Chiu Lau Kung Fu College specializes in Wing Chun and Shaolin Kung Fu.

Wing Chun is used to develop self-defence skills while the Shaolin training provides students with a strong fitness foundation. This program provides our students with balanced training to cultivate internal and external elements. We do not view these as two separate styles of Kung Fu but rather a unified approach with one objective – confidence.

Our classes include students of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels. This promotes a positive learning environment in which the progress of junior students is encouraged by the senior students leading by example. All students focus on the same curriculum; however, expectations will vary depending on the level of the student. This approach to the class structure provides the maximum benefit for all students.

Our typical Kung Fu workout consists of a warm-up routine involving running, jumping, kicking, stretching, and drilling basic techniques. We may focus on learning a new Kung Fu form, Iron Shirt training, Wing Chun techniques, partner drills, sticky hands, sparring, footwork, wooden dummy, or weapons. It all depends on what the current focus is for students. Classes finish with a warm-down period which focus on Chi Gung and meditation.

Following the class structure and instructions will provide students with the maximum benefits from training Kung Fu.

Why we love what we do

Kung Fu is action meditation. It trains the mind and body in unison, teaches how to think quickly and clearly, and to calmly react and be decisive with our actions. Kung Fu will improve overall focus, discipline, and mental clarity.

Martial arts training teaches the body to react automatically in response to confrontation. This enhances overall awareness of self, others, and surroundings in order to quickly assess and react as necessary to conflict.

Kung Fu also provides many health benefits. The forms and exercises were designed centuries ago by our Kung Fu ancestors to augment the free flow of Chi energy within the body. This improves health, circulation, vitality, and overall well-being. Kung Fu is often described as the fountain of youth.

Wing Chun concepts are easily translated outside of self-defence applications into daily life. It teaches us how to remain balanced and relaxed throughout life, to accept what comes and respond in the most efficient way. The skills taught at Chiu Lau Kung Fu College demonstrate a way to overcome problems and strengthen ourselves inside and out.

Kung Fu is a way of life.


Our Black Belt students and instructors provide valuable peer support within the class environment to help all students excel in their Kung Fu training and personal development. We learn by watching, we learn by doing, and we lead by example.

With knowledge comes responsibility. As students advance towards their black belt, they will be called upon to lead group drills and exercises under the guidance of our Sifus. This is an opportunity for students to gain confidence and develop their leadership skills in a positive, motivating environment.

Chiu Lau Kung Fu College trains our students to be successful inside and outside of the school.
