Traditional Chinese medical knowledge is an important aspect of Choy Lee Fut taught to our founder Chan Heung by Choy Fook. Tit Da (the treatment of muscular and skeletal injuries) provides the practitioner with an understanding of their own body as well as knowledge of pressure points for striking.
The understanding of one's muscles, tendons and ligaments as well as one's meridians allow us to better control our bodies and the flow of qi within it. This understanding can also be used to heal injuries sustained during training or combat.
Meridian and acupuncture points can also be used for devastating pressure point strikes, which form part of the higher level of Choy Lee Fut training.
Our Sifu - Chen, Yong Fa is also a qualified practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine, graduating from the Kwangtung College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and also inheriting knowledge from his ancestors. He currently practices inside the Sydney school whilst also teaching kung fu, qigong, and traditional Chinese medicine.
