Actively Promoting Culture
TOP QUALITY EDUCATION PROGRAMS
The Chung Wah Kung Fu System promotes Chinese martial arts in Canada and throughout the world.
Programs run a full spectrum from traditional martial arts, lion and dragon dancing, self-defense, to health and wellness and medical related topics. We’re continually developing and refining our programs.
Lion and Dragon Dancing
Chung Wah’s teaching materials and programs have been incorporated into many training programs around the world. A keynote example is the Venezuelan National Law Enforcement Training Academy.
The Ontario York Region School Board requested Master Lee to design special traditional Kung Fu and lion dancing programs for use in the Ontario education system curriculum! Currently, several schools in the Toronto area are training teachers in the new Kung Fu and lion dancing curriculum programs! Inter-scholastic lion dance exhibitions and competitions are expected developments within the next few years.
Long-term goals of the Chung Wah System are to train qualified individuals to become System representatives for the ongoing teaching, research and promotion of Chinese martial arts. We wish to establish a major centre of study and research in North America, and to promote the value of martial arts as part of the education system. Our recent achievements have taken us a big step toward these goals!
Our websites are still in the infancy stage but already contain a lot of information. We plan to develop these sites, working toward on-line instruction and martial arts equipment sales.
Our lion dance education program was recently televised in Toronto. We’re also are planning a full line of videos for reference and distance learning!
Professional publication is an exciting new step for us and we have many projects in store for the future! Within the past year, we have produced school curriculum manuals for traditional Kung Fu and lion dancing, training manuals for qi gong health and wellness, and are anxiously awaiting a forthcoming book by Master Lee, Human Potential Martial System. The 800-page book will first published in Hong Kong, however plans are being considered for English as well as several European languages!
Performing is an important way we promote our System and Chinese martial arts.
Our demo teams are extremely popular and have performed for famous celebrities, dignitaries, premiers and prime ministers, and our neighbours from all over the world! A recent honour included her majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Community and volunteer work is a significant opportunity to give something back to the community. Over the year, our teams do dozens and dozens of charity, community and multicultural performances and lion dances.
‘THIS IS KUNG FU’ PERFORMANCE SERIES
For the past several years, we have produced, directed and performed a special ongoing performance series to educate the public called, ‘This is Kung Fu’.
Combining traditional Kung Fu and story lines, ‘This is Kung Fu’ is the first project of its kind to feature high calibre, authentic, traditional arts, combined with a strong moral message to convey a deeper philosophical meaning of Chinese martial arts.
A full theatrical production, the series makes use of stage, lighting, sound, music, special effects, ‘This is Kung Fu’ holds meaning and enjoyment for everyone, young and old!
We intend to do a series of nine unique, interrelated productions. The purpose of our series is to:
As recognition of our commitment and hard work, we are the first martial arts-based organization to be inducted into the Performing Arts Council of Ontario.
Traditional Kung Fu, full contact fighting and lion dancing are a friendly, enjoyable and positive opportunity for students to test their skills. Our students consistently claim top honours at martial arts competitions and lion dance competitions world-wide.
