The Hung Fut System has had eight generations of grandmasters who oversee the direction and purity of this unique style of Kung Fu.
Hung Fut Philosohy & Rules
Excellence in every class
Ancestral wisdom, tradition and excellence that has been passed down to generations of Masters
8th Generation Grandmaster, Sifu Tai Yim, has brought the wisdom of the Hung Fut System to the Western World. Most importantly, Tai Yim has upheld a legacy of excellence and timeless knowledge that he has passed down to his most dedicated students: those who have met the highest requirements in discipline, persistence and dedication to become the 9th Generation Masters.
The 9th Generation Masters, much like Sifu Tai Yim, carry forward the values, the ancestral wisdom and the tradition of the Hung Fut Style to ensure that we pass the highest standards in martial arts down to everyone of our students.
what They’re Saying
Grandmaster Tai Yim’s instructors are the kindest, most patient, and often humorous martial arts practitioners you may ever encounter. They are the living embodiment of true martial artists who know how to engage students, help them grow, and achieve their goals.”
This school is impeccably clean. The bathroom and changing room is always spotless. The main training hall is immaculate. Martial arts schools typically do not set high standards for cleanliness, and for an OCD mom like me, this is priceless.
The students, from young to old, are all excellent classmates. Polite, considerate, hard-working, positive. Simply a wonderful environment to learn authentic traditional Shaolin Hung Fut.
I can’t say enough good things about Tai Yim Kung Fu. I have been going to this school for over 30 years and I’m proud to say that my twin sons are now attending as well. When it comes to traditional Shaolin Kung Fu there is no other school that comes close. I am also very pleased with the schools ability to continue teaching during Covid-19 with online lessons. Thank you Sifu Tai Yim for years of learning and life lessons.
I joined the Tai Yim Kung Fu School in 2001 at the age of 19 when I moved to the U.S., as I was starting college. The system’s philosophy and wisdom truly spoke to me, but beyond that, the motivation and workout I was getting was inspiring and ensured my renewed desire to train daily. I’ve since left the US to pursue other opportunities, but I still carry the lessons, the training, which I still practice, the wisdom of the Hung Fut system and the lifelong friendships it has gifted me with, my Kung Fu Family. I consider Sifu Tai Yim a dear friend and an outstanding Grandmaster, who deeply cares about his community, and teaching all students what true excellence in the practice of Kung Fu really is about.
