KUNG FU INSTRUCTOR
My name is Corey Hopp.
I am a 16th generation desciple of the Sanfengpai tradition of Wudang Kungfu, a second degree blackbelt in Taekwondo, and Math teacher and tutor.
I love martial arts for itself. I enjoy the sweat and challenge to my body and the rewards I find in the movements.
I also love the discipline that it teaches that translates to other parts of my life, the way practice clears my heart and mind and helps me face the world as a more patient and compassionate person.
I love the communities that grow when people practice martial arts together, when people watch each other grow and support each other through the harder lessons. I love sharing everything I love about martial arts with other people. Come practice with me, and you will love it too.

About my courses
Wudang Traditional Kungfu focuses on cultivating the body inside and out as a means of cultivating the mind and spirit.
It is a way to make yourself stronger, more flexible, and more confident both mentally and physically.
Wudang Kungfu is a lot about balance of opposites.
Train hard at a martial art to reach greater peace with yourself and with others.
Achieve greater power by practicing greater relaxation. Overcome by yielding. Master complex skills by drilling the most basic ones.
Kungfu is a great individual practice, but it is best enjoyed with other practitioners who inspire and encourage you.
Classes will involve partner work and a positive group work ethic.
