Choy Lee Fut Sydney Kids Program

Choy Lee Fut Kung Fu is not just a martial art in the Shaolin tradition, it is a complete training system ideal for developing not only the health aspects but discipline, concentration and balance.

We apply the training principles of our founder Chan Heung to the needs of modern kids so they can reach their full potential in a fun and controlled environment.

We are also a registered provider in the NSW Government’s Active Kids program, click here to learn more

The beginners program is designed to expose beginner children and younger students to a wide range of movements in Choy Lee Fut. They will train to move in a relaxed and continuous manner without focusing as much on the details of each form. To give them an overview of the system, they’ll learn key sections of the basic forms outlined below.

The intermediate program is designed for children to practice the finer points. They will train the same forms but learn them all the way through, as well as train the details, as well as the different types of power that each form generates.

Students are accepted into the intermediate class based on age and/or grading.
