HTCMLI OST Programs Partially Funded by Learn24

Learn24 is a network of before- and after-school, and summer programs, also called out-of-school time (OST) programs.

Youth who regularly participate in quality OST programs benefit in terms of their academic performance, social and emotional development, and health and wellness. In addition, youth participation in OST programs can result in: improved school attendance; higher graduation rates; lower dropout rates; stronger academic performance; and improved positive behaviors and work habits.

Kung Fu

Hung Tao Choy Mei teaches children and adults fitness, focus, and self-defense. Kung Fu training requires no equipment, just hard work and a focused mind.

We teach Jow Ga Kung Fu to adults of all ages, for short or long stretches of time. We understand that adults have demanding work schedules, and go out of town, have looming deadlines, or are passing through on assignment. We have classes seven days a week, but you practice when you can. Our rates are low and we have no contract. We ask only that when you come you work hard.

Paul Robeson Mural U Street NW

The mural concept stems from the Hung Tao Choy Mei Leadership Institutes efforts to introduce Paul Robeson to the present generation; and, re-introduce him to previous generations through the Paul Robeson "Here I Stand" Award gala at the Lincoln Theatre. Lead muralists Cory Stowers and Andrew Katz, their artist conclave (Eric B. Ricks, Maria Miller, Serena Z, Ernesto Zelaya, Jaa), the funding of DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, and permission of the building owner brought Paul Robeson, larger than life, to U Street NW.

Hung Tao Choy Mei is planning a stellar 2021 year of activities that will shine a bright light on DC's schoolchildren.

HTCMLI teaches a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math plus Arts & Culture (STEMAC) program. Utilizing the powerful local resources of NASA personnel, museum professionals and a city full of world-class STEM practitioners, we are bringing DC's youth to the doorstep of space exploration.

Resting is a part of training.


It is said that there are two things you train in martial arts: the 'seen', and the 'unseen'.

Sometimes it is described as external and internal energy, or strength/power and chi. But let's keep it simple, because it is challenging to train that which you cannot see. The simple answer is that self-defense takes hard work over time.
