Our Traditional Choy Lai Fut (Choy Lee Fut) Kungfu Program

Our traditional program is offered to two different groups:

  1. Adults & Youths (13+)
  2. Kids (12 and under) & Family

All Learners

You will start with the basics of the Choy Lai Fut system, and then progress into various traditional fist forms and weaponry. Students will be given a very solid foundation that will enable them to progress into sparring and traditional Chinese lion dancing, if desired.

Classes begin with a quick warm up, horse stance training, and group exercises, followed by training in various forms. Weaponry is taught at the intermediate and advanced levels, where we cover the Chinese broad sword, double broad swords, staff, spear, double-edged sword, daggers, fan, tiger fork, and horse bench (we have other weapons as well, which are introduced only at very advanced levels).

If you are interested in improving your fitness level, whether it be in flexibility, stamina, or strength, this is the ideal program. Our exercises and horse stance training may appear to be quite grueling to newcomers, but we insist on developing a good traditional foundation for all of our students.

We have taught students of all shapes, sizes, and abilities in the past, and know that regardless of your background or physical stature, you should be able to progress satisfactorily in our program. You WILL develop a healthier mind and body through hard work and training. In fact, many students have come with no other training whatsoever, and these “ex-couch potatoes” have actually developed impressive physiques through traditional training!

Kids (12 and under) & Family

Get your whole family involved! One way to ease young children into a martial arts program is to have the parents training alongside them to give them added support. Parents are also usually fairly busy as it is, and may find it difficult to fit regular exercise into the daily routine. This family-oriented program is great for those who want to combine the need for physical exercise and quality time with the kids. Here classes are taught at a comfortable pace.

If parents are unable to take part and would like their children to participate alone in classes, this is also the best place to have them enrolled.
