Kung Fu means excellence through repetition. It’s more than a hobby or an extracurricular activity; it is a way of life. The ethics and principles of traditional Wing Chun Kung Fu are weaved into your personal and professional life. It becomes who you are.
We teach because we love it and we want to help you live a long and healthy life through Kung Fu. In other words, a life filled with excellence!
You will flourish and thrive in our family orientated school that has a great warm and welcoming atmosphere. In our purpose built academy, everybody works together to help each other grow, while growing themselves.
Can you effectively defend yourself and your family against a random act of violence?
The world can be a dangerous place and there is much in the media about carjackings, home invasions, one-punch attacks and more. How would you react if you or your family member became the victim of an attack? The way you react is determined by your natural instinct and training. If you haven’t been trained at all, then you’re at risk.
Don’t be a victim. Become fitter, stronger and a more confident you, all while learning the skills you’ll need to avoid, de-escalate, escape or defend quickly.Our holistic approach to training your mind, body and soul will help you:
- Learn a reality based step-by-step system designed to enable a smaller person to overcome a larger adversary using effective hand techniques
- Discover how to use your natural flinch response to protect yourself and attack if necessary
- Utilise your opponents inertia and energy to your advantage, no matter what their height, weight, gender or whether your are up against single or multiple attackers
- Understand the traditional Wing Chun principles and learn how to apply them to everyday situations
- Incorporate the use of everyday items as a makeshift self-defence weapon tool
Get Fitter and Stronger Mentally and Physically, Face Challenges Head On and Attack Life with Vigour and Passion
If you have ever taken a hit to your body or your confidence and self-belief, we at Kung Fu Southside will teach you how to take the knocks and come back fighting. The key to resilience is learning to get back up, dust yourself off and try again (without making the same mistake twice)
- Learn new techniques and challenge your mind and body
- Persevere and thrive as your self-confidence and self-belief grows
- Gain a newfound respect for yourself, for others and for the art
- Become the person you have always wanted to be but never thought you could be

How long will it take to get to black belt?
Level one to Instructor grade will take 3 to 5 years depending on your time and skill-set but this is a journey not a race and we encourage, help and do all we can to help you achieve your goals.
