You can learn the rare Choy Li Fut Kung Fu in Norwich from a world class instructor, Master Niel Willcott. What is Choy Li fut Kung Fu?

Bruce Lee later in his life studied Choy Li Fut Kung Fu, when asked to describe the style he said.

“Choy Li Fut is the most effective system that I’ve seen for fighting more than one person. It is one of the most difficult styles to attack and defend against.”

Choy Li Fut (CLF) Kung Fu has many forms (Patterns of movements, like a Karate Kata). There are over 150 individual forms each teaches a uniquely different way to fight. The average form contains 100+ moves and each move has a group of practical applications. We have forms for all traditional weapons, forms for animal styles and much more. Below you can see an example of a Choy Li Fut Kung Fu form.
