Great Grand Master Chan Heung

Choy Lay Fut Kung Fu was created by the Great Grand Master CHAN HEUNG in 1836, and was named out of respect for his two masters, CHOY Fook, LAY Yau San, and finally, FUT (meaning Buddha), as a token of respect to the monks and the Shaolin Temple.

Choy Lay Fut Kung Fu is regarded as one of the most powerful and effective systems in the Chinese Martial Arts. The roots of this unique style originated in the famous Shaolin Temple and it consists of both the Northern and Southern Shaolin styles combined.

The aggressive, yet graceful movements are characterized by agility in the waist and shoulders, plus a strong, solid foundation in footwork. Choy Lay Fut is a highly sophisticated, complete and effective fighting system and one of the few traditional styles that is practical for self defense and good health. In fact, it is the most popular style in the Chinese Martial Arts today. Bruce Lee was once quoted as saying, “Choy Lay Fut is the most effective system that I’ve seen for fighting more than one person, and is the most difficult style to defend against.”

Grand Master Tarm Sarm

Grand Master and founder of the Buk Sing branch of Choy Lay Fut Kung Fu was Tarm Sarm, a man who possessed a natural ability as a great fighter. Due to his constant sparring and challenge matches, he became well known and respected throughout the Chinese Martial Arts community.

On one occasion during his early training, while his Master Liu Charn was away, Tarm Sarm became involved in an argument with three brothers. The argument escalated into a full blown fight, and Tarm Sarm defeated the three brothers. As his luck would have it, all three brothers were his Master’s Si Sook’s ( junior colleagues or Kung Fu uncles). Upon Master Liu Charn learning of the fight, he had no choice but to expel Tarm Sarm from the school.

Due to the notoriety of this episode, and his growing reputation as an undefeated fighter, Tarm Sarm decided to venture North, and it was at Siu Buk (Little North), that Tarm Sarm established a school, which he named Buk Sing Kwoon. This school, and the style taught by Tarm Sarm, became the Buk Sing Branch of the Choy Lay Fut system.

The Buk Sing Choy Lay Fut Kung Fu Academy of Fremont is one of the few authentic Kung Fu Schools in the San Francisco Bay Area and one that follows the traditional ways of Chinese Martial Arts training, in conjunction with up-to-date, modern scientific methods. The training is designed and programmed carefully to ensure that students build a strong foundation that will enable them to develop a healthy body and clear mind.

Buk Sing Choy Lay Fut Kung Fu is regarded as one of the most powerful and effective systems in the Chinese Martial Arts. The roots of this unique style originated in the famous Shaolin Temple and consists of both the Northern and Southern styles combined.
