US Martial Arts Academy, Ltd --- 10540 York Road, Suite J --- Cockeysville, Maryland 21030 --- 410-561-9882 --- A Self-Defense Kung Fu School for Families -- Children and Adults and a Tai Chi School for Adults for over 25 years! The Baltimore Sun's 2019 Best in Baltimore for Martial Arts Classes!
US Martial Arts Academy, Ltd will be holding a four-week Self-Defense Seminar beginning Tuesday, May 19th. The course will consist of four (4), 1 ½ hour classes over the course of four (4) weeks.
The primary goal of this course is to provide the participants (12 years of age and older) with a number of responses to common ways people are attacked or confronted. An effort will be made to expose the participants to what happens during an attack and some simple, effective ways they can respond. No prior martial arts experience is required!
The same material will be taught in each class each week so you can attend any of the classes each week and learn the same material. None of the material will only appear in a single class. We will introduce something in one class, then repeat and practice it in the next several classes so if you miss one class, it will be easy to catch up. Students may one of the following class times per week and are not limited to the same weekday for the four (4) week period.
Class times each week will be as follows:
o Tuesdays: 6:30 to 8:00pm
o Wednesdays: 7:00 to 8:30pm
o Thursdays: 6:30 to 8:00pm
The course will consist of four (4), 1 ½ hour classes over the course of four (4) weeks. The cost will be $100. All participants must be registered, sign a waiver, and payment must be received, prior to the start of the class. Participants should wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes (sweat pants, T-shirts, athletic shoes, etc.) and be prepared for a moderate work out.

Don’t forget, Sunday, June 8, 2014, Grandmaster Huang, world-wide leader of Tien Shan Pai, will be teaching two seminars for USMALtd students. This is a rare chance to learn techniques and a form we do not teach at USMALtd directly from Grandmaster Huang.
The 10:00 to 12:00pm seminar is the Qin Na – Joint Locking Seminar. Our style of Kung Fu teaches how to control an attacker by bending a person’s joints – wrist, elbow, shoulder, etc. – with little effort. While we teach the basic set of Qin Na techniques, Grandmaster Huang teaches different ones and shows how you can apply the basic Qin Nas in different ways. This seminar is intended for Orange Belts/Sashes, ages 10 and up.
The 1:00 to 3:00pm seminar is the Black Tiger Fist There are many different empty hand forms besides the ones we learn here at USMALtd. This is another, traditional Kung Fu form with punch/kick combinations, jump kicks, breaks and other techniques at the intermediate to advanced level. Since we do not teach this form as part of our curriculum, this is a rare chance to learn something most students at our school don’t know. This seminar is intended for Blue Belts/Sashes, ages 10 and up.
If you are interested and have not registered yet, please call (410) – 561 – 9882.
Grandmaster Huang taught two seminars on Sunday, October 27. The first seminar was Short Staff Fighting techniques and the second seminar was Gong Li Quan.
Short Staff Fighting techniques were created to deal with an attacker holding a short weapon, such as a club or short staff. However, for those students interested in Weapons Sparring at the tournament level, these techniques would also apply.
Gong Li Quan is an intermediate level form emphasizing power from the Mantis style.
Grandmaster Huang is offering two seminars on Sunday, October 27, 2013, here, at U.S. Martial Arts Academy, Ltd. The first seminar, is Short Staff Fighting Techniques from 10:00 – 12:00pm and Gong Li Quan from 1:00 – 3:00pm.
Short Staff Fighting Techniques are not a form but techniques that could be used in weapons sparring competition as well as good general knowledge in self defense. These techniques are the Chinese method of using a short staff.
Gong Li Quan is an empty hand dynamic intermediate to advanced form that emphasizes power and speed. The name of the form translates to Ultimate Power or Supreme Power. It would be a good form to use at tournament if practiced and mastered.
This is a wonderful opportunity to learn from Grandmaster Huang. For the Short Staff Fighting Techniques seminar, the USMALtd student should be at a Blue Sash or higher and at least 10 years old. For the Gong Li Quan seminar, the USMALtd student should be a Purple Sash or higher and at least 10 years old.
The seminars will start promptly at 10am and 1:00pm. Please arrive at least 20 minutes early. All students must be warmed up and having stretched before lining up for Grandmaster at the beginning of the seminar. It is extremely disrespectful to arrive late for Grandmaster. There will be a one hour break between the seminars for lunch. Students taking both seminars should either bring a lunch or go get lunch nearby.
