Construction of Pa-Kua Huntington Beach began on May 1st of 2003. The Studio held its Grand Opening on April 1st, 2003 that was filled with students, friends and of course family! From the very beginning Master Elizabeth Filleti and Master Jason Landau had a goal of working with the community to help both young and old reach their personal goals. They founded the Pa-Kua Huntington Beach Studio with those goals as well as the desire to provide a positive family environment for everyone to be able to learn Pa-Kua. Pa-Kua Huntington Beach is now one of the highest and most reviewed studio in Orange County, California.
In the summer of 2008 Pa-Kua Huntington Beach moved to a new location at 4952 Warner Ave. Suite #101 in Huntington Beach, California directly across the street from the first studio. The new location offered two training mats, café, changing area and large office. This has kept our class sizes nice at 2 to 10 students per class since we can offer 2 different classes each hour.
Pa-Kua Huntington Beach participates in many community events each year such as: HB July 4th Parade, L.A. Chinese New Year Parade, Senior Saturday at H.B. Pier, Pa-Kua National Gathering and many more! We also have supported many charities/events such as: American Heart Association, MS Walk, Soles 4 Souls, Teens for Jeans, Rodgers Senior Center as well as many, many more.
Pa-Kua Huntington Beach is a committed member of the Pa-Kua International League. The International League of Pa-Kua was founded by Master Giordano (More info in Pa-Kua History).
