Feng Shou

Feng Shou is the Li style version of Kung Fu. It is an internal system, utilising all the principles of T’ai Chi posture and control. Feng Shou is generally translated as ‘Hand of the Wind’; you do not see the wind – you only see its effects.

When this beautiful Art is expertly performed the various techniques: ward-offs, parries, evasions, strikes, kicks, locks, throws and controls, follow one another forming a continuous flowing movement.

When properly executed in this way the movement is deceptive as the system is a highly effective martial art. The motto of the Feng Shou system is “The Softness of a Butterfly’s Wing but with the Hardness of Steel

Feng Shou is ideally suited for semi-contact and full contact sparring competitions.
