Hung Kuen is a graceful and powerful style of Kung Fu based on five animals: Dragon, Tiger, Leopard, Crane, and Snake.

Classes are two hours long, and are designed to provide a comprehensive approach to all aspects of Hung Kuen.

An example of a standard class structure:

  1. Warm up;

  2. Traditional stances and hand/leg techniques;

  3. Shaolin forms;

  4. Partnered applications of hand/leg techniques;

  5. Padwork;

  6. Sparring;

  7. Self-defense.

For senior students, instruction in traditional Shaolin weapons (monkey staff, broadsword, halberd, spear, knives, etc.) becomes a key portion of the curriculum as well.

Master Karl Pettersen is an accredited Master of Hung Kuen Kung Fu, 6th Degree Black Belt, and the Head Black Belt Instructor for the club. Karl studied Hung Kuen under the auspices of Hung Kuen Shaolin Kung Fu UK through Master Ang and his team of instructors, and over time became a qualified instructor.
