|Choy Lee Fut Style
(Cai Li Fo, Choi Lei Fat)
Choy Lee Fut Style is actually made up of three different styles of kung fu. Chan Heung, its founder, paid homage to three influences: his teachers Choy Fook and Lee Yau San, and the teachings of Buddhism and the Shaolin System. Choy Lee Fut is one of the most popular styles of kung fu in South East Asia and North America. It uses the five animals and five-element theory. There are numerous empty hand and weapon sets, multi-person sets and special equipment training. Choy Lee Fut also has its own version of the wooden training dummy. Choy Lee Fut might best be classified as a medium-long range system with a strong emphasis on generating torque power from the waist and hips, utilizing many circular blocks and punches.
