The original martial art, made famous by the Shaolin monks of China, still as effective today as it has ever been. We practise the Tiger – Crane style, favoured by the old masters of China for its effectiveness.
The Tiger – crane style begins by strengthening the entire body (internally as well as externally) and building a stable stance and posture. Fast, devastating striking ability is then developed. Discipline, respect and restraint are emphasised as this style of martial art is extremely effective.

We practise Chinese kick boxing (San Da) and are lucky enough to have the Olympic bronze medallist on our instructor team.
Kickboxing is a competitive form of martial art which develops a high degree of cardiovascular fitness. It emphasises kicks, punches, throws and takedowns. Training involves a lot of sparring.
We have a very successful team who regularly win British titles and who have, to date, won six world titles. We welcome those who aspire to become the next generation of champions.

We practise the sun- frost white crane art (shuang yang pei ho) and the Tong Ling chi kung system.
This is a gentle form of exercise ideal for those wishing to regain their basic health and achieve greater vitality and wellbeing. It involves developing the body’s intrinsic energy or ‘chi’ and opening the meridians – the energy channels through which chi flows.
The body is trained to become more relaxed and supple.
The mind is nourished with increased chi and oxygen.
Training involves basic meditation, the performance of 11 basic exercises and a 66 step routine. Relaxation, balance and breathing techniques are emphasised. Advanced students have the option of pursuing the martial applications of this art and deeper forms of meditation, energy manipulation and internal development.
We have students aged up to 80!

Content is based on Shaolin kung fu together with a little kick boxing and basic self defence. Lessons are fun but disciplined. Training is progressive starting with basic co-ordination, posture and balance then progressing gradually to more complex martial arts techniques.
We have one of the UK’s best junior competition and demonstration teams and have produced two junior world champions.
