Learn traditional kung fu and culture

OUR HISTORY

Chan Heung developed his own style of Kung Fu, combining the teachings of his uncle Chan Yuen Gong, Lee Yau San and the monk Choy Fook. Rather than selfishly calling his style Chan Gar, or Chan Family Kung Fu, he named it Choy Lee Fut. Choy in honour of the monk Choy Fook, Lee in honour of Lee Yau San and Fut, meaning Buddha, to commemorate the Buddhist origins of the art since all three of his mentors could trace their lineage back to the Shaolin Temple..

THE CHOY LEE FUT SYSTEM

The Chan Family Choy Lee Fut system is composed of seven areas of study. Kung Fu is the practice of external strength in the classic tradition of the martial arts. Complementing this is the Lohan Qigong system which develops inner strength of mind and body. In addition to these two disciplines, Choy Lee Fut incorporates traditional medical practices such as acupuncture and massage.

PHILOSOPHY

Ultimately the success of a student is not determined by his or her external abilities, (strength, speed, flexibility, etc.,) but rather by the student’s morality and character. This is known as Muduk. The Chinese have a saying “A student will spend years looking for a good teacher, and a teacher will test a student for years .”

KUM NA GRAPPLING

Kum Na in Cantonese or Chin Na in Mandarin is the art of trapping, joint locking or manipulating the joints. There are several degrees of Kum Na. These techniques invariably begin with bridging using the “Kiu Sou or forearm”, leading to trapping of the limbs. Techniques implemented can lead to either neutralising an opponent or in more extreme cases ending in dislocation or the tearing of tendons from the bone depending on the technique or force applied.
