Chinese Martial Arts and Educational Center specializes in traditional Shaolin Kung fu, Taichi, Chinese Kick boxing (4 range system), Chin-na, Shuai chiao (Chinese wrestling), and Kali. Our mission is to provide all ages with the techniques and tools to have a healthy & well-balanced life. Our goal is to build confident leaders through the vehicle of martial arts training. We achieve this by giving our students not only the most efficient and practical self-defense tools available, but also personal development focused on setting/achieving your goals, leadership skills, and character development.

And I’m very PROUD that hundreds of families all over the Pleasantville & Nyack area are singing the praises of our programs and telling their friends and neighbors how much of a positive impact it’s having on their lives.

Chinese Martial Arts and Educational Center has become a landmark of Pleasantville & Nyack martial arts!

Physical and Mental Development

martial arts graduationOur members tell us that they feel our school is more of an institution of self-improvement, physically and mentally, rather than “just” a gym or some “activity”.

I pride myself on helping our adult members safely build muscle, quickly burn fat, gain flexibility, and release stress in a FUN, positive, and injury-free environment! And for the children, parents all over the Pleasantville & Nyack area give my martial arts classes credit for increasing their child’s ability to focus, building their self-esteem, and igniting a passion for self-improvement they would never have expected.

Much More than “Kicking & Punching”

kung fu kids classAlthough many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the “tools” that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about “yourself”.

When you train in our Pleasantville & Nyack martial arts program (which also serves other Rockland and Westchester towns), you take advantage of the best self-improvement system in the world.

Through the practice of physical self-defense skills, you will follow a blueprint for a successful life based on discipline, focus, and perseverance. Please take a few moments to browse this website, get familiar with us, then, take me up on my “No Strings Attached” offer, and see the benefits of my Pleasantville & Nyack martial arts program for yourself!

What people are saying

“Still Taking Lessons”

My daughter started when she was six years old, she is now 13, and is still taking lessons. Sifu Tom, is very experienced, knowledgeable and a fun instructor. Both kids and Adults enjoy his classes


“Brings out the Best”

Sifu Tom has taught my son for over 8 years. He is an excellent teacher who brings out the best in his students–from young children through adults. In addition to teaching the skills of Kung Fu, he focuses on respect and integrity, as he develops discipline and confidence in his students–skills that carry over into all areas of life. The atmosphere in the Pleasantville & Nyack schools is like an extended family get-together, where everyone is welcome. I am very thankful that my son has had an opportunity to learn and grow at CMAEC.


“30 years of knowledge and experience”

An excellent teacher with over 30 years of knowledge and experience. Sifu Tom – recently inducted into the Martial Arts Hall of Fame – knows how to get the best out of his students while balancing how the art of Traditional Kung Fu is applicable in real life situations and to understanding the foundation of Kung Fu. I have trained under Sifu Tom for 4 years now and respect him greatly for all he has taught me
