Welcome to the Buddha’s Hand school of Chinese Martial Arts
The Buddha’s Hand school of Chinese Martial Arts is dedicated to the Promotion and Preservation of Traditional Shaolin Longfist Kung Fu. Shaolin Temple is acknowledged as the birthplace of modern martial arts and Longfist or Chang Chuan is regarded as the grandfather system. The style is known as “Longfist” due to the long flow of movements and is one of the most recognisable and practical styles of Shaolin Kung Fu. We are dedicated to preserving this style in its original form, keeping the tradition of training for Self Development as well as Self Defence.
Shaolin Kung Fu is one of the most widely varied martial arts incorporating many styles and systems. As well as the poetic and powerful hand forms there are many weapons including swords, spears, staffs and flexible weapons such as whip-chains and rope darts, so there is always something to challenge you at every level.
Traditional Kung Fu has its own special energy called “Chi”. This is an internal energy developed by focus and practice which makes the genuine Kung Fu player something more than just punches and kicks. We seek to develop this by including Chi Kung in every practice session.
Together we work to create harmony within the body, mind and spirit that strengthens all of these for every student.
