What's Happening

Choy Lee Fut Kung Fu is founded in 1836 by Chan Heung, who named this style to honour the Buddhist monk Choy Fook who taught him Choy Gar, Li Yau-San who taught him Li Gar, and his uncle Chan Yuen-Wu, who taught him Fut Gar. It was developed to honour both the Buddha and the Shaolin origins in martial arts.

The system combines the powerful arm and hand techniques from the Southern Shaolin animal forms, merged with the extended, circular movements, and agile footwork from the Northern styles.

It is considered an external style–combining many soft and hard techniques, as well as including a wide range of long and short weapons. Choy Lee Fut is also an effective self-defense system, useful for defense against multiple attackers. It contains a wide variety of techniques, including long and short range punches, kicks, sweeps and take downs, pressure point attacks, joint locks, and grappling. It is a well-rounded style of kung fu.
