We are not here to hurt one another, but we do train hard to prepare you for protecting yourself and your loved ones. We train for real life scenarios and will not teach anything that will not work on the streets. We train in the traditional ways of kung fu – with respect for those teaching us, heart, dedication, and the pursuit of mastery of Hung Gar.
