Everything that you learn in Hung Kuen has an application for self-defence. There is much more to Hung Kuen than just self-defence; there is yoga, aerobic fitness, health, traditional medicine, competition, art and more. But the thing that makes Hung Kuen different from plain yoga or aerobics is that you learn to defend yourself.

Who is Hung Kuen For?

Kung Fu works for all shapes of body

The whole point of Kung Fu is that it is for everybody. It doesn’t matter whether you are tall or short, big or small, male or female. This is the art for you.

It is an ideal art for women

The foundations of Hung Kuen are balance, natural movement, and good body mechanics. This makes it a perfect art for women.

You do not need to be super fit to start Kung Fu

Kung fu is for ordinary people. You do not need to be particularly fit to take up Kung Fu. Practising the art will build and sustain your health and fitness. There is no upper age limit.

There is an age requirement

At West London Kung Fu we practice traditional training methods and applications. These are not suitable for children under the age of 14. We do not offer classes for children under 14.

The Tradition

The club is part of the Wei-t-o Kung Fu organisation. Wei-t-o was founded by Sifu Geof Hasbrouck to preserve the arts of the Ti Ku Sam Lineage. Sifu Hasbrouck died in 2018. He left the lineage to long time student Wayne Armstrong. Tragically Wayne died in 2018. Their students continue their work by passing on the understanding of the art and, more importantly, by sharing the joy of practising traditional Kung Fu.

The organisation has instructors specialising in different areas of Kung Fu from healing medicine to fighting in the ring. There are over 280 years of martial arts experience represented in this photo.
