Our family is very happy we found Sunny Tang for our little guy to train in martial arts. It's been over a year now since our 5 year old joined, and we love the space (Scarborough studio) and love the Sifus here. It's great discipline for kids in a world where kids need more of it and not less. We definitely recommend Sunny Tang to those who are looking to give their kids - or even yourself -some structure, discipline, fitness, self-confidence building, fortitude and learning respect.
I started my son here when he was 5 years old and I hang around to watch the classes. I find the classes and the sifus excellent for building self-confidence, overall respect, general fitness/conditioning and teamwork skills. The classes are varied and are taught in 5 day cycles, and each day focuses on a different set of skills. The work the kids hard and fast, but surprisingly, they catch on quite quickly and most of all, they enjoy it. You can see the little ones unfocused at the beginning, but see them quickly learning and following along. There is no coddling, but there is lots of encouragement given and correction as required. There are usually 2 sifus teaching the class, so your child is always given the attention he/she needs. Teamwork? yes! The sifus encourage children to help each other and never leave their partners behind. They sometimes will have students stand at the front to lead the group, also helping with their leadership skills and self-confidence. At the end of the class, they huddle to review the activities of the day and identify what each child demonstrated well during class. My son always leaves happy regardless of the mood he was in when he got there. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I definitely recommend Sunny Tang's.
I studied martial arts here for about 3 years. Although expensive, it was worth it. In those 3 years not only did I study Wushu and become a better athlete, I made lasting friendships, met amazing people, and learned to see the world in a different way. The skills they taught me were not only jumps, kicks, and punches, but many life skills as well. Performing and competing taught me to be comfortable in front of large crowds. Sifu Alan's tough love and different coaching techniques taught me how to adapt to changes and taught me responsibility. There are many great things to say about this place, it gave my mind and my body a workout at the same time, improved my mental health and my physical health. 5/5 loved it!
Sunny Tang is a place to get real martial arts training. Grandmaster Tang is part of the martial arts family to Bruce Lee and studied with master Ip Man himself.
