How you will learn
Nam Pai Chuan Shaolin Kung Fu is a traditional martial art and rooted in Chinese culture. Central to our training is a system of respect. We ask students to respect the information they are given, the system they are taught, their instructor and the wellbeing of their training partners.
Our training takes place in classes of mixed ability and we encourage students to constantly change training partners to learn from each other and experience training with different people – from beginner to black belt.
Rather than being something to be fearful of, this gives new students the chance to learn from our more experienced students, who are expected to demonstrate control over their techniques, assist new students, and help them to develop confidence and skill.
As a mark of respect, students are expected to bow to each and every training partner they work with, whoever they are. Traditionally, a student had to earn the right to learn kung fu, which was seen as privileged information.
