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…
Instructor - Liege, Brussels (Belgium)
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:
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.
Our style originates from the Shaolin temples in northern and southern China, and is taught at centres around the world.
We employ traditional training methods which have been used for centuries to teach Kung Fu to Shaolin monks, alongside more modern methods to help our students learn self-defence techniques and improve their fitness.
