This website is about the Fohan Quan style of Chinese Kung Fu and the Hong Xiang Wushu School where it is taught in China.
Martial artists from around the world are invited to attend the school in China, to study under the guidance of expert coaches and masters in order to learn this unique and highly practical style, and others. This style has been passed down family-style for hundreds of years and has only very recently begun to be shared with people from other countries.
In addition to Fohan Quan, the school also has courses of study in Shaolin Quan, Taiji Quan, and Sanda (kick boxing).
This is a unique opportunity to study traditional Chinese wushu in a small school, surrounded by real Chinese culture. The school is owned and run by the main master, who has been training and teaching for nearly 30 years. It is now his wish to spread his beloved style to the rest of the world.
The school is located in the town of Puyang in Henan Province, which has won awards for being among the most green and livable towns in the country.
Information about the style, its origins and ties to Shaolin kung fu can be found on the Fohan Quan Style page. If you are interested in finding out about the school and what living and training at the school is like, then you can visit the School Information page.
