Three party options down below (Basic, Deluxe, X-Treme) and three Saturday time slots to choose from (10:30am, 12:30pm, 2:30pm).
You bring the birthday cake and send the invitations. (Cake should be suitable for cutting in half with a samurai sword). We handle everything else: Online activity waiver, party set-up, sizzle time game, the 30-inch pizza, juice boxes, real kung fu class, thunder paper, the board breaking for birthday child, the cake cutting ceremony with "real" samurai sword, the coffee from Kick Butt Café (for X-treme option), goodie bags (simple toys, no candy in them) and the party clean-up. :-)
Efficient for parents, fun for kids. Party starts on time and then ends 75 minutes later. Parents should stay, from start to finish, because all parents get to participate, with their child, in the kung fu class. All party participants should arrive no later than 15 minutes before the start time. Birthday childs' family should arrive 30 minutes early to set up any extra food, snacks, drinks or decorations you want to bring. Plenty of parking right out front.
Book at least 3 weeks in advance as preferred times & days go FAST!
Note: All party participants must be 4 years old or older unless the party is for a child turning 4. This is because 3 year olds and younger risk getting knocked over by older kids during the activities.
Our daughter Nadia attended a friends party here on Saturday. I must admit, when she learned she would be doing Kung fu, her initial response was fear of getting hurt. I encouraged her to listen closely to the rules and to only do things she feels capable of. Well, by the time the party ended, she was so involved and excited that she forgot all about her “fear” and was the first to volunteer to chop through a wooden block. She nailed it!! I am so proud and so excited to be joining master Gohring’s family. She will have her first official class on Wed. A phenomenal place!!
She’d never done Kung Fu before and I showed her your birthday promo. She was very excited about the “karate chop” on the board and cutting cake with the sword. She was excited and happy the whole time because she was able to play, boost her confidence with new skills.
I’m pretty sure her favorite things were the cake, having all her friends around, using the giant sword “for 5 year olds”, and the board breaking. She mentioned her knuckles hurt after breaking board but seemed ok with that. Florence, Adelaides baby sister was also mesmerized by the sword so I think she’s already planning her future party!
I liked that the event was well organized. Kids were entertained and didn’t get a chance to loose interest in an activity as party kept a good pace. Parents all appreciated the coffee. I liked that I had some time to chat with parents while kids played/ had the lesson and that later parents participated with the kids in the class. Great idea to go from board breaking to cake. Good segway.
Instructor Richey took care of everything - (but the cake), invites, decorations, party favors, planning activities, cleaning up! The kids had fun, were entertained, and we had the chance to visit with our friends whose kids were attending my son's birthday party. It's a no brainer.
It was so much better than I anticipated. I avoided having to throw a birthday party for 8 years. This year, she begged with puppy eyes. She chose her Kung Fu school as the spot. The school sets up everything including invites, decorations, ordering pizza, providing juice boxes, coffee for the parents, goody bags and activities. There were organized activities that kept the kids busy and active the entire time. They enjoyed some so much they changed "One more time! One more time!". The parents even got to be involved - the kids got to practice punches towards their parents holding a target, and then the parents got to throw the punches while the kids practiced a block. At the end, the comment I heard over and over again was it was the best party they had ever attended - and at this age, we've all been to A LOT.
We had our five-year old daughter's birthday party there and it was perfect. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the experience (tons of laughing & running), they exercised and got to try something new. The staff was excellent with the kids and Instructor Richey did an excellent job leading the class and interacting with the kids. Two big thumbs up!

The kids had a great time, but more importantly, they teach children about manners, respect, and good judgement. I was impressed with their ability to keep 20 little 5 years olds engaged in this mature content. Nice!
