O ur traditional
systems contain forms - postures linked together with transitions that are the "text
books" of martial arts and the means of preserving and passing knowledge from one
generation to another. Our core curriculum focuses on learning forms, and we offer
numerous traditional sets for training. We provide sequential instruction to build
knowledge gradually, and to improve timing and coordination of extremities. Forms
are taught not only through imitation, trying to gain a certain look, but through
the awareness of body alignment and postures gained through an understanding of
the execution in its practical sense. We strive for authenticity in our training,
retaining the techniques and philosophy of the ancient Chinese traditions. Through
our research and numerous years of teaching experience, we have developed a systematized
method of training to allow the best opportunity for our students to achieve.
O ur Fu Hok
Tai He Morn training method focuses on the use of natural strength generated by
whole body integration. Natural means using the least amount of strength and finding
the right position in which the body is best designed to function. This makes use
of the innate physical attributes that we each possess and eliminates injuries that
can result from rigid execution. We find the naturalness in our positions generated
by all major joints and ligaments; coordinated with timing. This training technique
improves circulation, develops efficiency of movement, and generates superior power
and energy. Ultimately, our training enhances awareness of body mechanics, promotes
inner peace, and creates a path for higher thinking. Benefits carry over into other
aspects of daily activities ranging from better performance in sports and other
disciplines, enhanced ability for problem-solving, or simply keeping a central equilibrium
in our stride.
W e believe
that the key to well being is when both body and mind are stimulated by new awareness.
We provide clear and open instruction to facilitate progress. Our method involves
both physical movement in synchronization with mental focus. We consider this active
meditation, a state that is achieved naturally through our training. Learning is
as much an art as the discipline itself. Through gradual accumulation of knowledge
from a qualified source, and a goal of self-cultivation, one is able to achieve.
With proper guidance, advanced skill is attainable through the process of refinement,
a discovery of one's limitations and overcoming them through practice. Mastery comes
when both the body and mind learn the martial arts principles. We believe that anyone
can learn through our method, and we provide a supportive environment to ensure
growth. Individuals progress at their own pace, and children are not advanced with
their own age group, but rather their own comfort and skill level.
Fu Hok Tai
He Morn was founded by Kwong Tit-Fu from Guangzhou, Guangdong province of China.
The words are a composite for three systems mastered by the late founder - Shaolin
Hung Gar Fu Hok, Wu Tai Chi and Mu Dong Yat Hei Ngm Hahng Morn. The systems are
left intact, maintaining traditional form sequences, and each system is taught in
a separate program. We focus on the universal principles and concepts found in the
higher levels of each traditional system. The systematic approach of the ancient
training methods has been preserved and integrated with modern concepts, allowing
practitioners to learn and progress. Our training method abides by sound martial
arts theory that has been tested through time to produce greater enhancements in
execution and depth of understanding.
