Sifu Bryan Bagnas has been involved with Tai Chi since his first class back in 1994. At that time, he supplemented his Hawaiian Kempo training with the Yang Style Tai Chi classes. In 1995, he learned Fu Style Tai Chi along with the family's other internal arts.

Inspired by the World Tai Chi Day (WTCD), Mr. Bagnas held his first event at a local park in 2001 and has continued the practise every year since. Golden Leopard Kempo, Mr. Bagnas' school in San Diego, now offers free Tai Chi classes to students during the run up to WTCD.

The event is held the last Saturday of April. Please support the school and the world by showing up and practicing your Tai Chi.


The International Alliance Of Martial Arts Schools (IAOMAS) is a student support system. Nothing very flashy, just the co-operation of Martial Arts schools worldwide to allow all martial arts students to continue to train wherever they go (i.e. on holiday, vacation, work, etc.). It's good for all students involved (through the club) and good for instructors to be able to offer training where ever their students are in the world. In a nutshell, you get two-weeks free training at participating schools.
