One year ago, with great excitement, I wrote to all our students announcing that Grandmaster Jiang had passed his legacy, the Chinese Martial Arts Academy, on to me. I accepted this honor with great pleasure and a huge sense of responsibility.
In the letter I spoke of making improvements to our school. We have added eight new classes to the schedule and have grown a substantial children’s Kungfu program. As promised, Shifu has continued to teach every day on which his classes are held.
It is now with the same excitement and pleasure as last year that I am making a very special announcement to you all today.
The Chinese Martial Arts Academy (CMAA) will be moving to a new location- our very own home!
What this means for you!
1. We will have our very own home! Just as when Grandmaster Jiang originally founded the school we will again have our very own facility. With a new open space, specialized mat system, new bathrooms, ample parking and air conditioning (among many other wonderful improvements) you are sure to love our new home!
2. New classes at regularly scheduled and more convenient times! Not only will we be in a SAFE, new, clean and spacious facility of our own, we will be adding many more classes and new programs as well!
3. Convenient location just off the Northway! CMAA’s new home is located at The Crossroads Plaza in Latham:
The Chinese Martial Arts Academy 3A Johnson Rd Latham, NY 12110
4. Monthly Events! CMAA can now host events more easily than ever. You may now look forward to monthly Kids Kungfu Parties, Taichi- Kungfu documentaries/films, seminars (on everything from Simplified Chen Taiji and Traditional Shaolin Black Tiger to meditation and nutritional talks), Saturday Fight Night showings and many other great events!
We are working around the clock to make this transition as smooth as possible. While it’s hard to predict the exact date, we are hoping to be operational and make our move in to our new home by early September!
This is a very exciting time for all of us. Thank you for your continued support. I will keep you all updated with more information as we move forward on many new and exciting initiatives!
