Philosophy

The Hung Fut System has had eight generations of grandmasters who oversee the direction and purity of this unique style of Kung Fu. Our teacher, Sifu Tai Yim, is the Eighth Generation Grandmaster of the Hung Fut System. By keeping our system pure and true to our founder's vision, we are keeping alive a treasure of the Shaolin Temple. It is our belief that only through hard work and diligent daily training will we keep ourselves and our style up to the true standard of traditional Shaolin Martial Arts. It is not only the system, but primarily the individual who makes the system great.
