Fujian White Crane Kung Fu
Our style is the fundamental traditional type of Chinese Kung Fu. Born out of a woman's need to defend herself and fight injustice, developed and refined in the turbulent battlefields of Chinese history, and used today to perpetuate a cultural heritage. The style taught in our classes is Tiger Crane Combination Kung Fu, an acknowledged part of the White Crane System of Kung Fu. It is a hard, external style. Stances are low and powerful, rooted to provide stability, but providing explosive spring power when moving. The torso is trained to generate power for the arms and absorb the lower body's motion to maintain stability. The arms and shoulders are fast and free-moving, switching between defence and attack as needed. The hand and wrist movements are particularly elegant and expressive, characteristic of all White Crane traditional styles.
