If you live in the New York City area, or you are there on an extended visit, you may be wondering which places offer the best martial arts instruction. There are several schools to choose from; however, some of them only offer specific types of martial arts training while other offer classes in several different types.
Once you've decided on which martial arts style you are interested in, you can then look at these businesses to see which one best suits your needs.
Bo Law Kung Fu
This martial arts school concentrates on the ancient Chinese martial art of kung fu. The traditional method is taught; there has been no change to accommodate the current "trend" or "style", because the instructors feel it is too important to "corrupt" the art in this way.
The school is located where Chinatown, Tribeca and SoHo come together, so you're liable to find yourself sharing class space with celebrities, famous designers, or other well-known persons. That's all right, though, because you're all there for one purpose—to learn traditional kung fu.

This academy is one that offers a number of different types of martial arts training, including Jeet Kune Do Concepts, Filipino Martial Arts, Mauy Thai, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. In addition, the instructors have taken the best of each of these fighting techniques and combined them to form a unique but very effective ay of teaching self-defense.
The Academy offers a free private lesson, so you can determine which type of martial arts technique is best for you. If you like it, you can sign up for the classes and learn martial arts.
