Kung Fu training styles

Chinese internal Kung Fu helps a person have a fulfilling life.

The underlying philosophy of Traditional Chinese Medicine is that man / woman are perceived as multi-dimensional beings, functioning on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. In order to achieve and maintain personal balance, one must cultivate harmony in all these areas.

Chinese Internal Arts were developed 1000's of years ago specifically to teach us how to recognize and accept the inevitable challenges presented by the fundamental challenges of everyday life that may disrupt harmony, and teach us how to provide appropriate response. These Arts are taught with patience and spirit, varying degrees of depth are presented, dependent on your level of understanding and skill level.

Chen Pan Ling Foundation

The Chen Pan Ling International Foundation was established by Chen Yun Ching and James & Shou Mei Sumarac in 2005. All three worked tirelessly, spent 10 years travelling the world together and conducted many International seminars, spreading the authentic teachings of Chen Pan Ling through his son Chen Yun Ching. They produced and translated 3 texts, 15 reference DVD's that encompass almost the entire system of Chen Pan Ling.

In this time Chen Yun Ching, James & Shou Mei have met many wonderful people and made many friends, this has given them great fulfillment and satisfaction, however the Chinese have an expression there is no party without an ending. Due to the recent retirement from teaching of Master Chen Yun Ching, the Chen Pan Ling International Foundation has concluded.

We would like to sincerely thank everyone who has supported this Foundation through participation in events and the purchasing of merchandise that has enabled us to produce this valuable reference material.

James, as the adopted brother of Chen Yun Ching and his constant assistant over the past 10 years has embraced the complete teachings of Grandmaster Chen Pan Lings system and deeply appreciates and is eternally grateful for this honour. James and Shou Mei continue to teach their many students the classical Chinese Martial & Healing Arts both at Wu Lin Retreat in Australia and internationally, as they have done for the past 40 years.
