History and Lineage

The system of Choy Lee Fut was founded by Chen Heung. He was fortunate enough to have trained with three masters who each taught him different aspects of the rich tradition of the Shaolin Temple.

The Sydney school traces its lineage back to Chen Heung and the Shaolin temple through Grand Master Chen Yong Fa – the 5th generation Jeung Mun (keeper of the style) of Chen Family Choy Lee Fut, who has been teaching in Sydney for over 25 years.
