The Academy: Chi Wai Kung Fu

Chi Wai Kung Fu is a modern progressive and adaptable Martial Art with its foundation in traditional styles. Chi Wai Kung Fu translates to ‘Self Defence Combative Skill’ which accurately conveys what this system is about.

Self Defence is the primary objective of this system as with many other Martial Arts but also, Chi Wai helps promote more confidence in the students by teaching life skills through the medium of the martial arts. Some of the life skills that a student of Chi Wai Kung Fu will gain through their training are:

  • Self Confidence
  • Respect
  • Discipline
  • Honesty
  • Helpfulness
  • A Black Belt Attitude

A Black Belt Attitude is about setting yourself a goal and having the tenacity or will to achieve that goal. The phrase ‘quitters never win, winners never quit’ sums up the Black Belt Attitude nicely. This attitude is formed by the student building up the aforementioned life skills through the Martial Art of Chi Wai Kung Fu and their time at the academy.

In its simplest terms Self-defence is the act of defending one self from being a victim of violence. Self-defence can be taught in many different forms, but generally it is a range of defence skills that are both physical and non-physical.

  • Use your common sense
