Kung fu classes
Northern Shaolin Kung Fu classes at PATHS Atlanta Kung Fu are outdoors. They are two hours each on Wednesday nights at 6 pm and Sundays at noon in Glenlake Park. The park is located a half-mile away from downtown Decatur, in metro Atlanta. Learn more on our Class Schedule and Location page.
Ours is a dynamic community of people just like you, working hard to better themselves. We are a community of people working on our individual, personal progress. Our Martial Art Students strengthen their bodies, minds, and spirits. They transform themselves.
All of our Kung Fu classes are Teen / Adult Kung Fu classes – the minimum age for attendance is 15 years old. Unfortunately, we don’t have the resources for younger students.
Please visit the Chien Hong school (personally recommended) if you’re looking for children’s Kung fu and martial arts classes. They have a great program! And tell them we sent you! 🙂
Through our intensive training and varied studies, students learn to not just do Kung Fu, but be Kung Fu!
We build the martial body, the sensitive and probing mind, and spirit, the depth of character you need to transform yourself and your world.
Philosophy, Forms, Martial Applications, Physical Fitness & Conditioning, Weaponry, Qigong (aka Chi Gong, Chi Kung, etc.), Chinese Language. All this and more.
Traditional Kung Fu Training
All classes have one main goal: to help you, the student, progress, to push your “personal best” to even higher levels – all within a fun & friendly environment!
Students receive individual, one-on-one attention, as Kung Fu is about personal progress – the progression along a path towards mastery; after all, that IS what the word Kung Fu means!
In every PATHS Atlanta Kung Fu class, you’re sure to make personal progress. You may learn something new, gain new perspectives on your previously-learned material, learn and practice the martial applications of movements with fellow students, and much more.
Students will also engage in ever-challenging physical exercises. But don’t let this concept scare you off. The physically-challenging aspects, in the beginning, are easily self-regulated, such that you can do what you can do. And then a little more, of course! 🙂

With Fun Sprinkled In!
You’ll get a workout. But you’re among classmates and like-minded Kung Fu friends.
From soreness, confusion, frustration, awkwardness, and more – everyone goes through the various stages from time to time, and so it’s nice to be able to relate to others, ask questions, share experiences and tips, etc.
And Share Some Laughs.
Even while working out, in whatever Kung Fu class you may be attending, laughter and the accompanying smiles don’t seem far away.
Chuckle-worthy moments tend to appear frequently in classes as well, lightening the physical burden.
