Zong Wu Men Internal Fighting Arts

Internal Kung Fu in Northern Virginia and the DC Metro Area

– Our School –

At Zong Wu Men Internal Fighting Arts we are a group dedicated to the study of Baguazhang and the Internal Arts. We are passionate about training these arts for life with both short and long-term benefits. The majority of our students have trained in other martial arts before finding us, and are lifelong aficionados of the martial arts in general.

We currently have class near the Mosaic District on Tuesday night from 7-9pm and on Friday night from 8-10pm. If you are interested in class, contact me at george@zongwumen.com for more information. Please include information about yourself relevant to the martial arts so that we can see if you would be a good fit for our class.
