At Valois Kung-Fu Chief Instructor Marc Valois, 7th dan Blackbelt, teaches students the Shaolin Fist Way also know as Shaolin Chuan Fa.

This style is based on “five animal shoaling” from the northern and southern Shaolin Temples of China.

At Valois Kung-Fu students are taught everything from open hand technique to weapons technique.

“The first weapon that the students learn is themselves,”  Chief Instructor Valois explains.

“Your body is a weapon. Once you have a good understanding of your body’s power as a weapon, then you work on extremity weapons.”

Like anything see that met be mastered time and effort must be made.

Valois’ students advance throughout a belt program.

For the Junior Belt program students advance from a half yellow stripe up to their 11th belt, a full black stripe.

For the older or more advanced students working at Valois Kung-Fu students advance from Yellow Belt to Black belt.

Each advancement comes with a unique set of requirements to ensure the student is ready to move onto the next step in their training.

Valois Kung-Fu held belt testing in the month of March, with many students advancing further in their training and understanding of Kung Fu.

The team at Valois Kung-Fu includes chief Instructor Valois, along with Founder and Grand Master Dave M. Chong, Master Pel Capone and Assistant Instructor Angelo Sia, 5th dan Blackbelt.

There are several classes available to teach students of all ages ways to improve balance, coordination, self-control, build character, improve attitude, self-defense, self-discipline, humility, fitness, self-awareness and the power of positive thinking.
