Edgewater Kung Fu Academy is an award winning, nationally recognized family oriented martial arts school and we believe in education for life! Our main objective is to provide you with high quality Shaolin Martial Arts instruction in a positive, safe and encouraging environment.

Train with experts in Kung Fu! 

The Academy was founded by Sifu Karl Romain, who became a Martial Arts World Champion at the age of 22 and now holds a 6th Degree Black Sash. Sifu Romain has been practicing Martial Arts for over 38 years and was selected by Grand Master Willy Lin to be one of only eight disciples in the world.

The Chief Instructor, Sifu Robinson, has been practicing Martial Arts for the past 13 years and holds a 3rd Degree Black Sash. He has been personally trained by Sifu Romain for over 10 years. He is an exceptional instructor, and parents and children alike view him as one of the very best.

What if you're a total beginner or nervous to start something really cool but new? That's ok!

Over the course of your training, you will gradually be exposed to a variety of extremely effective self-defense techniques that will give you confidence and a very high level of overall physical fitness.

For the past 13 years, we've been committed to building and developing our students to become the best they can possibly be in Edgewater.

As students train to become Black Sash Leaders, they will experience progress, growth and change in the academy and in many areas of their lives. Our classes include Kung Fu, Tai Chi & Qi Gong, Weapons and Chinese Kickboxing.

Our students come from all walks of life and start at different fitness levels. We love to work with beginners and elite athletes alike. No matter what your starting level is, you'll get a great workout, gain lean muscle, and learn techniques to keep you and your family safe.

Controlled, fast-paced, and fun movements are led by expert instructors. They meet you where your starting level is. Many of our students have no prior experience...and they just can't get enough of our classes! 

In addition to all of those amazing benefits above, our students ALSO experience:

  • Boosted Self-Esteem
  • Better Teamwork & Goal Setting Skills
  • Outrageous Core Strength & Hip Mobility
  • Mind Blowing Gains in Flexibility & Energy
  • Fit Friends For Life
Students use our classes as a highly effective training tool for personal defense, a stellar boost to weight loss and fitness gains, or even as a stand-alone martial art.

Safe & Clean, just for you! We take great pride in making sure you have the most up-to-date, professional grade equipment, and a grime free environment to squash sickness and colds before they can spread.

Family Fun For Everyone! 

Edgewater Kung Fu Academy is family oriented and offers fitness options appropriate for each member of the family. Some families train together, for example father and son in the same Kung Fu class.

Mom might take Chinese kickboxing and grandmom and granddad take Tai Chi together. No matter what your family dynamic might be, we try our hardest to make all families feel welcome and foster a real sense of community.

One of our parents stated, "Everyone meets, learns, receives guidance, and bonds here. Many sports programs can offer various levels of coaching, wisdom, guidance, social opportunities. Edgewater Kung Fu brings that to an entirely new level. The people who come here find: balance, wellness, confidence, morality, encouragement, mental and physical health and friendship."
