Siu Lum Gar Kung Fu and Kickboxing

Siu Lum Gar Kung Fu and Kickboxing

Siu Lum Gar Kung Fu is a family orientated organisation in which training methods are closely supervised and carried out by instructors highly qualified in the Martial Arts.

This style has been given the name Siu Lum Gar (Cantonese for Shaolin Family). It has allowed the choice of many different techniques, from different Shaolin styles, to ultimately benefit the students. People have different body types, and must be treated as individuals. The Cantonese spelling is in reference to a more southern based system with emphasis on strong, deep stances and powerful hand techniques.

Wu Jao Martial Arts Academy

Wu Jao Martial Arts Academy

Wushu (Chinese Martial Arts), became known far and wide in the world with the appearance of a spate of Kung Fu films during the 1960's and 1970's. Unlike Western Boxing or Japanese Karate, the Wushu of Shaolin is closely tied to its religious background of Buddhism. Practicing Wushu was used to help attain the awareness of Buddha-nature, for physical fitness and, on some occasions, for self-defence. Emphasis, however, was laid upon the understanding of life, the cultivation of morality and the attainment of a balanced state of being.
