Unique Martial Arts Practice

Immerse yourself in our distinctive and authentic approach to martial arts. We teach three classical styles: Tiger Crane kung fu is more explosive and powerful; YongChun White Crane kung fu was developed by a woman in ancient China and relies on clever techniques instead of muscular strength; Shuang Yang is our ‘soft’ form, practised slowly and deliberately to develop core and internal strength through sequenced exercises and an esoteric meditative approach (similar to Tai Chi). This unique range of styles empowers students of all levels: whatever your level of physical fitness, age or gender and whether you’re a beginner or an advanced practitioner, you’ll find a home in our club’s dynamic and empowering training programs.

Join us today and embark on a journey that transforms your life through the art of Kung Fu.

Members Testimonials

I immediately fell in love with tiger crane kung fu, with balanced classes and an instructor with a flair, deep depth of knowledge and passion, not only for teaching, but for the style itself; it was only inevitable. It was and still is life changing for me, seriously recommended.

Theodore H

Dave has been a fantastic teacher over the last five years.  I started training after seeing how he motivated my children and can honestly say five years later that despite middle age approaching I am in the best shape I have ever been, and can do things I was never able to do before. Kung Fu makes you awesome!

Gregg B

I began studying Tiger Crane Kung Fu with Dave Courtney Jones over a decade ago and have not looked back. The style is as challenging as it is rewarding, and the physical and mental benefits are constant and lasting. The club is always welcoming and Dave is a very experienced instructor with deep knowledge and passion.
I would recommend anybody to give a class a try – you will not regret it.
