The Wu Shu taught in our Academy comes from the Hung Gar system. This unique art of Kung Fu develops the Internal and External energies simulataneously. This allows the mind and body to work together, making it satisfying to all people, regarless of their activeness level or age group. The most important qualities for a student of this art to have is patience, to have a good character, self-worth and to value ones self and ones life.

Hung Gar is a style of Kung Fu that combine advanced Internal and External training regimes, it makes this art a formidable Self Defence System to learn. This Art style is suitable for all age groups. Hung style is so powerful that our master was commissioned to teach the imperial army of China and had gone into battle to defend the country against army invaders and ruthless bandits in China. Hung Gar system was a closed door art for many years and still well guarded since it’s introduced to the public back in 1800. This Academy has continued to teach the complete art to worthy students that have a good Character & Moral standing since 1985

Hung Gar Style is based on the Five Animals and Five Elements systems. The unique power and balance of the Five Animals and Five Elements training, had made masters of this powerful art invincible in battle, in the days of spears and swords, since each of the five Animals and five Elements when combine, develop the mind and body towards good health, with great focus ability and will to assert oneself in life.

The Five Animals give the following benefits and ability:

Tiger: Leopard: Crane: Snake: Dragon:
The Five Elements give the following benefits and ability:

Air: Fire: Water: Wood: Earth:
Based on the Five Animals technique and the Five Elements fighting techniques, this style almost made fighters of this Style invincible in battle, as the imperial army had shown so in battle after they learn the Hung gar style of Kung Fu. Other army regiments that did not training in this art faired very badly in battles.

That is why the Hung Gar style was called: Hard As Iron – Soft As a thread system

HUNG GAR is a rare Traditional ShaoLin style of Kung Fu, that is worth doing, if you can find the right Sifu that can instruct you properly in this art.

Sifu Joseph is the Seventh generation down from Master Wong Fei Hung and his grand master id YC Wong. Learning Kung Fu, is different from knowing Kung Fu and being able to teach it.
Look for a Sifu that has a more direct lineage of this art. Need a Sifu / Instructor that has a lot of teaching experience, has the right Attitude towards the students safety and wellbeing, Has good Temperament, caring, positive attitude and a good Personality with Spiritual values, before you put your time, effort and money into it.

Kung Fu is an experience of a lifetime of: Positive Change, Self Control and Will, that will take you past any adventure you may be able to conjure up. Its a personal journey, a way of life.
