"Chi Wai has been great for my son and his progress so far has been amazing. He was incredibly shy at first but the team and other students have been encouraging and patient and he now has his white belt! The environment is welcoming and progress outside of the Dojo is just as important as inside which teaches the children the value and benefits of all round self discipline and hard work. To add to all that, daddy has now joined up too and has signed up to the inter-club competition!"
"I would highly recommend Chi Wai. My daughters only been going for about 3 months now but has already graded once in this time. This place came highly recommended to us and I can really see why. My daughter loves Chi Wai and is always so excited to go. She’s grown so much in confidence since going too and it’s a brilliant way for her to burn off some of her masses of energy."

"Great family run club where the instructors are fantastic with the children. My son started when he was 3 and a bit and still absolutely loves it! He has asked for his 5th birthday party to be at the dojo!"
"Could not be any better with the kids and it really is a family like environment.
The kids are encouraged and supported every step of the way.
We’ve seen a huge difference in confidence in the kids since they started here.
"A cliche I know but these guys truly treat all the children like family. I have seen my child's confidence grow, his coordination and fitness improve and for the first time is committed to attending a class as he can see the benefit too and really enjoys every session. . Would highly recommend for any age and gender."
"Me, my son and my wife have been attending Chi Wai for some time now. They make you feel very welcome and it's like and extension of your family. I have noticed such a amazing change in my son since being there and would recommend to anyone."
"This is a fab Academy we have been attending for 4 years now my eldest was a very shy little boy but Tiny Tigers has helped his confidence grow shown him discipline and helped him make new friends His now a Little Dragon and has been invited to become a SWAT and helps out with Tiny Tigers now my youngest now attends and his loving it"

"We would highly recommend Chi Wai Martial Arts & Fitness Centre. Alfie absolutely loves coming every week. He has a huge smile on his face throughout the entire lesson. He has met lots of new friends and has grown in confidence. There is a wonderful atmosphere here and it feels more like a community with all sorts of activities to get involved in."
"The best Kung fu school in Gloucestershire!!!"
"Brilliant Family fun for all. Fantastic friends made x"
"Four of our children have trained at Chi Wai and I've also done the fab fitness classes! Such a lovely family club that offers far more such as events and social days. Highly recommended!"
"⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 29th September 2021
As a parent of boys who can be a handful, I would say Sifu is a very patient teacher. He helps children focus on life skills that matter during their early years, helps children learn to be responsible, and inspires them to be the best version of themselves. It’s only been a few months but our boys are keen to attend their sessions and look forward to their training every week. Glad to have my boys train with Chi Wai!"

Chi Wai Family Martial Arts Centre is everything that you would want from a martial arts club. They are friendly, very knowledgeable, approachable and thoughtful. The teaching is relaxed but very thorough. I honestly cannot rate them highly enough. I have thoroughly enjoyed every class I have taken. Thank you."
"Amazing place, kids are loving it. Strict and funny at the same time! Glad we found them!"
"⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 18th July 2021
I can honestly say I think the school and all staff are amazing with my son especially with his extra needs of being hyperactive I find the staff strict in a good way but always rewarding with positive comments he’s only been there a few weeks but he seems to be loving it and doing well thank you so much to everyone"
"Facebook Recommendation 22nd May 2021

Can’t wait for more."

Whether you’re looking for a Martial Arts class to learn self defence or to get yourself fit, Chi Wai is the perfect place to go. I’ve been part of the Chi Wai family (and it really is a family) and it’s a decision I’ve not regretted. The academy has been kept running virtually through lockdown and the efforts of Sifu Lee and the other instructors to keep everyone, across all the age ranges, progressing and supported have been incredible. If I had children, I would have no hesitation in bringing them to Chi Wai and as an adult, I cannot describe the mental and physical health benefits of learning a Martial Art; you really do need to experience it. Only 4 years till my Black Belt!"

My son has been going to Chi Wai Kung Fu for over two years now and has built so much confidence as a result. The team are amazing, friendly, approachable and encouraging. When they started a new family kickboxing class, I joined myself to try something I’d always wanted to do but feared going into an intimidating club. It’s great fun and amazing fitness too 😂 and I’ve quickly gone from being self conscious and not having a clue to feeling like i do ‘get it’ and really enjoying it. They’ve gone above and beyond during the pandemic too, switching quickly to zoom classes and when we could go back into the Dojo, the level of cleanliness and discipline surrounding Covid regulations was outstanding."
"Honestly was such an unexpected positive experience, the relief I felt when i saw my son relaxing into it and enjoying it was just so lovely. It felt really nice doing this with him and being able to connect with him on a different level rather than standard’ Mum’ level.
I think anyone that has experiences with anxiety/autism/sensory issues etc would be okay with you guys. Small things like the room not echoing, it not being overly brightly lit, not being too big or covered in mirrors – all of these things can set off conditions or trigger symptoms in children and adults alike.
I think this is where he has struggled in the past. Classes have been in rented school halls or village halls where it is bright and loud and too open. You put 10-20 kids in a room like that and its no wonder it becomes over whelming.
I found your venue to be spot on."
