The Academy of Kung Fu is a professional, friendly and informative business. They just moved to their new location in Richmond's West End and the instructors and people are very knowledgeable and friendly. They teach traditional Ving Tsun Kung Fu from the Moy Yat lineage, it is honest, real Kung Fu. I have been taking classes there for 3 years now and I am physically and mentally so much stronger. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a good workout, self-defense and a friendly environment!

I've had two dealings with the Scuba Center that set it apart from the other dive shops in the area -- and both have been negative. Example: bought an $80 snorkel that bled water. Not sure why, don't care why. Been diving and snorkeling for 20 years. Had to buy a new one in Cozumel. Brought it back and, after grilling me, huffing and staring, and then pulling it apart, they handed it back to me and essentially said "tough luck, we don't see any problem." Second experience was equally unpleasant, and I'm a pretty easy-going guy. Be careful.

We see a lot of bands and bowling while waiting for your band made it so much more fun. The staff was great! Other reviews said there weren't enough employees but there were plenty that night. The owner let us bowl for an extra half hour free since no one else was waiting for a lane. The sound was even high quality which was something I worried about in a bowling alley. And I'm glad to see there are still some duckpin lanes open!

Went to Plaza Bowl on New Year's Eve and had a blast! I'd never duckpin bowled before and it was so much fun. There was live music and glow in the dark lighting while you bowl. Prices were reasonable and the staff was super friendly. This place is so cool. Can't wait to go back!

I've been going to this alley since I was a kid since its the only duckpin alley in Richmond. I'd been stationed in Safwan (Iraq) for the past 3 years and coming back to Richmond was an uncomfortable surprise. First off, there was a cover and all the charges for bowling had been greatly increased, which was fine because I had loved the place; I didn't mine paying for the service I'd been used to. There was a metal show that night, and me and my friends were having fun bowling-- until the guy working turned off our lane and when I asked him why, he eventually told me that he didn't want me or my kind there. I don't know if he hates military or if we'd done something to aggravate him, but he told me that "he was weeding out the people he didn't like." I felt his behavior was completely uncalled for. Despite loving this bowling alley as a kid, after being told that we weren't wanted there, I don't think I'll ever return. It's a shame, this used to be an amazing place.

I'm a serious bowler, and I've been to every center in the area, and this is one of the best. The staff is friendly. Compared to AMF, the ...

I dont know what the other reviewer means with that the owner is rude! Whenever I enter I am always greeted, and if the owner is up there she always says Hi! They dont just offer 3 year contracts. I got a 6month contract for $99 total. That's less than $20 a month! VLC is a great gym, that offers many different style of exercise classes, and is always adding to their exercise equipment.

The bowlingfan guy that had a bad experince caused that on his own. I always take friends there and we have a great time. You cant beat the beer prices and the bowling is inexspensive also.The bowlingfan guy expected the owner to hold lanes for him while other people were wanting them, that in turn causes the bowling alley to loose money. If you go bowling there you will have a great time. The owner is really nice and accomadating to everyone except those that get attitudes.Bowlingfan should realize that you cant hold up the whole bowling just for him. I think this is a great place to go and have tons of fun.

This place is great!!!!!!! Took a bunch of co-workers there and everyone had a blast. Could not have a better time anywhere. We are all going back about once a month for more fun.
