Kung fu means hard work to achieve skill. Valerie Lee offers creative health and fitness classes and seminars from traditional northern-style Chinese martial arts and Chinese medicine perspectives. With the wisdom of these arts, learn effective exercises for better health, improved clarity, strength and focus. Welcome and thank you for your site visit.

Young Adults and Teens My years of experience as a teacher at San Francisco State University has movtivated and inspired me to recognize the importance of defining strategies for students to manage a healthy lifestyle in school. Focus is on intergrating Kung Fu skills into daily life with an emphasis on peer co-operation, and communication.
