Jade Forest is a multi-resource martial arts training facility. We offer core curriculums in the Praying Mantis and Bak Sil Lum (Northern Shaolin) styles of Kung Fu as well as programs in traditional Yang Style Tai Chi and the rarer internal Liu Ho Ba Fa system. In addition to our regularly scheduled classes, we also offer workshop / seminar presentations on related martial and healing disciplines.
Jade Forest Kung Fu/ Tai Chi/ Internal Arts is the South Shore’s finest martial arts training facility. Sifu John C. Loupos founded Jade Forest as an autonomous entity in 1995 after having taught in affiliation with other teachers and organizations since 1968.
Jade Forest offers separate programs for Pee Wee’s, Children, Juniors, and Adults (Kung Fu or Tai Chi), and prides itself on the friendly, family-like atmosphere that characterizes our school. READ MORE…
