Core Concepts

Kung Fu's Core Concepts

The Science of Martial Arts

Our Kung Fu style is a logical and scientific martial art based on principles of physics and biomechanics. Using these principles, you can learn to generate and overcome significant force without relying on physical strength.

Centreline Theory

One of Kung Fu’s core concepts is its ‘centreline theory’. The centreline is a straight line from the centre of your body to the centre of your opponent’s body. By facing your opponent in your stance and guard, you can deliver powerful centreline strikes that will reach their target faster than those that deviate from the centre, such as haymakers, hooks and turning kicks. These strikes will also be stronger, being supported by your entire centre of mass.

Simultaneous Attack and Defence

Centreline theory also allows you to attack and defend with up to three limbs at once – for example, deflecting an incoming punch while counter-punching and kicking in the same movement. This makes you faster and more efficient than someone who blocks and strikes in two separate movements.

Stance and Guard

A common misconception of the stance and guard is that it requires you to be front-on to your opponent at all times. The centreline is a versatile concept that adapts to and tracks an opponent’s position. It can, therefore, be applied when fighting from any stance – whether front-on or side-on.

Five Principles

Kung Fu Principles

Simplicity – Kung Fu is easy to learn and based on natural body movements.

Directness – Strikes should take the shortest distance to their target.

Practicality – Techniques must be adaptable to all fighting scenarios.

Economy of Movement – Conserve your energy and use the fewest and most direct movements to achieve the most efficient outcome.

Minimum Use of Brute Strength – Use relaxation and deflection over strength and hard blocking.

Great place to train to learn an authentic style of Chinese Kung Fu, with some impressive roots to famous masters of the style. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking at learning self defence. It's practical and it's loads of fun. Everyone is very respectful of each other, the style, and teachers, which is one of things I admire most.

I am an American who was in Sydney for three months on holiday. I took classes daily. My overall experience was great. The instructors regularly check in with you to see how your training is going. By and large, everyone at this Kung Fu academy is friendly, helpful and patient. It was a lot of fun. I had a great time training there.

The class gave me a super-sweaty workout that combined cardio and strength training, plus stretching. I learnt how to punch and kick properly, and how to hurt someone if they grab my wrist. Hi-yaaa!

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

Keen to start training in Sydney?

Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about Kung Fu.

‘Kung Fu’ is an umbrella term for the wide range of martial arts and fighting styles that have emerged from Greater China since the Xia Dynasty over 4,000 years ago. Some styles of Kung Fu can be grouped into certain categories, such as application (‘internal’ or ‘external’) or geographic origin (‘Northern’ or ‘Southern’). However, as China is an enormous land mass, there can be vast differences between Kung Fu styles from different regions.

Styles of Kung Fu like Wing Chun and Shaolin Kung Fu emphasise close-range combat and efficient techniques that are practical for realistic self-defence. These styles are arguably more effective than other styles of Kung Fu that prioritise performance or ritual over practical application. More than anything, how instructors teach their Kung Fu style and whether their students are encouraged to pressure-test their techniques through sparring will determine how effective it is for self-defence.

The time it takes to learn a Kung Fu style to a high standard mainly depends on its complexity and physical demands. Some Kung Fu styles require memorising dozens of forms and the ability to perform feats of physical athleticism akin to that of a gymnast. Other styles, like Wing Chun, are based on natural body movements and are much quicker and easier to learn. Like any great skill, the true mastery of any Kung Fu style can take a lifetime.

No prior experience is necessary to learn Kung Fu. In fact, sometimes a lack of experience can be an advantage when learning Kung Fu for the first time, as you can approach the training without any preconceived ideas or ingrained habits. Bruce Lee once said, “If you want to taste my tea, you must first empty your cup.” Ultimately, all that is required to learn Kung Fu is an open mind and a willingness to learn.

While it may be possible to learn how to imitate the basic movements of Kung Fu through online sources, your understanding and ability will be superficial at best. As Kung Fu training ultimately seeks to prepare you for a hands-on combat situation, you cannot possibly learn it to a high standard without hands-on correction from a qualified instructor and the experience of practising your movements against a good sparring partner.
