Values Based Education
Each Animal teaches a virtue or classic moral quality that helps build character and success in life. By studying virtues you gain skills to succeed in any situation and the ability to pick the right “Animal Power or Virtue” for whatever situation you find yourself in. These lessons are a great way to discuss and learn important life lessons.
More Fun Stuff in the Fu Books!
The “Fu” or “Lucky Fun” Books are a great addition to this class that everyone can enjoy. They include great art and drawings to color, puzzles, mazes and more including tons of pictures of every activity and movement or position with detailed descriptions.

Completing The Monkey Course and earning your patch is definitely something you can feel proud of. And maybe even brag about and show off a little!
Hone your Problem Solving Skills with the Monkeys’ Virtue of Cleverness
The Monkey teaches how to solve problems with seven steps. We also use homework and discussion questions to build skills and learn the lessons.

Every Animal teaches a Body Mechanic and the Monkey teaches how to turn quickly without loosing your balance or being clumsy. It is a great skill to have and fun to practice!
Learn the unique Monkey Moves and Monkey Leap and then put them together into a great Monkey Form.
The Monkey moves start out easy but interesting and different. Then they start to evolve and test your right left brain coordination and build it. In the end you have a great fast “Monkey Form: with an exciting Monkey Leap in the middle. The Monkey moves are based on the classical combat oriented style of Kung Fu called Xing Yi Quan or Form and Will Boxing.
Fun For the Whole Family!
Animal Power is perfect for the whole family and works best when parents are involved. The best way to do Animal Power is with your child together. Then you both get exercise and can share the fun building great memories in the process. However, Animal Power also works great if parents help out with the Fu Books, reading them to your child, appreciating them, and admiring their progress with lots of encouragement!
“I First learned Kung Fu with my father when I was 15. It was one of the best things we did together and we both had many fond memories of our classes and moments going to and from class together. I love our parent kid teams and Monkey Power is perfect for you!” – Sifu Jensen
You CAN to learn Monkey Fu in the Teahouse Starting June 19th!
A review from one of our Awesome Monkey Students:
“Our daughter attended the Kung Fu Animal Power classes and loved it so much. She looked forward to classes each week. She also could not wait to show her friends her new moves after each class.
She used to attend the Kung Fu lessons at The Lycee Francais de San Francisco. With COVID-19, Rachel and Sifu Jensen moved the classes online.
For each online class weekly, we had a short live session with the Sifu Jensen to talk about the animal in focus.
Jensen provided secured video links to pre-recorded videos for my daughter to follow. The videos were of high quality with Sifu Jensen painstakingly explaining each move.
The set of videos each week starts with a warm-up session. It continues with the new moves to learn for the week. It ends with a 5 minutes meditation video.
There is also a short video each week that teaches a few Chinese words related to the animal studied.
The videos are very well made and well structured.
As parents, we could not have asked for better content. We were impressed with the effort put into the delivery of content.
My daughter completed the training for the Monkey last week. She received a patch by mail and she watched the patch ceremony. She is very proud of herself.
Thank you Rachel and Sifu Jensen!”
