Choy Lee Fut is one of the most versatile martial arts systems in the world. Established in 1836 by Chan Heung, the system draws on a Shaolin tradition spanning centuries and includes kung fu, qigong, lion dance and more.

The Sydney school has been an iconic part of Sydney’s Chinatown for over 25 years and we’ve made it our mission to promote this rich southern Chinese tradition in Australia. Our school is at 15 Goulburn St, Haymarket, Sydney
