, and the self-defense techniques in this art form can help you learn to do so.
This martial arts practice focuses on slow, controlled movements.
You will learn to be intentional, which means that you will improve your focus. As you practice concentrating your body and mind on your martial arts skills, your focus will improve overall. This newfound skill can expand into all aspects of your life, whether you’re growing academically, professionally, or personally. You never know how strong you are until you need to use your strength. This martial arts program will help you tap into your inner strength by teaching you a variety of disciplined, controlled movements that are both graceful and useful for self-defense. If you are looking for a more vigorous class, you might also want to consider our Burbank kickboxing class (Pa Kua Rhythm).
Whether you register now or start your free trial, you will find that the non-competitive atmosphere creates a safe space for you to focus your mind inward, grow personally, and develop your confidence and self-esteem.
Martial arts are far more than sparring: they are the key to a stronger, healthier, more confident you.
