Fu Jow Pai is a southern Chinese kung fu style featuing hard & soft blocks, snapping kicks, and various hand strikes including the 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.
The class routine involves traditional & innovative exercises for strength, flexibility, coordination & body conditioning. "Empty hand" forms as well as weapons (staff, spear, three-sectional staff, single & double hand swords) are taught, followed by application of kung fu: techniques -- blocks, strikes, kicks, take-downs, breaks, etc. -- and strategies for self-defense, sparring, fighting and demonstrations.
The class is led by sifu Eric Brugnoni, with help from sihing Greg Dinger & Steve Saguid. All trained under sifu Wo Look. This class has been in existence since 1982.
