Who We Are

In the autumn of 2014, a Maryland Athletic Club (MAC) member and Kung Fu enthusiast Tanya Davis proposed offering a short-term, weekly class for the children of MAC members who were interested in an introduction to martial arts.   By its second anniversary, the Kung Fu “class” at the MAC was up to three days a week and included separate classes for intermediates, self-defense training and weapons. 

The MAC’s Kung Fu program became Three Branches Kung Fu School shortly before the United States Kuo Shu Federation National tournament in 2017.  Most sessions have 15 to 20 students, and two of the original four students received their black sashes in November, 2019.

Starting age is 5 years old!

Classes in Patterson Park as we await return to MAC gym are two group class per week: one at 3:30 or 4:15 on Wed. and the second at 9:30a on Sunday, for six weeks: $90.

Once we return to the gym, Cost per 12-class, six week session is $120 for members of MAC Harbor East gym and $150 for non-members. 

Email for specific park location and payment options.

Three Branches offers instruction in the Northern Shaolin Kung Fu style of Tien Shan Pai.  Mastery of eight forms (and one tournament competition) is required to earn the school’s black sash, including at least one weapon form and one two-person form. Students test for promotion after a minimum time at each level.
