Our style of Kung Fu is “Choy Lay Fut”, a southern Chinese style very famous for it’s effectiveness as a style of fighting. Choy Lay Fut is famous for its long range hand techniques which are known to help in defense against multiple opponents, for it’s speed and quick movements, deceptive hands and footwork, wide range of weapons and it’s ability to adapt to any situation.
Training is done on a step-by-step process; students follow a 10 levels system learning the style through a structured system. There are no belts or black belts in our school, we have kept things the traditional way, there are tests and a ranking system to help each student progress and be aware of their improvements.
