The Wong People Kung Fu Association is an organization dedicated to practicing the Jow Ga style of traditional kung fu.  Under the direction of Sifu Raymond Wong, the group has offered kung fu classes in the Washington, DC area for nearly 25 years and has produced a number of respected Jow Ga competitors and teachers.  The Wong People are known for their traditional southern Chinese lion dance, which they perform regularly throughout the year at a number of cultural events, as well as for entertainment.  Recently, they performed in the Inaugural Parade for President Barack Obama.  Studying the traditional Chinese martial arts is an interesting cultural pursuit that promotes physical fitness, teaches self-defense skills, and encourages students to push themselves in ways that extend to other aspects of life. 

 

Adult and Children’s Kung fu and Tai Chi classes are currently offered at three locations:  the Wong People Studio at 218 Florida Ave., N.W, Washington, DC; the Chinatown Community Cultural Center at 616 H St., N.W., Washington, DC, and at Historical Society of Washington DC, Mt Vernon Square at (7th & K St NW) 801 K St NW Washington, DC 20001.  See inside for details
