Wah Lum is one of the better decisions I ever made. It can be difficult when considering the legitimacy of a martial art school, but Wah Lum is as good as it gets. A strong emphasis is put on the tradition and history as well as the martial art itself. The walls are covered with awards, art, and ancient weapons from Chinas past, and it really adds to the feel of the temple. Every class also begins and ends with a bow of respect to the old teachers ranging back over a hundred years that made the temple a reality today. The place has a legitimate history to it, and its not one youll forget.On a more practical note, the workouts are as intense or gentle as you make them out to be. There is a general pace thats set for the basic classes, and youre encouraged to workout as hard as you can, but there is no shame if youre unable to keep up with the high kicks like the more advanced students just yet. Also, when youre first starting out, they will take you aside to give you more personalized classes and teach you the movements. After youve completed a couple tests, the advanced class is opened as an option if youd like, and thats where the sweating really begins. In addition to riding a stationary bike at home, this place helped me lose 40lbs. I really cant think of anything better to say than that.Wah Lum is a fantastic martial arts school. The movements are interesting, the exercises practical, Its an experience that will stick with you forever, and as long as youre willing to put in the hard work youll get a lot out of it.
