This is not merely a class in Ba Gua Jang but offers a complete system of Wudang martial arts with an impeccable continuous lineage, taught in Temple style. All of these arts are taught for health, meditation, and combat proficiency.
Headmaster Shannon Kawika Phelps has been a private student of Grandmaster Bow Sim Mark for over ten years, specializing in Fu Ba Gua Jang (Sifu Mark is heir to the entire Fu family system). He is personally tutored by Fu Sheng Long (Victor Fu of VanCouver, BC Canada), third grandson of Fu Zhen Song and only Fu family member who teaches the family art in North America.
Kawika also travels yearly to Guangzhou, China, where he undergoes extensive daily training with the entire Fu family, led by Fu Tie Long (Fu Wing Fei's eldest son and present patriarch of the Fu family).
Kawika's students are under the care of a unique teacher, totally immersed in the Fu family Wudang tradition. He is the author of soon-to-be-published book The Dragons of Guangzhou, a history of the Fu family tradition.
