Last Sunday saw a collaboration of Kung Fu teachers and students from the Wu Chi School of Kung Fu attend a workshop presented by 10th Degree Gold Belt Arthur Cunningham.
More than 25 students and teachers from Kung Fu schools across Mullumbimby, Byron, Lismore, Nimbin, Dunoon and Pottsville attended the full-day workshop held at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall.
Yuan Fu Arthur Cunningham taught techniques and philosophy that related to the art of Hsing I Kung Fu.
Hsing I is a style of Kung Fu that is trained to develop explosive attacking techniques. Whereby the practitioner is able to contact an opponent and disarm them within three seconds (if it goes longer than three seconds then you need more Kung Fu training).
The students were put through their paces with physical and mental discipline a priority. After learning a variety of techniques, Arthur spoke about using martial arts to pursue the higher virtues of developing the mind and character.
It was inspirational day for all Wu Chi Kung Fu students involved and there is a plan for another workshop to be held in September.
