"In this art we have no rules or regulations. In a street fight there are no judges or referees, anything goes, my life or yours. We don't go into a stance before we fight or imitate any animals. You move from any position you are in. Go into a stance and you waste time. Time that could have been spent hitting your attacker and ending the fight. Go into a stance and there is no question that you are going to fight, and you lose the element of surprise, a fight is a fight. It is my life or yours! If you win, you might kill me. I might fall and crush my skull on the sidewalk and die. If you break my knee or put out my eye then I am ruined for life. I can't honestly do less that my best, and in a fight my best is to win."

TSOI LI HO FUT HUNG KUNG FU
Kung Fu San Soo is not a sport. It is an integrated fighting technique based on principles of physics and anatomy. It consists of combinations of strikes to vulnerable points and a wide variety of leverage techniques that are not dependent on size or strength. These combinations do not necessarily follow a set pattern and can be changed instantly to suit the situation. Proper application, intense concentration and controlled breathing allow the trained fighter to develop extreme power. Our training emphasizes agility, poise, humility and respect for our fellow man. Persistent practice instills self confidence which enables a person to perform consistently and effectively.
