About Shaolin Nam Pai Chuan
Shaolin Nam Pai Chuan is a traditional Kung Fu system that has been taught in the UK since 1979. Nam Pai Chuan traces its lineage back to Great Grand Master Hui Cheng of the Chek Chian Nan Hai Pooi Chee Temple in China. Master Hui was a direct descendant of the southern Shaolin tradition taught by Buddhist Monks in the tradition of Da-Mo.
Our style encompasses practical self-defence, traditional forms and sequences, sparring, conditioning, weapons training and specialisations in various animal styles prevalent in Shaolin Kung Fu. We also complement our physical fitness with the practice if Chi Gung breathing exercises.
Our style includes many elements including kicking, punching, locking, nerve point and take down techniques, practical self-defence, traditional and paired sequences, classical forms and Chi Gung breathing exercises. We also have various animal forms such as Leopard, Crane, Snake, Eagle, Tiger and Monkey. We have a rich weapons heritage with 18 traditional weapons taught including staff, spear, broadsword, halberd, butterfly knives and the three section staff to name but a few.
The club opened at Brunel in October 2009 and has developed considerably since its first year. We have a wide range of students, with around 40% of our regularly attending members being female. Lessons are in a welcoming environment, with socials occurring at least once a month, within the club, with other members of martial arts groups, and with our sister club ULU in central London. All levels are catered for, with all current members having started as white belts.

One of our grand closing events for this term, just a little get together to relax and have a breather. We will be watching a selection of cool action films, not necessarily martial arts related (but you know there will be at least one)!
