Chien Hong is the place to go in Atlanta for real traditional Kung Fu. A very well rounded school working traditional forms, fighting techniques as well as Lion and Dragon dance. If you want real Kung Fu in Atlanta, you should definitely do the free trial class at Chien Hong, and be sure to check out their Chinese New Year demonstration, the best Kung Fu show in town!!
Chinese New Years Performance
I haven’t actually taken classes here. But I did go their school back at the beginning of the year. They held a big festival with demonstrations (both of students from the school, as well as other schools!) during Chinese New Year, and since I’m a big kung fu fan, I decided to check it out.
The interior of the school is super cool. It has all the trappings of a nice Hong Kong style kwoon. The teacher, Gary, seemed super nice. He was definitely good at what he does, and so are his students. The fact that this was HIS school and HIS party – and yet he had invited OTHER schools to demo there too – kinda bowled me over (in a good way)!
The demonstrations were all good! They teach a version of Hung Gar (tiger/crane) here from Taiwan.
It’s kinda weird though…Even though both I and my boyfriend at the time loved the place & demos – neither of us ended up training there; he ended up studying Tai Chi at one of the schools demoing there, and I met my future kung fu teacher there as well!
Children’s Birthday Party
Thank you so much for your service. All my guests were very impressed. Your lion dance was definately the highlight of my son’s party! I was very happy to have your team show our guests Chinese heritage and tradition. We truly appreciated it!
I will send you a couple of professional pictures once I get them from my photographer. I will be recommending your team to all our friends and families.
Chinese Cultural Festival Wesleyan College
For anyone or any group interested in learning more about Chinese culture, I heartily recommend checking out the Chien Hong School of Kung Fu, lead by Shifu, or Master, Gary Mitchell. The Chien Hong School of Kung Fu was the headline act for Wesleyan College’s September 2014 festival celebrating Chinese culture. Festival visitors were treated to two enthralling performances: a traditional Chinese lion dance and a demonstration of Kung Fu martial arts. Both performances were enthralling, visually spectacular, and very informative. Moreover, as one of the festival’s organizers, I also appreciated Mr. Mitchell’s professionalism. He was willing to work with us in finding a time to fit Wesleyan College into the School’s very busy performance schedule, and his diligent attention to detail throughout the planning process ensured the event’s success.
