CHOY LI FUT KUNG FU
A traditional Martial Art System that has origins in both the Southern and Northern Shaolin Temples. It combines the agile footwork of Northern Shaolin Kung Fu with the intricate Southern Shaolin Hand Techniques. This blending of styles led to the description of Choy Li Fut as being “Bok Tui, Nam Kuen” – the style of “Northern Kicks, Southern Fists” Choy Li Fut is one of the most complete and effective styles for health and self-defense. Our style emphasizes relaxed, internal power rather than stiff, muscular force. This is not only more effective, giving the smaller person an advantage, but is also better for the practitioner’s health. Choy Li Fut forms are circular, powerful, and as beautiful to watch as they are effective in combat. They often contain over 150 individual movements, each one having a practical application in self-defense. Done at full speed, forms provide an excellent cardiovascular workout. Unlike many other martial arts, Choy Li Fut contains a wide variety of techniques, including long and short range punches, devastating kicks, deadly sweeps and takedowns, lethal pressure point attacks, joint locks, and grappling. Truly a well-rounded Kung Fu system. It is the study of a lifetime.
