Martial Arts Classes In Alexandria

My name is master Chuck Perry and I am the owner of American Kung Fu Academy. When I was a child I began my martial arts journey and the positive impact it had on my life was remarkable. It was always my dream to some day own my own school and when I opened American Kung Fu Academy in 1993, I made a commitment to our community in alexandria to create an enjoyable environment for students to improve their fitness while building confidence they can carry into their everyday lives. It is my privilege and honor to take the the knowledge I have received in my own martial arts training and pass it on to the students at my school.

We are dedicated to providing the foremost in quality kung-fu instruction that emphasizes individual achievement of health in both mind and body. American Kung Fu Academy is delighted to bring you authentic chinese martial arts instruction in a traditional manner but with a modern flavor.

Our purpose is to furnish you with a distinct and systemized program from which you can obtain many benefits.



We teach all our members to focus on and be present in the moment - and in this age of distractions and sensory overload, this is a skill which returns immediate results in all aspects one's life.  Here are some interesting facts about our Martial Arts School:

  • Our members are from all walks of life; we have students, attorneys, doctors, engineers, military and law enforcement all training in a fun, team oriented family environment;
  • We have kids that have been training for years that leave to top colleges and universities in the country, thanks in part to the discipline and focus on hard work they learned through martial arts.  This is something we take a great amount of pride in. 
  • There are always new generations of individuals and families coming in to pursue the ongoing legacy.  It is a tradition in martial arts to pass down the knowledge one receives in their training and many students become instructors, often ending up owning their own schools.  

At American Kung Fu Academy
we strive to instill three qualities in our students:


Holding someone or something with higher regard.

At American Kung Fu Academy respect is our first value. We believe that without respect for one's self, one's elders, one's peers, one's teachers, and one's family it is impossible to cultivate the type of growth necessary to excel. However, respect does not stop here. We should strive to reach a higher plane of understanding. This means we should earnestly attempt to understand other people, cultures, religions, values, arts, and ways of life. This better understanding will foster tolerance among people whether young are old. We all have a right to be here and disrespect is not tolerated here.



The quality one possesses to be modest and politely submissive.

Our second value, humility, teaches us another important lesson. It is never acceptable in life to be boastful, arrogant or rude. This is even more true at our school. We should always strive to be proud of what we do while being careful to not consider ourselves better than or on a higher level than anyone else. Everyone who does anything can improve upon that talent in some fashion. While it is true that some people have natural talents and abilities they too must learn to be humble.



A calm, controlled behavior.

While discipline is our third value it should not be considered a lower value. In fact, all of them carry the same amount of importance. Discipline will carry you far in any aspect of life. At our school you must remain disciplined. Coming to class, setting aside time to practice when not in class, stretching daily, and all of the other things we discuss in class require discipline on the part of one's self. Remember that all of our black sashes were white sashes that did not quit. This is because they were able to respect one another as well as themselves, remain humble enough to listen to what they were learning, and disciplined enough to keep coming back!


Imagine yourself as a stronger, more confident individual in the best shape of your life. I want to personally invite you to take advantage of our introductory trial offer, and turn that vision into a reality.  

It would be a privilege to meet you and your child to have them step into the wonderful world of martial arts.
