Genevieve Heineman is a certified instructor with Bamboo Kung Fu and has been studying Choy Li Fut Kung Fu with Sifu Kin Sze for the past two years. Prior to that she was a professional dancer with a background in ballet, modern, jazz, and hip hop. She also studied Wu Mei Kung Fu in New York city for a number of years. Wu Mei Kung Fu is the predecessor to Wing Chun kung fu style which Bruce Lee has made famous. This led to her interest in Buddhism and she later took her Bodhisattva vows with Fo Guan Shan (佛光山) temple in California.

It is her own personal experience that practicing Kung Fu has made her healthier, stronger, and more self confident.

Genevieve is passionate in helping people to better themselves through martial arts and fitness training.

She is particularly concerned with empowering women, transgender and non-binary people to feel safe and secure within their own bodies and to protect themselves as they navigate through their daily lives.
