Wu Shen Tao Tai Chi: what do users think?


Evan Colton: I decided to try Tai Chi for both its health benefits and for its fun self defense/ martial arts side. After several months at this school, I can say I definitely made a good choice. Paul Ramos is a masterful teacher of Tai Chi, as well as other internal martial arts. The community of students and assistant instructors at Wu Shen Tao is also a lovely collection of people. I've loved martial arts for my whole life, and despite studying many styles with many teachers over the years, I have never found a teacher or a school that felt so right.

David Noto: I've been taking Tai Chi classes at Wu Shen Tao for almost 4 years now, and I have enjoyed it immensely. Paul is a meticulous teacher with outstanding knowledge and experience. A lot of people seem have preconceived notions that Tai Chi is some sort of Chinese equivalent to yoga, for old people with bad knees to do to improve their balance. A few weeks of classes at Wu Shen Tao ought to dispel that notion forever. Paul teaches Tai Chi as a martial art and works in all sorts of applications to the different forms. Its very helpful to understand why you need to perform a certain maneuver just so, once you see the application for it. Expect to work up a good sweat, be willing to learn and you will have a great time.

Linda Krakaur, PhD: Paul is a Master Teacher. He is kind, generous, specific, inspiring, and maintains high standards while also communicating that he believes everyone can grow. Paul believes in good form which will allow us to elevate our capacity physically, spiritually, and mentally. I entered his class two years ago with a bad back, two bad knees, and a torn tendon in my shoulder. I am now in the best shape of my life, and I have greater skills to access in all aspects of my life outside of tai chi. As for the post by Emily, as an eye witness to the events, I would say that is an inaccurate representation of the said events. Paul was trying to be helpful as were many of his students. Unfortunately Emily was out of control and lost her sense or propriety. The outbursts in a middle of a class where other people are trying to heal were completely uncalled for, and everyone was shaken by the loud and disruptive nature of her behavior. There are much better ways to resolve disagreements. If Emily had stayed long enough, she may have discovered them.

Andrea Koo: Paul Ramos, the head sifu of the Wu Shen Tao school, to me is a hidden gem in Takoma Park. It's unassuming outward appearance, is really a force in the tai-chi and martial arts community. Paul is full of knowledge on martial arts and goes into great details on the forms with dedication. His philosophies are imparted on more senior students who carry the rigor as Paul. The Wu Shen Tao community fostered by Paul has students of all levels helping one another in various forms from beginning to more advanced forms. It's the place to be for those who are martial arts enthusiasts - in particular, tai-chi!

Emily Prince: Perhaps this is great studio for some, but if you have physical disabilities, this is not the studio for you. If you are trans, this is *explicitly* not the place for you. Sifu Paul Ramos called me a “primadonna” for respecting the limits my physical therapist had suggested given severe muscular issues. That alone would be rude, but sometimes people are rude. However, something to consider if you have injuries or disabilities that prevent you from moving in the way he expects you to be able to move. Sifu Paul Ramos, also, in what was simultaneously to my novice eyes a masterstroke of tàijíquán and literally illegal, said this to me as I was angrily explaining to him that he violated MD law governing public accommodations for trans people by repeatedly referring to me, a very femme trans woman, as male on three out of the four times I attended. If it weren’t illegal, it would have been excellent technique; redirecting my anger back at me towards a vulnerability he knew I had about my physical impairment. Then, as my anger grew, he passive-aggressively wished me well “with the chip on my shoulder.” Again, excellent technique. The classes seemed nice and generally very accessible to beginners such as myself, so maybe it’s the right place for you. It grieves me that Sifu Paul Ramos went out of his way to ensure it was not the right place for me.

Mike Fisher: Very good quality instruction. Substance over flash.

Fred Henry: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueCoach Pei is one of the best Tai Chi and Wushu instructors in the area if not the country. His teachings will never sacrifice commercial interest at the expense of traditional application. I love training with Coach Pei at the US Wushu Academy and will strongly recommend to others.

Tai Yim Kung Fu: what do users think?


Harry Nazarian: I love going here and enjoying the traditional teaching and learning of Kung Fu. The staff is great, the lessons are fun, and the workouts are amazing. Highly recommended if you're looking for a good martial arts and TaiChi school.

Don “Iron-Trainer” Niam: The best Kung Fu school in the US. I use to travel from Ohio to Maryland to train under Grandmaster Tai Yim. The school teaches all aspects of traditional Kung Fu including hand forms, weapons, light and full contact sparring, Lion dancing, Dragon dancing and tai chi. This system is taught in the pure form and is not watered down at all at Tai Yim Kung Fu. I highly recommend this school for anyone wanting to start a martial arts program for themselves or their kids.
Response: Thanks Don! Really appreciate your support and having you as a part of the Hung Fut Heritage and Family!

Alexandra & Jeremy: The whole family takes Kung Fu there. They have classes for adults and for children. It's a very family-friendly atmosphere with very warm people who run the studio. Sifu is a wonderful person and very warm and welcoming. The quality of teachers is high overall and there is a lot of accommodation for different levels of experience. Lester, who runs the children's class, is really magical with them. He is patient but motivating, and so warm and so kind. Our daughter really loves him and we really love what he does with the kids. The teachers for the adult classes are typically helpful and good. Sometimes there is a shortage of teachers when you are more beginner and need some extra help, and that can be a little frustrating, but overall it's a wonderful place to go to learn Kung Fu and it's a fun activity for the whole family.
Response: Thank You Alexandra and Jeremy! We look forward to having you in class again post-covid! In the meantime, please join us online via zoom! Check our website for details at Taiyimkungfu.com... Thanks Again! TYKF

Liz F: Have enjoyed taking Kung Fu here! My son loves the kid's classes too. Very welcoming, family oriented staff. Have never had a bad experience. Definitely recommend!!
Response: Thanks so much for the very kind words! We take great pride and pleasure when parents and their children bond through the benefits of the Hung Fut Kung Fu experience. We appreciate you!

John Ritz Miller: Hung Fut Kung Fu provides an incredible body balancing curriculum where Strength, Cardio and Flexibility automatically come into alignment facilitating weight loss and overall conditioning thru fun but challenging workouts. You get in shape without even realizing it! Great Place, Great People, Great Results!

MaganiaSoulHeart: I took lessons at this school for years when I was a child. I was a kid back then, wasn’t very mature, and resented being dragged there twice a week for lessons, and wanted out. I got what I wanted. But now, I feel like I’m more mature and remember all the great things about it, and want to go back somewhat. But it might be too late now. Sifu, Lester, everyone at Tai Yim, if you’re reading this, keep doing what you’re doing. You teach an amazing school and I miss you all. Anyone interested in this school, it is great and everyone there pushes you to do your best. They have lion dances, martial arts competitions, sparing, Tai Chi, and so much more. Don’t take it for granted like I did.
Response: Thanks so much for the very kind words! It is never too late to join us again! We will be opening post-covid as soon as possible, but in the meantime, we are offering virtual classes via zoom so that you can join from anywhere right now! Check our website: taiyimkungfu.com for class sign up info! TYKF

Brian Loebig: Very disappointed in the management of Tai Yim Kung Fu. My wife was deployed and we moved to a new house, but they refused to allow us out of the 12mo. contract or even pay a cancellation fee. Contracts without conscience equals cutthroat. They have not reached out to me yet as stated in their response. My son was a client so you've had my contact info...but since this was 4 years ago, it's really a bit late to try and resolve at this point.
Response: UPDATE: Brian, We see that you updated your review and corrected the name from Tai Lung to Tai Yim 2 days ago (based on our initial response), but you still have not accepted our invitation to call us so that we can address and resolve the issue for you. We reached out to you at the time of your initial review and multiple times over the past couple of years in an effort to resolve this and you remain unresponsive. Something seems amiss, as we always strive to work with our students to find a satisfactory resolution in the rare instance that there is a problem, and we remain committed to do so now. Please call us at 301-889-1428 and we will gladly work with you to understand and solution your concerns. Thanks so Much! TYKF OUR INITIAL RESPONSE: We are very sorry to read this post as it is extremely rare for us to have any dissatisfied customers or students. We are also concerned that the post may be in error as you reference Tai Lung. We are the Tai Yim Kung Fu School. We have attempted to reach out to you multiple times so that we may confirm and better understand the issue. We invite you to call us at 301-889-1428 so that we might have the opportunity to work together to resolve any valid concern. Thanks so much! TYKF

Mieu Lee: Authentic Southern Style Hung Fut Kung Fu! There are imitators but no one can come close to Tai Yim Kung Fu! Great for self defense and discipline!
Response: Thanks so much Mieu! Really GREAT seeing you on the zoom classes!

Torre Halscott: Fantastic training in many forms of traditional Shaolin kung fu. Highly recommend it!
Response: Thanks Torre!! Please join us for online zoom classes. Check the website for the schedule!

Kevin Lyles: Very authentic, traditional and family oriented. I moved an hour and a half away and still makes the drive. True quality kung fu
Response: So delighted to have you as part of our family Kevin. Thanks so much for your commitment to the school!
