We practice Shaolin Kung Fu, Sung Chuan (relaxed fist). It is a broad style incorporating the fundamental elements of Chinese martial arts. Students of Sung Chuan learn numerous techniques that provide them with the skills to defend themselves using strikes, locks, takedowns and common sense.
Traditional forms (sequences of movements) including animal forms like tiger, monkey and crane are taught and practiced. Weapons such as the staff, broad sword and spear are also taught. Students will practice the ancient breathing methods known as Chi Kung (energy work). Chi Kung helps the practioner to cultivate his or her internal energy and develop concentration.
Sung Chuan students are encouraged to use relaxation to maximise their power and speed. The Internals in the traditional forms and techniques of the system manifest as the student learns to soften and let go of unnecessary physical tension.
Shaolin Sung Chuan owes its origins partly to the teachings of Shaolin Monk Seh Koh San, who became the Abbot of the Shaolin Siong Lim Temple in Singapore. Cho Si Seh Koh San taught a style known as Fat Gar Kuen, (Buddhist Fist). The students taught by Cho Si Seh Koh San belong to the second chamber 49th generation of Shaolin.
Sung Chuan Kung Fu has embraced the internal aspects of Kung Fu, with Tai Chi Chuan playing an integral role in skill development. We are a member of the British Council for Chinese Martial Arts BCCMA.
Through the BCCMA we provide comprehensive insurance for all of our students and instructors.
