Choy Lee Fut Martial Arts, Sydney Australia

Choy Lee Fut is one of the most widely practised kung fu styles within Asia today. It is well known for it's speed and power, it's smooth circular body movements and its flexible footwork. It combines the powerful hand techniques characteristic of the southern kung fu styles with the versatile kicks of the northern system. It emphasises the intelligent use of strength and the combination of the external force with the internal will.


Chan Heung called it Choy Lee Fut to commemorate his teachers and the Buddhist origin of the art (fut means Buddha in Cantonese)


Choy Lee Fut has a tradition deeply rooted within the martial arts of the Shaolin Temple. Chan Heung, our founder, spent over 20 years learning his art from his three mentors: Chan Yuen Wu, Lee Yau Shan and the monk Choy Fook, before combining his knowledge into one effective and comprehensive system. Chan, Heung called it Choy Lee Fut to commemorate his teachers and the Buddhist origin of the art (fut means Buddha in Cantonese).

The Choy Lee Fut system has over 190 forms classified into 3 levels of learning. These forms include the following:

  • traditional fist and weaponry forms, either in solo or multiple person sparring sets,
  • Shaolin wooden dummy forms for hand techniques and weaponry,
  • sand bag techniques and forms,
  • qigong (internal) forms and traditional Chinese medical theories; and
  • lion dance sets.

The external sets are harder and faster, designed to condition and to benefit muscle and bone and to increase stamina. The internal sets are slower, flowing and more relaxed. They promote internal organ harmony, correct breathing and a healthier stronger body.
