What is Siu Lum Kung Fu?
During the Chinese Cultural Revolution, the Chinese government wanted to standardize martial arts. It is during this time that modern kung fu, wushu, came to be. Most of us grew up watching kung fu movies, however this was not the traditional martial art practiced at the Shaolin Temple prior to the Chinese Cultural Revolution.
True Siu Lum (Shaolin) is not a martial art that is based in sport. Originating over 1500 years ago, Siu Lum is based in efficiency, using a minimum amount of energy to achieve a maximum result. And it is as beautiful as it is deadly. The purpose of Siu Lum, and the potential benefits a practitioner may experience, are vast and varied, but essentially the practical use of the art is to end a conflict as quickly and efficiently as possible. This can, and hopefully will, mean that you will learn to end the conflict before it begins, thereby saving everyone involved from an unnecessary altercation.
“Self defense is like insurance. You may not use it everyday but you’ll be glad you have it when you need it most.” – Sifu Tim Simpson
