Dating back over 2,000 years to China’s famed Shaolin Temple, kung-fu is one of the oldest and most effective forms of self-defense. Shaolin Monks practiced kung-fu not only as a means of self-protection, but also as a form of health improvement. Since those early days, kung-fu has spread all over the world with hundreds of different styles and millions of practitioners.
A System of Unparalleled Versatility
White Dragon teaches one of the world’s most widely practiced forms of kung-fu called Choy Li Fut. Combining the sophisticated hand techniques of Southern styles of kung-fu with the quick, agile footwork and kicks found in Northern styles, Choy Li Fut is one of the world’s most complete and well-balanced systems of martial arts. Additionally, Choy Li Fut incorporates all the aspects of fighting from the Shaolin Temple including throwing, jointlocking, pressure-point techniques, ground fighting and weapons training.
In addition, Choy Li Fut is well known for its holistic approach to health improvement. So, while you’re learning one of the world’s most potent forms of self-defense, you’ll simultaneously be building strength, flexibility, endurance, and heart health.
