Shaolin Kungfu

Grandmaster Wong and Dr Damian Kissey demonstrating some combat application

The Intensive Shaolin Kungfu Course was originally meant for kungfu instructors or those who have trained for a few years who wish to learn aspects of kungfu not normally taught in most kungfu schools, like developing internal force and using kungfu patterns for free sparring.

But over the years as our school expands and our students are now able to learn internal force and combat application from our regional instructors, the content of the course has been increased remarkably both in scope and depth. Now the course provides an excellent opportunit8es for our students to learn skills ranging from basic to masters' levels in a very short time so that they can continue to practice them in their regular classes with their instructors.

The course held in Sabah from 20th to 26th June 2009 reflects this development. The videos recorded at this course shown here cover the following important aspects:

Those who may not have the opportunity to learn from regional Shaolin Wahnam instructors but wish to attend the course, can benefit much by learning the stances from the videos as preparation. Those who are more advanced should familiarize themselves with the 16 combat sequences.
