WHAT IS THE ORIGIN OF CLF?
Founded almost 40 years ago, Sydney School being the global headquarters of Chan Family Choy Lee Fut is fortunate and privileged to be passing on the teachings learned by our instructors directly from the Keeper of our Style, Grand Master Chen Yong Fa (陳永發) [Cantonese: Chan Wing Faat].
Choy Lee Fut [蔡李佛] (Mandarin: Cài Lǐ Fó) is a complete system of Kung Fu, Qigong and Lion Dance. The Choy Lee Fut lineage is deeply rooted within the Shaolin Temple. It was founded by Chan Heung whose training included teachers from both the Northern Shaolin and Southern Shaolin traditions.
Grand Master Chen, is the direct descendant of the founder of our style, Chan Heung (陳享) [Mandarin: Chén Xiǎng]. He is the fifth generation Jeung Mun Yan (Keeper of the Style). To date, Grand Master Chan Yong Fa continues to lead the Chan Family in Choy Lee Fut Kung Fu and Lohan Qigong internationally, and teaches its thousands of members worldwide.
In addition to the rich history and comprehensive system that encompasses a wide range of disciplines, Choy Lee Fut Sydney is not just a club. We are proud to say that we offer a welcoming and inclusive training environment as well as a social aspect. By joining our school you become part of the Chan Family.
