This class offers training in “Fu Jow Pai” Kung Fu, a southern Chinese style featuring hard & soft blocking, snap kicks, and various hand strikes including Tiger Claw. Rigorous training is both challenging and rewarding. The style’s intricate “forms” combine athletic grace with powerful delivery. One-on-one application of techniques, closely supervised, equips the student with effective skills. In this class you will learn empty hand & traditional weapons forms, traditional & new exercises for strength, flexibility, coordination, body conditioning and kung fu techniques (blocks, strikes, kicks, take-downs,breaks) for self-defense sparring, fighting and demonstration.
Main sifu Eric Brugnoni trained in several martial art styles before devoting himself to Fu Jow Pai, which he learned from sifu Wo Look. He received his Instructors belt in 1982, and has been teaching this kung fu class ever since. He is assisted in running the class by senior students Greg Dinger and Steve Saguid (si-hing).
