WaLu Gong Fu was created by Chris Casey, also known as Kai Sai. It is a continuation of the Art Jeet Kun Do that Bruce Lee had started. WaLu uses Taiji, Xingi, Bagua, and Wing Chung to gain internal power. These arts combined with monkey boxing and grappling to create a well rounded system capable of bringing any martial artist to the highest success.
Walu Kung-Fu is one of the quickest combat systems to teach a student the lethal projection of energy in martial arts. The focus of the movements is not on the independent movement of the limbs. The limbs are simply conduits for the whole body to express the explosive energy through them. In other words, the arms are used in a unitary manner and not in an isolated state.
In Walu you learn to slosh all of your body weight into the limb that you are using to attack your opponent. Shock Force! When you are performing Walu properly every strike, block, and kick creates a mind-hit shock to the attacker.
The only way you can create shock force is to achieve a totally relaxed, fluid body state. Relax even on impact and never, ever tense your body for an instant during an attack. Your hand strikes are armless striking and our kicks are called legless kicking.
The emphasis in this terminology is to focus the mind on the relaxed unitary nature of the limbs and not to think of your arms or legs in a tense segmented fashion. It is an advanced system for developing the neurological pathways in the brain to allow the mind to express the shock force mental energy through a unitary, fluid body state.
Walu is a mind-dominant art. If your mind has trained your brain to develop tense, neurological pathways for combat, then, you will not experience the incredible explosive power that is present in your mind right now. If you feel your body tense at any time during your training, you are training in body-dominant art and you are cheating yourself from a whole new world of energy development. It is a new way of thinking about energy projection.
Walu's advanced energy mastery system will transform your body into a pure energy channel for power. The animalistic nature of the Walu movements, the art is not designed for sports application. Walu is not for winning trophies in a tournament or grappling an opponent to get them into a submission hold. This is not to say that all of that training is unfruitful.
WaLu is the evaluation direct descendant of Jeet Kune Do! Jeet Kune Do means "the way of the intercepting fist" also known as "Stop Hit". WaLu is energy that explodes from internal energy, creating what is called Fajing. It is a synthesis of BaguaZang, Xingiquan, and Taijiquan combined with yoga work for a complete system of internal Kung Fu.
The training will include some excursions such as a visit to Turkish bath house in Miami Beach, coral cliffs rock climbing in Dania Beach, Parkour at Nova Gymnastics, and an option to visit Buddhist temple.
