Syracuse Kung Fu teaches traditional Southern Shaolin Temple Hung Ga Kung Fu in upstate New York. Classes are taught by Sifu Sharif A. Bey, 4th generation from China’s hero Wong Fei Hung, and disciple of NY Chinatown’s Master Frank Yee.
Hung Ga is known for its devastating close-range hand techniques, and is based on 5-animal (Tiger, Crane, Dragon, Snake, & Leopard) and 5-element (Earth, Water, Fire, Gold, Wood) techniques. Hung Ga Kung Fu combines both hard and soft power for a complete health and self-defense system of internal power and mental focus.
We understand that no two students are alike, and thus gear teaching to the individual while still offering challenge and goals. We help men, women, and children train to develop mind, body, and spirit, and offer the potential for unlimited physical and mental growth.
