About Pa-Kua Orange

The Pa-Kua Orange school was established in January, 2002. The first classes for the school were taught at the YWCA and then at Hart Park in Orange.
The first rented space for the school was located on Chapman Avenue, right next to a neighborhood gas station. Martial arts and yoga were the classes taught there.
Quickly outgrowing that space, the school was moved to a larger Chapman Avenue location on July 2, 2002 and remained there for 3 years. On July 25, 2005, the Pa-Kua Orange school added another location on the corner of Chapman Avenue and Olive. The two locations were later consolidated and moved to the school’s present location, 55 Plaza Square, on February 2, 2009.
For the 10-year anniversary of Pa-Kua Orange, a huge renovation of the Old Town Orange Plaza location took place. The project involved students, instructors, masters, family and community members working together. The school, the way it is today, is the finished product of that renovation.
The Pa-Kua Orange school provides classes for all ages. Training in any aspect of the art encourages physical, mental and spiritual growth and incorporates the ancient Chinese traditions of Pa-Kua.
Pa-Kua Orange is a committed member of the Pa-Kua International League. The International League of Pa-Kua was founded by Master Giordano Magliacano
(see Pa-Kua History). We have the honor of learning from Itinerant Masters who visit from all over the world to teach Pa-Kua. This makes it possible for the highest ranking Black Belts in a particular geographic area to continue taking classes and courses. It also provides the opportunity to have internationally certified belt evaluations for the students.

There are Pa-Kua schools in Oregon, Idaho, Florida, Nevada and Colorado. In New York there are schools located in Manhattan, Long Island and Brooklyn. The International League also has schools in many parts of Europe, Argentina, Brazil and one in New Zealand.

Kids Martial Arts

Kids Martial Arts is given to kids from age 4 and up. Children significantly benefit from the system that is built to suit their needs.The martial arts games, the kicks and punches, as well as the connections with other kids found through Pa-Kua Martial Arts, serve to increase the child's confidence, self-esteem, and social skills. At the same time Pa-Kua Martial Arts teaches the child to respect peers and elders, works on the student's focus and control, and offers the student with the tools required for the full life that lies ahead. This always occurs in a positive atmosphere.

The many benefits of Pa-Kua Martial Arts for kids are clearly noticeable and shown in the child's school work, behavior at home, and interaction with family or friends. The classes for children are conducted in a completely safe and professional atmosphere, by Instructors and Masters who make sure the children develop their skills in complete safety.

Yoga-

Practice- The Children will work on many different exercises such as stretching and controlling their breathing, and holding positions that will require balance, strength, or flexibility, sometimes requiring all three as the student progresses. This is always done in a fun and enthusiastic environment with music.

Benefits- When we are born we have amazing flexibility. Then, gradually as we get older, we lose that natural flexibility and must work at it. By having your child attend these children’s yoga classes they are able to stretch and maintain that flexibility throughout their life. Yoga has also been proven by case studies to help them regulate their emotions, manage stress, and calm themselves. Studies now show that they may also choose better foods to eat and engage in more physical activity than children who do not study yoga.

Most Pa-Kua schools offer an introductory class in which the student can try out a class before enrolling. The parents can even stay and observe their child participate in the class.
