Rhode Island Kung Fu Club

The Rhode Island Kung Fu Club is a non-profit organization that trains Providence-area youth in the martial and cultural arts of kung fu and Chinese Lion dance.

They have taught the martial and cultural arts of kung fu and lion dance to since 2007. The RIKFC shares these arts with both Chinese and non-Chinese audiences throughout the state in many different settings, from demonstrations to martial arts competitions.

Venues where RIKFC have performed include WaterFire in Providence, Pawtucket Arts Festival, FirstWorks Providence, Rhode Island Heritage Festival, and numerous other cultural events and fundraisers for charities and schools. The local Chinese community also calls on the RIKFC to perform at cultural events throughout the year, particularly at Lunar New Year.

RIKFC members have participated in numerous martial arts competitions throughout New England and the east coast. Demonstrations and competitions are not primary motivations for our group’s practice of kung fu, but can serve as valuable complements to a young person’s training, while providing opportunities for personal growth.

Their mission is to utilize martial arts training to assist young people in their maturation and growth. The effort and commitment required to develop kung fu and lion dance skills cultivates patience and perseverance, which are cornerstone ideals of the Rhode Island Kung Fu Club. Developing these traits will serve their members well in the future.

Kung fu is a traditional Chinese martial and cultural art. As is the case with most challenging undertakings, kung fu requires consistency, diligence, and time. Through practice, patience and perseverance, progress can be achieved and lead to physical and mental benefits.
