"Excellent traditional training, instructors are friendly and professional, enjoy learning Wu style Tai Chi., I highly recommend school."
"I've searched for an excellent and supportive Martial Arts school in Los Angeles for many years and am happy to say that I have found the style and school for me."
"The instructors.. is where the school shines. You won't get these instructors anywhere else, and they are amazing. They have committed their entire lives to Eagle Claw, and they know how to take the style from Art to Application with expert knowledge."
"Whether it is in the traditional forms, weapons, work-out, self-defense or sparring classes, there are so many layers of material in the style of Eagle Claw, that it keeps you constantly learning and developing. The system is very deep, but is taught with great patience & detail, always with your individual abilities in mind. Sifu Benson Lee & Sihing Tav have a very exceptional way of teaching/passing on this style of Kung Fu. They are the real deal, living & breathing YJP and are committed to preserving the lineage of this particular style".
"Our child has taken different forms of kung fu at other schools in LA - and they were all lovely in their own way - but here, she has found her home. Tav is an amazing instructor: he is kind, funny, fair and firm, and he is dedicated to ensuring that his students truly learn. This is no belt factory: the kids have to work hard to earn their props, and that's wonderful".
"My 8-year old son started taking Kung Fu... about 4 months ago and I have never seen him show such commitment and focus, He loves to practice, is making progress, and showing so much independence. This studio has a great combination of both the discipline and conditioning of martial arts but also a sweet, neighborhood feel that you want for your child. My son has his first belt and I look forward to many more".
