What is Kung Fu…
“A mystery. It cultivates longevity and the essence of life. It fortifies composure and well being. Aligns thoughts, emotions, perceptions, body, and actions with a higher manifestation of ones self. It is an elixir for personal strength. It is peerless self defense. It is a path.”
“It resonates deeply. It enables absolutely. Wise people invest great time and effort into its practice. All should know it, but somehow it seems to choose. Will it be you?”

I have found this path to be an epic journey into a world of strength, vitality, and movement.
It has kept me inspired to research martial arts of all types for almost 50 years. I’ve broken them down and tried to understand what makes them successful.
You can boil down the core principles of the most effective ones into just a few words.
“Mind, Energy, Strength, and Functional Unity (of the body).
Volumes of treatises have been written about these over the millennia. No martial art is complete without a strong curriculum that addresses them in depth.
In our program, we have just that. We follow a traditional path of knowledge along with training and practices that have been given to us in trust – a syllabus created by iconic masters of martial arts – past and present. We enhance that knowledge with an understanding of sport science, and we test ourselves continuously through challenging combative interactions.
Ultimately, it’s all about attaining domain over your body, over your fears, over anything that would defeat you. About being a source of strength in the world you live in. That’s why we train. We train hard and have a lot of fun doing it. Want to join?
Fill your life with fitness, strength, agility and confidence.
Classes are currently held in Surrey and Vancouver.
