Choy Lee Fut is one of the most versatile martial arts systems in the world.

It includes:

  • Kung Fu – self defence & a great workout from complete beginners to advanced level with weapons and dummies
  • Qigong – health & vitality through relaxed movement from complete beginners to advanced exercises and meditation

We’ve been teaching Choy Lee Fut in Sydney’s Chinatown for over 25 years. The best way to learn about the system is to come try or watch a free beginner-friendly class. To get your voucher for a free Kung Fu class and a free Qigong class, just enter your email below:

On the Wing Sing Tong, masters and disciples front, there will be two seminars in Europe, one in Barcelona and one in Wieliczka which will give a chance for some instructors in the Sydney school to train with their European brothers & sisters.

We will also be holding some great events in Australia, both for instructors and for general students (having already held a Qigong pole seminar) so stay tuned for more!
