Jing Ying Institute of Kung Fu & Tai Chi
Founded in 2000, Jing Ying Institute of Kung Fu & Tai Chi’s award-winning programs are available for children and adults 6 days a week. In addition to top-notch classes, seminars with top masters from around the world are offered throughout the year, as well as numerous free and low-cost workshops to the community.
Their Kung Fu and Tai Chi programs place an emphasis on whole-body fitness and proper body mechanics, providing the best possible way of defending oneself and improving longevity.
Their programs are for people of all levels of fitness. Their youngest student is 2 and the oldest student is 92! While Jing Ying has a robust children’s program, about 70% of their students are teens/adults, and they are known for their family-friendly environment.
The school’s experienced, professional staff is led by two instructors who began studying martial arts over 25 years ago and includes national champions and security professionals.
Their spacious facility offers over 5,000 square feet divided into three main training areas. One space has a cushioned floor while the other two have wood floors. There are mirrored walls, changing rooms, a lounge area, and a pro-shop for books, videos, weapons, clothing and more. There are also heavy bags, dip stands, pull up bars and other exercise equipment. Wireless internet is available so you can also get some work done if you're not in class.
Improving lives and building community is Jing Ying’s passion. They have raised over $35,000 for charity through fundraising events at their studio and happily donate to local schools, and other organizations.
It is no wonder that Jing Ying Institute has won many area awards:
Best of Annapolis; the Capital Readers Choice Award; the Best of Severna Park ; the Best of the Bay; the Gazette Readers Choice Award, ASPIRE Community Leader Award, and the SBA Women in Business Champion.
Just like kung fu and tai chi, Jing Ying Institute has stood the test of time. Stop by for a free class and see for yourself what makes this school so special.
"An adult interested in martial arts or a parent looking for a great school for their children will find exactly that in Jing Ying. [They are] an excellent example of teaching martial arts while helping and caring for all the families they touch."
