PATHS Atlanta Kung Fu is a grassroots Traditional Chinese Martial Arts (TCMA), school focusing on the Kung Fu (功 夫) styles of: Northern Shaolin (北 少 林 拳), Xing Yi Quan (形 意 拳) and Taijiquan (太極拳), better known as "Tai Chi."
We’re a fun and friendly bunch of folks who’ve been teaching these styles of martial arts for many years, and training them for many more. We’re passionate about kung fu and we are passionate about helping our students do their personal best; to grow and expand in different areas of their life through the avenue(s) of kung fu.
Why The Name "PATHS"?
Good question! "PATHS" is an acronym that means Physical Arts & Traditional Health Systems. So it hints at what we do. And since we offer various styles of kung fu, there is also the component of choosing one’s path.
Although we may change our branding in the future, our passions, vision and execution will remain at the highest level to give our students that fun path of learning the Traditional Chinese Martial Art of their choice – personal growth all the way!
PATHS Atlanta Kung Fu: Origin Story
It’s really a fairly short story. Three fellows passionate about kung fu became great friends. They had each been teaching and training their chosen martial art for awhile and decided to join forces.
Originally we had three different styles of Kung Fu taught by three different people, but we’re now down to two. No worries – we’re all still good friends! 🙂 And for those who enjoy cross-training, you’ve also got a wonderful cross-learning that happens – styles that have their own flavors, methods and foci, yet also have enough similarities to enhance learning across the board, as some of our workshops and seminars show.
