About White Crane Fighting Arts
We are a traditional martial arts club teaching three martial systems, all derived in one way or another from the South Eastern area of Fuzhou in China. Tiger Crane Combination Kung fu System (Hu Hè Shuang Xing Quan) and the White Crane Soft Boxing system (Shuang Yang Bai Hè Rou Ruan Quan) were believed to originated from the southern Quanzhou shaolin Temple. The Shaolin Dog Boxing Kungfu System (Shaolin DiShu Quan) was a nuns style from opposite the same Temple called (Bai Lian Si) White Lotus temple.
Our outlook on teaching, is to have a healthy body into late life and should the unfortunate event of having to defend ones self or a loved one, be effective as a real martial art. Traditional martial arts are not a sport and the ultimate aim is to never have to fight!
