San Diego is everywhere. You may find several Karate San Diego
schools in a few blocks. Most people liked Karate before Bruce
lee, Jet Li and Jackie Chan's movies introduced Kung Fu to
America. In recent years, Chinese Martial Arts, inclouding Kung
Fu, Wushu, Tai Chi, and SanShou, have been gaining
dominance. Many people have come to appreciate like Kung Fu
after watching such recent movies as "Crouching Tiger, Hidden
Dragon," Jet Li's "Hero", and all-American Kung Fu movies like
"Matrix" and "Charlie's Angels". If you are interested in
learning Kung Fu / Wushu / Kungfu here in San Diego, please
visit the JING institute! We have the best and most caring
Chinese Martial Arts instructors.

The Wushu Taichi
Center in San Luis Obispo, CA. Coach Wei Wei, teammate to the

to America. I also highly recommend Liu Yu's book,
Awakening the Sleeping Tiger. Incidentally, we have a few copies of
Awakening on-site at JING :)

Wushu community. You can also find their videos on YouTube; a great example is the
