Our school has been operating since 1991.
A training program is based on Chinese culture, traditions and system of teaching. Its not just about fighting, its way of life, it combines both spiritual and physical.
Regardless of your initial intention: you may want to get in shape, you may prefer to participate in training as a way of meditating through movement, you can pick some self-defense course or internal mind and body training. Whatever your preference may be, that’s all included in the traditional way of Hung Kuen.
You can meet new friends, people of the same mindset and develop your social skills, as classes are mixed. And we organize social events where you can meet people from other groups of the kung-fu school.
What you can expect from Hung Kuen training?
Blood, sweat and tears. Plus FUN.
Hung Kuen is a complete kung-fu system and it mainly relies on a strong body and powerful techniques. So, the entire training is aimed to support and develop those areas.
You will learn proper postures which not only support your body during exercising techniques but also create strong lower body foundations (legs and hips). Techniques – such as strikes, kicks, throws, locks – create strong arms, shoulders and torso and create good connections between the lower and upper part of your body.
Some additional exercises will develop mainly strengthen your tendons and some your whole body.
Forms provide coordination and stability and start your self-defense training which will be developed during partner training.
Hung Kuen training is definitely not easy but creates a base for a lifetime development, as you can improve and perfect your skills, not only while young, but during the entire course of your life.
Even better than attempting to get your answers by reading this page twice is to give Hung Kuen training a try and you will feel and see what a proper hard kung-fu training stands for.
And if you intend to dive into all a little deeper, you can also be a member of our Lion Dance group. This is a voluntary addition to the Hung Kuen training.
Note: If you are interested primarily in health and internal body and mind training you may check our Tai Chi classes.

Additional informations: Wong Fei Hung – Lam Sai Wing – Chan Hon Chung Lineage
Our kung fu (gong fu 功夫) school Hung Kuen Kung-fu Brno is connected to this lineage through Jim Uglow Si-fu who teaches the complete system as it was passed on to him by his teacher Chan Hon Chung. After the death of his teacher (1991) he continued to study under his elder kung-fu brother Kong Pui Wai.
There are no secrets in the Hung Kuen, just that this information is not available at every corner. The teaching is intended only for those who are seriously interested in the traditional system – with all that it brings. That means with the exact succession of individual exercises, forms, work with a partner, etc. Every next exercise is presented to the student only then, when he or she is ready for it.
If you are willing to first “empty your cup” and break free of all that you are imagining under theHung Kuen, and start to study the traditional system, then you can find here what you are looking for.
