Fu (功夫) is an ancient and diverse martial art. Numerous are the stories that have been written and narrated on its origins
and styles. Many people state that Kung Fu originated in northern China; others affirm that it was in southern China where it developed. Some other people strongly argue that Kung Fu acquired its form and
philosophic principles from the teachings of a monk named Bodhidarma and that only the Shaolin monks are the heirs and guards
and practitioners of the purest style of Kung Fu. However, nobody can really define where, how, or when this martial art became
what to date everybody denominates Kung Fu and its variants or styles, among which are, for example, Choy Li Fut Kung Fu,
Wing Chung, Tiger Style Kung Fu, Monkey Style, Northern Mantis Style, Southern Mantis Style, Wu Shu, etc.
At the “Fire Dragon, Kung Fu School” (火龙功夫学校) we learn a style of Kung Fu that has been practiced and taught for various generations of
masters (“Warrior Style” / 战士样式) who have only transmitted
their martial art from father to son, and from son to grandson, etc. And in some special occasions it has been taught to disciples
who have been carefully chosen. Accordingly, it has never been commercialized, nor has it been subject to a tariff for teachings
and learning, nor a central headquarter exists from which all subsidiaries receive instructions and all instructors must show
their respect on a regular basis through skill examinations and change of colorful belts or uniforms, because this is a family
business, a sole shareholder’s equity, a link of today’s men with their beloved ancestors. Then it is not a product
that is available for sale with the promise of “full satisfaction or your money back”.
OUR NEW LOCATION is Calgary, Alberta, Canada, since
2009. Thank you and best of luck.
