The founder of the Chuan Fa Hung Choy Pai was Holger Willems. He acquired his training in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and USA by several masters ( Bradwolf, Buck Sam Kong, Baklayan, Shen Hung Xun, Kong Mien Ho, J. Pommier ).
The lessons start and end with a bow and a salute. The bowing is an expression of thanks to all the teachers and forefathers whose hard work and creativity have contributed to our martial arts. The salutation is a sign of respect meant for those who are saluted.
The exercise room ( kwoon in Chines ) is a place to learn. Training exists of warming-up, stretching, condition-, strength exercises, handforms, and -techniques, kicking, semi-contact fights, training with pad's, self-defense and practicing with Chinese weapons.
