Kung Fu at Hung Kuen Shaolin Kung Fu Hung Kuen Shaolin Kung Fu

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.

Eagle Claw Kung Fu at Shum's Ying Jow Pai International Headquarters Shum's Ying Jow Pai International Headquarters 1 Photo

Class begins with a group warm-up and stretching, then moves to conditioning with kung fu basics: blocking, striking, kicking, jumping, turning, and stance work.

After warm-up, students learn forms (classical routines of Eagle Claw and northern kung fu techniques), self defense, and sparring. Weapons training plays a large role as well. Students get instruction in staff, short stick, sword, saber, three-section staff, spear, double-headed spear, kwan do (halberd), chain, hook swords, and daggers. Each weapon has a different purpose in self defense as well as in body conditioning.  Higher level students focus on fighting, advanced techniques, and gymnastics.

The Northern Eagle Claw system includes 25 fist forms, more than 25 weapon forms, over 25 partner (two-men or three-men) sets and the essence of the system, the 108 locking hand techniques.
