Gear up to reduce training down time.

It is said that there are two things you train in martial arts: the 'seen', and the 'unseen'.

Sometimes it is described as external and internal energy, or strengh/power and chi. But let's keep it simple, because it is challenging to train that which you cannot see. The simple answer is that self-defense takes hard work over time.

At Hung Tao Choy Mei we believe there is no easy way to learn self-defense. There are no short-cuts to defending yourself. It takes time to become stronger, to learn to take a hit and not go down, to move fast and efficiently enough to get away, or to control an aggresive move. It takes training to move simply when adrenaline courses through your veins, making you physically shake, or to persevere when you're physically and mentally exhausted. It is repetitive training that helps you tactically make a bad situation into a close call, or to avoid what could be dangerous when stress is clouding your mind. 

So we gear up and we spar. We learn how to be stronger but with control. We learn how to remain calm to be faster and smarter. We learn how to breath to build confidence, endurance, poise. And that takes time.

For the average person it means coming to class 3-times a week;  reviewing forms and meditation at home or elsewhere. Several months of training builds up the big muscles in the legs for strength and endurance. Half a year changes your muscle-memory so that your reaction time shortens. You learn to be relaxed and confident under stress. In a year the average person learns how to knit together the seen and the unseen to defend against multiple attackers.

In our school, you will go on a personal journey of training both of what you can see and that which you cannot.

 

 

Self-defense begins with strong legs

Hung Tao Choy Mei teaches adults fitness, focus, and self-defense. Kung Fu training requires no equipment, just hard work and a focused mind.  
     We teach Jow Ga Kung Fu to adults of all ages, for short or long stretches of time. We understand that adults have demanding work schedules, and go out of town, have looming deadlines, or are passing through on assignment. We have classes seven days a week, but you practice when you can. Our rates are low and we have no contract. We ask only that when you come you work hard. At Hung Tao Choy Mei Leadership we put the community's welfare first. 
     We invite you to meet new people, take a free class, see if it's for you. Kung Fu will make you stronger, smarter, faster, slimmer and calmer and all you need to do is bring yourself.

The Hung Tao Choy Mei Kung Fu Leadership Institute offers a comprehensive course of traditional martial arts training. Private and group classes are conducted seven days a week. Beginning classes stress body conditioning, basic footwork, basic foot and empty hand techniques, breathing exercises, sticky hand exercises, one-step sparring, tumbling and empty hand forms.
Intermediate and advanced classes concentrate on advanced empty hand and weapons forms, two-man fighting sets, and free sparring. Students are never guaranteed they will be able to learn Kung Fu in "10 easy lessons". On the contrary, they realize after just a few lessons that complete mastery of the art is often a lifetime task, involving dedication and perseverance. Completion of the course involves several years of commitment. Perfecting the techniques will take much longer. The average student should be able to take care of himself within a years' training, but those wishing to learn more advanced techniques must study much longer.
The Hung Tao Choy Mei course includes the following:
• History & Philosophy of Kung Fu 
• Internal and External physical exercises (preparation for fighting techniques}
• Empty hand techniques. The student learns punching, kicking, hand techniques, forms, stepping, breathing methods, body movements and "Iron Palm" training.
• Weaponry involving the use of sword, staff, spear, daggers, Kwan, etc.
Hung Tao Choy Mei translates as Hung head, Choy tail or rather, head of Hung Gar Kung Fu, tail of Choy Gar Kung Fu. It is a Cantonese expression that helps describe Jow Family Style Kung Fu. It is also is the name of our nonprofit and school. 
Although our system does not have a colored belt ranking system, students must demonstrate their proficiency through formal testing conducted by SiFu Muhammad.

Fitness, Focus, Self-Defense

Turn and kick behind: self-defense should work against mutiple attackers.
