Jean Baptiste

Instructor - Brussels (Belgium)

When I commenced my training in Shaolin Nam Pai Chuan Kung Fu, I was so enthused by the system and my teacher Sandra Nebe that I made her a promise to always continue in the art that she has taught me.


From the first class in 2005 to the present day I still remain as passionate and committed to my training and now teaching. Through my training and understanding of my art I have gained more confidence, perseverance, emotions management and more respect for self and others.


It is in the cosmopolitan city of Brussels that I teach three times a week in collaboration with my fellow black belt Ralph Lloyd Davis. We are also preparing to begin a kid’s class.


Since the establishment of the Brussels club we have maintained a strong relationship with the Sussex Club under Sifu Matthew Gross.


On a purely personal level, it is in the Nam Pai Chuan system I met the mother of my children. It is certainly more than Kung Fu…

Frederic Serruys

Instructor - Liege, Brussels (Belgium)

Hi everyone,

I’m Frédéric, I live in Liège (Belgium) with my wife and our si… cats. For the MBTI initiates (if not, do have the test it’s pretty interesting) I’m an INTJ (alias ‘The Scientist’) described as follows (and it fits pretty well): independent, original, analytical, and determined. Have an exceptional ability to turn theories into solid action plans. Highly value knowledge, competence, and structure. Driven to derive meaning from their visions. Long-range thinkers. Have very high standards for their performance, and the performance of others.

I started practising martial arts at six and, as my motto suggests, I’ve had the curiosity to try various disciplines:

  • I studied Karate for two years with Jacques Debatty (7th dan).



  • I then practiced French Boxing for two years and stepped to gym for a few years before coming back to French Boxing where I later became an instructor of the club.



  • In parallel, I started practicing Pakua (or Bagua Zhang) under the lead of Sifu René (8th dan in Taichi, Bagua and Xhing I) and practiced two to three times a week for several years until he passed out in 2000.



  • When I moved to Brussels for my job, I continued French Boxing, along with Kick Boxing in the Golden Club (with Jean-Claude Van Damme’s teacher, 7th dan Karate and Kick Boxing) but after an injury, I had to stop for two years… and gained 30 kilos in the process (as well as a new wardrobe).



  • I could resume training in 2006 and discovered a Kung-Fu club by luck: the Nam Pai Chuan Center in Brussels supervised by Sifu Sandra Nebe. Thanks to her QiGong and intensive training, I managed to get back to my original weight.



  • I got my first black belt degree in 2009 and with the help of my Sifu, I was allowed to open my own center in Liège. I obtained my second degree in 2014.



On top of training up to seven times a week, I go as frequently as possible to Brussels and London to perfect my techniques with my Sigung, my Sifu, and other Seniors of the System. I dedicate most of my training time learning specific techniques of Eagle under the supervision of Sifu Leppard.

During different exchanges and trips in Asia, I was also initiated to other styles such as Birman Boxing, Ju-Jitsu, Krav-Maga, Aïkido, Wing-Chun, TaiChi… I’m currently following a certification course for Sport Coach, Yoga and martial Tai Chi.

Master Lai’s Message to Direct Black Belts
Dear Direct Black belts, There is simply no way for me to set the HQ BB afternoons to suit every single direct black belt of mine, and even less so for all the NPC black belts.  I had no intention of seeking to do this. The second Saturday afternoon of each month has been picked
