In a self defence situation at home or in the street, a broom stick or umbrella easily duplicates the techniques of the applications of the cudgel such as twirling, whipping and poking.

This school holiday program has been specifically designed so that regardless of whether you’re a student of Golden Lion Academy, or someone who has never attended a martial art class before, you’ll come away with a new and consolidated skill set

Five Element Techniques of Kung Fu - 25th March 2017

In the Southern Shaolin school of Kung Fu, the elements correspond to five particular types of techniques, each emphasising the characteristic of that element.

The five elements techniques are represented by:

Wood – a simultaneous block and attack sequence that uses a battering type of action

Fire –    straight line attacks like a flight of arrows

Earth – devastating blows raining down like an avalanche from a mountain peak

Metal – heavy back hand strikes that descend with great force to cleave or split open the opponent’s attack

Water – flowing long hand swing punches that closely resemble the pounding waves along a seashore
