About our styles, as written by our Kung Fu Instructors:
Chi’ang Shou Fa, a not so well known form of Kung fu, is an assassination style, focusing on speed strength and precision. Focusing attacks on pressure points and weak points of the body may seem like a “dirty tactic” but can be very effective in ending a fight quickly with only a small burst of energy needed. This style trains fighting at multiple different distances, to gain an advantage over fighters that specialise in certain ranges. A sub-style of this is Ganga Daa, specifically a tiger style of Kung Fu which aims to overwhelm the opponent by using fast attacks and forcing them into close combat, making it pair well with Wing Chun.
Wing Chun is a traditional close combat self defence style of kung Fu, and is the only style to be developed primarily by women. Due to its origin, it's optimised for people with a smaller stature, but is still effective for people of all shapes and sizes. Our instructors have studied Ip Ching style wing chun and have a direct lineage to Ip Man, Ip Man being the most famous grand master of the style and teacher to Bruce Lee.
