The Bamboo Philosophy


Bamboo Kung Fu School in Toronto was founded on the principle of preserving and promoting the illustrious history of Choi Lee Fut without corrupting its fundamental combat effectiveness.

Bamboo Kung Fu is the quintessential evolution of Choi Lee Fut (also known as Choy Li Fut). Whether your goal is to train for the ring, street self-defence, or special application defence training, you will find an applicable system here. We maintain an active repertoire of techniques that will never be legal in a sporting based events but are effective methods of disabling your opponent without fail.

From the ring to the street, we train fighters. Period.

The Training Principles of Traditional Choi Lee Fut

Chan Heung, the founder of Choi Lee Fut, outlined 10 principles for students to follow when training in his style. He believed that following these principles would help the individual not only excel in his style, but also assist in creating a stronger and more well-rounded moral character. As a result, Choi Lee Fut was not just a form of martial art – it was also presented as a lifestyle.
