Kung Fu class

Post by johnops » Fri, 27 Oct 2006 3:47 pm

After studying karate in Japan for 8 years, I'd like to study Kung Fu here in Singapaore. Can anyone suggest a good teacher -- not one that teaches to make money -- but one who lives the life they teach?

Kung Fu Class

Thanks for the information. A couple of question if you don't mind. Is this class the teacher's main source of income or does he have another job? Also, it says classes are Tues/Thurs -- do you know the time it starts? Thanks again for you help. johnops

Feel free to ask away :)

its not their main income, its something they do for the interest of the art, they train the tiger crane kung fu, also they do lion dance training aswell.

they tend to start around 8pm, the class tends to last for 3 or so hours. They're really laid back, it's about developing your chi energy and all, worth giving them a call to give you a better idea. My partner trains there you see so I don't know the full ins and outs of the art. I've met them and watched their classes. Don't be shy to call them.

I'm more into my thaiboxing, that's what i'm trying to locate at the moment in singapore.

Try looking in the "lion dance" associations in Geylang. The kung fu schools are mainly on the odd lorongs, in the teens and 20's. But be careful to go with "no attitude" so as not to get your butt kicked!!! Old traditional styes of kung fu in Singapore include Ching Woo, Choi Lai Fut, white crane (said "bai her"), and Chow Gar. There are also plenty of offshoots from the temple in Toa Payoh, including the second door of shaolin, monkey, and various other "hard" Southern styles.

Check out the parks at daybreak, there is a lot of Chen Man Ching tai chi, although Chen style is probably the most common now. Yang and Wu style can also be found.

I train eagle, northern mantis, bagua, shaolin, and CLF, average 16-24 hrs training per week. Sometimes it is better to pay for classes unless you don't mind doing lots of odd jobs!!
quid pro quo
