What is Northern Shaolin Chuen Fa ?
The Northern Shaolin style of kung fu is one of the most prominent traditional northern styles of Chinese martial arts. The northern styles of kung-fu generally emphasize long range techniques, quick advances and retreats, wide stances, kicking and leaping techniques, whirling circular blocks, quickness, agility, and aggressive attacks.
The system teaches empty-hand techniques and weaponry through predetermined combinations, known as forms, routines, or movement of sets. The students learn the basics by practicing the routines until the movements in the routines can be executed naturally based on instinct. Then, two or multiple man sets are practiced to train responses and applications of techniques learned from the sets. The practice sets/routines are not only practical in applications but are also graceful and artistic in nature. The fluidness of the movements combined with acrobatic techniques are trademarks of the Northern Shaolin sets.

Master Sebastian Soh
Adult / Children Class
It was founded in Singapore in 1971 by Master Sebastian Soh who has blended both Chinese and Japanese martial arts styles in his pursuit of perfection for versatility and specialization of different techniques for different parts of the body.
"Chuen Fa" in Chinese meaning " the way of penetrating power and grace" , and Northern Shaolin Chuen Fa is an unrestricted specialization of the 2 arts, the Japanese and Chinese martial arts. Master Sebastian Soh approached martial arts in a scientific way whereby he saw numerous barriers to overcome and constant discoveries to be made. Discovering the art is the key to learning martial art. Learning without discovering , one forgets. Thus, incorporating the traditions and cultural aspects of the martial art, Master Sebastian Soh always urge his students to contemplate analytically over every technique that he taught. He believed there is no end to every technique and also no end to perfection.
