“Wish I’d have found it sooner.” –Dan K, longtime student
Finding a martial arts school in Los Angeles is easy. There’s probably one walking distance from your house. So why do students and parents from all over LA hop on the freeway to train with us?
California Academy of Martial Arts in Burbank was founded by Sifu Todd Shawn Tei in 1995. Since then, we’ve taught thousands of students from all over the world.
The Best Los Angeles Wing Chun Program
If you’re a parent looking for a children’s martial arts program, you want fun, engaging classes – a structured curriculum that will bring out your child’s best qualities: focus, discipline, leadership, and confidence – and teachers who really know their art, not retrained gymnastics coaches wearing black belts.
If you’re an adult or teen searching for a Wing Chun Sifu, you want to learn like Bruce Lee did. You’re ready to stop dreaming, and start doing the things you need to do to achieve your physical, mental, and spiritual goals.
Sifu Tei’s Kung Fu curriculum focuses on authentic Wing Chun as taught by Ip Man and his sons, Ip Ching and Ip Chun. Our lineage traces back through Ip Man all the way to the monks of the Shaolin Temple.

Why Wing Chun?
There are so many great reasons to study Wing Chun Kung Fu.
Wing Chun is the best martial arts style for self-defense because it teaches strategies that work even if your attacker is bigger or stronger than you are. Every single Wing Chun lesson will hone your reflexes and instincts, giving you the tools you need to feel confident anywhere.
Wing Chun for Children
Beyond self-defense, both children and adults benefit from Kung Fu’s ability to teach self-control, self-discipline, and self-respect.
After a few months in our program parents commonly report better behavior at school, more gratitude and patience at home, and increased self-confidence and ambition. Through Kung Fu training, our children learn that setting goals (and sticking to them) is the key to success.
Want your children to learn self-defense and street safety? Wing Chun was invented by a woman; it is naturally designed for smaller women and children to use. It is a life skills art, not a tournament style.
Wing Chun for Teens
Teen students make new friends and meet new role models. Wing Chun gives them the means to stay safe at college and beyond. Many teens join our staff as Assistant Instructors, providing a more valuable introduction to the working world than most “teen jobs” can provide.
Wing Chun for Women
Wing Chun offers the best self-defense for women because it was invented by a woman, for women. You can’t out-muscle a larger attacker or grapple multiple attackers, but you can use physics to disable anyone, of any size, if you train hard and stay confident.
Wing Chun for Men
If Wing Chun was invented by a woman, should men study Wing Chun? Bruce Lee certainly thought so. Many of today’s most famous male martial artists study Wing Chun, including Donnie Yen (star of Ip Man), Jackie Chan, Robert Downey Jr, Nicolas Cage, and Christian Bale. Wing Chun’s principles work regardless of size or strength.
