All Martial Arts of this world were created under the sun of Shaolin. Shaolin Kung Fu is as vast and complex as the universe.
Kung Fu offers physical exercise for health, discipline and blending of body, mind and spirit. With regular practice, the student achieves confidence, patience, endurance, self-control and self-awareness. The longer it is practiced, the greater the benefits.
Two styles of Kung Fu, Hung Gar Kuen and Tai Chi Chuan, are offered at the Seattle Kung Fu Club. Both styles are available to men, women and children of all ages. Students are taught individually.
The Shaolin International Federation was set up to meet the enormous demand from all parts of the world. It was founded in the early 90's by Du Baihong (aka Shi Yan Bo, Asian & American department) and Joost Warsanis (aka Shi Yan Yu, European department). The main goal of the Shaolin International Federation is spreading the Chinese Martial Arts and culture around the world.
The Seattle Kung Fu Club was started in 1963 by Sifu John S.S. Leong
Sifu John S.S. Leong, originally from Kwantung Province China, began his kung-fu training at the age of 12. Sifu Leong later went to Hong Kong and studied Hung Gar Kung-Fu under the late Master Wong Lee. In 1963, Sifu Leong began teaching in Seattle and established the Seattle Kung-Fu Club where he continues to pass on the tradition of Hung-Gar Kung-Fu.
The Seattle Kung Fu Club is part of the Ch'i Life Group founded by Mr. Leong's son, Robin Leong.
