Public Classes

In the Beginners Hung Ga Form classes, the Hung Ga forms are taught to each student in manageable sections which are built upon every week, provided the student has practiced sufficiently. These are the best classes for beginners to start off with.

In the Hung Ga Techniques class, techniques, drills, applications and fighting theory are taught.

Traditional Hung Ga Training Techniques are used in this class to further strengthen the student’s existing knowledge and train their bodies effectively.

The Sparring Classes are for students who have reached a sufficient level in their training to be able to practice their skills against each other.

The Display Training is where students can prepare for public displays and demonstrations.

There are many benefits to Hung Ga kung fu such as increased strength and fitness levels, improved grip, muscle tone and power. Hung Ga has practical fighting applications and is excellent for self defense, this can also lead to increased confidence, self-belief and courage once the practitioner becomes proficient.

Hung Ga can also vastly improve your focus and concentration levels. It can empower you to train your mind over your body to enable you to accomplish seemingly unbelievable feats. The benefits are only limited by what you contribute yourself.

Kung fu can, however, sometimes be quite physically demanding on the body and it’s joints and for some people the stances can also be difficult to maintain for periods of time. It is recommended that you contact Sifu Hepple or try an introductory class to see if it is something that you are suited to.

As a student you will learn the following hand and weapons forms (patterns) and their practical applications:

There will also be an opportunity to learn extra knowledge, forms and skills through regular seminars and tests.

Each class consists of two half’s. The first half comprises a qigong warm up, stance training and strength training. There is then a short break before the second half of the class where you will either be taught a section from one of the forms above, practical fighting applications from the forms, sparring, tradition training methods and body conditioning, weapons training or general practice sessions. Please check the timetable for updated information on individual classes.

For these classes you will need loose clothing, such as tracksuit bottoms and a t-shirt and flat, comfortable shoes or trainers. A drink to hydrate at half-time and at the end is recommended.
