I need to get back into some kung fu,but would appreciate some advice before making a decision.
Thanks.

I don't know about that school, but I did train with a guy named Robby Williams in 1989 who supposedly trained under Doc Fi Wong. I was usually the only person in class, and we did live sparring after a pretty thorough warm up. He'd beat the crap out of me.

At least he let me use dit da jow at the end of class.

I liked choi li fut, but it is hard to use it, even in live sparring. I wouldn't have minded it so much if I had come from a boxing or wrestling background, but that was the first striking art I studied. Some of the exaggerrated punches just seem pretty silly and very hard to pull off.

I think that it's probably be a good thing to study after you have a solid base in boxing and grappling.

Hi, more than 20 years ago I studied choi lei fut and "classical" kung fu with master Fung Yp Ko, but with my following experiences, always if you are interested in effective fighting, try something else!
