Facilities

Kungfu Family's excellent training facilities combine well-proven traditional training equipment used since hundreds of years in Kung Fu schools and temples around China, as well as modern state-of-the-art equipment. Unique is the special focus on employing traditional training techniques to bring students closer to the roots of Kung Fu.

Our school features all the traditional equipment used in Kung Fu schools, such as iron circles, wooden men, stone dumbbells, heavy sandbags, Bagua poles, you name it. In addition, we train and practice by using many traditional and specialized tools rarely seen in other places, such as rock-lock, bamboo circle, five-stars pillar, iron ball bag with Chinese herbs, and obscure historical weapons.

Mastering Kung Fu is a lifelong endeavor and regardless of your ambitions, Kungfu Family will support you in achieving them the best you can. Whatever your objective, the time, and energy that you commit, they will customize your training to your own needs.

Personalized training

On arrival, Master Li Quan will conduct a personal interview with you to establish your training needs and agree with you a training program which best suits these needs. Since people are very different in how they learn and what they like, he tries to find the best teaching approach for every individual. You can always discuss with the teacher in order to have your training schedule and course contents adjust to your specific needs and interests.

For example, you may choose to specialize in certain arts, styles, weapons, and techniques. You may also wish to receive one-to-one tuition by the Master, particularly if you have specialist training requirements. This undivided attention helps you to reach your highest potential within the shortest possible time.

Support

Above all, there are also our local Kungfu Family members who will support you in your studies, from 80 year old Chinese Grandmasters who carried on the old tradition and live active lives in the hills of western Sichuan to the their unruly grandchildren sent to the school to learn discipline and honor.

Kungfu Family qualities

Martial Arts

Kung Fu style

The school follows the southern style of Chinese Kung Fu, which main characteristic is in its mostly short and sharp power applied in actual fighting, making it very suitable for close-in combat. They pay much attention to improving your gongli (power / hardness / speed), without which any of the techniques that you will learn would look good but ineffective.

Internal exercises, such as Qi Gong, are also an integral part of their training programs and will strengthen your breathing and firmness. Only by combining inner and outer powers together, you can achieve the highest levels of Kung Fu. At Kungfu Family, they run a wide variety of courses and training options so as to best suit individual needs.

Our Kungfu Family school is beautifully located on the green northeastern outskirts of Chengdu on top of Mulan Mountain, Xindu District. It is just a 30 minute ride from the centre of town and not far from the top tourist site in town, the world-famous Panda Research Base - convenient to be in the midst of it all and yet away from the noise of the metropolis. The mountain with its stunning landscape covers an area of around 15km2 and features many rare plants.

Kungfu Family shares this unique location with the historical Mulan Temple, an important center of Buddhist learning dating back more than 400 years to the Ming Dynasty, when local people built it in commemoration of a famed Sichuanese female general called Han E. She won the affection of the commoners with many deeds of valour.

Our home, Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan Province, is famous all over China as the "Land of Abundance" (天府之都), not least due to its natural beauty, rich cultural heritage, and pleasant climate. The city hosts countless shopping malls, boutiques, restaurants, bars, cafes, street stalls – there is every opportunity to enjoy yourself when you are not training.

From sparkling alpine lakes and soaring snow-capped mountains to deep bamboo forests and sprawling tea plantations as far as the eye can see – the landscapes around Chengdu promise to take your breath away. Sichuan is justifiably often regarded as the most scenic of all regions in China and many areas are just a few hours' drive from Chengdu.

  • Review by Martin L. from Zurich, Switzerland

    "During my travel trough China, I made a break for two weeks at Kungfu Family. I lived at Kungfu Family the whole time and trained every day. As I was an absolute beginner, Shifu Li Quan showed me the basics of his Kungfu and he definitely infected me.Beside training was also time for interesting conversations where i learned a lot about Chinese culture. It was exactly what i looked for and I had a fantastic time at Kungfu Family. I can highly recommend this to everyone who want to do something different in Chengdu."

  • Review by Harry B. from Chengdu, China

    "Hello all, I began training with Sifu Lee Quan when I first arrived in Chengdu at the beginning of 2013, now almost two years later I continue to train with him, and consider it the highlight of my week.The school, located just outside Chengdu in the sub-urban Flower Town, employs various traditional training methods and equipment, such as rock weights and bamboo circles. The atmosphere among students is friendly. And Sifu Lee Quan is a dedicated teacher, who lives for Chinese Kung Fu. The school itself has basic facilities (bathroom/kitchen) and dormitories.I would recommend the school to anyone who has a genuine interest in learning Chinese Kung Fu. Whether you are living and working in Chengdu or plan only to visit for a short time. Training is a challenge and you must really push yourself to improve but in Sifu Lee Quan you have a dedicated mentor who will not only teach you about the practicalities and theory of Chinese Kung Fu, but also try and impress upon you the importance of Kung Fu spirit.Enjoy, and maybe if I'm still in Chengdu we can train together some time."

    "I was traveling in China seeking a kung fu school in Chengdu, I had the pleasant surprise of meeting Master Lee Quan. I met a very friendly person with whom I have had interesting conversations about China and of course learn the basics of kung fu . My only regret is not being able to stay longer in Chengdu."
