  • What do I wear to class?
    For Kung Fu, you should wear a black Gi (uniform), black shirt, (both can be ordered through the school with fee), along with comfortable workout shoes that won't mark the carpet and are only worn in the school to prevent bringing in dirt. For Tai Chi, Chi Kung, or Push Hands, you should wear comfortable workout clothes that you can easily move in without tripping. You can also wear comfortable workout shoes that won't mark up the carpet and are only worn in the school to prevent bringing in dirt. We recommend adding a beige dancers suede to the bottom of shoes for easier spins, most students have this done at "Verdugo Shoe Repair" in Burbank.

  • My Kung Fu class is held two days in the week.  Do I need to attend both classes or can I just take one class a week?
    Your membership includes both classes. You should make plans to attend both classes as there is different material covered on each day. If you cannot make it to one of the classes let your instructor know. There are always options such as Saturday classes or private lessons to help you catch up. We can always find a way to work with your schedule.
  • Does the school do competitions?
    No. The school at one point did competitions, we even produced world champions, but this led to students focusing on competition fighting and neglecting the rest of the system so that has been discontinued. ASMA's slogan is "Train Only To Master Yourself".
  • Are there any special events?
    Yes, we occasionally do special events such as demos, seminars, and even craft fairs. As we approach an event it will be advertised in the Event section of the website.

    If you are dedicated to the training and don't miss too many classes, an adult should reach black belt in 3 to 4 years
  • Can I keep my belt rank that I got from another Martial Art school?
    No. All students begin as a white belt regardless of prior martial arts experience. Every martial art system is different and has different requirements for rank elevation. One exception is if you are transferring from another school that also teaches Suh Do Kwan. Speak with an instructor for more details.

    It's based on rank. Every student wears a black gi (uniform), when one achieves Master, they earn a White coat, and once they achieve Grandmaster they earn a White coat with a Black collar.
