International Kim Loong Wushu Center IKLWC (Golden Dragon Chinese Martial Arts Centre). A family run initiative headed by Dr./Shirfu Jeff Lan (Liu Youyi), Shirmo Amanda Lan(Lui Meifeng), son Jefferson (Liu Kim-Lioong)"Kim" daughter Anahita (Lui Yu-Feng) "Ana" and our dedicated students who travelled the road with us for many years.
The motto of International Kim Loong Wushu Centre
Kung Fu/Wushu is for health and self defence. Physical Kung Fu develops the external body only. One must attain internal training along with the training of the 3 inner faculties of Jing, Shen & Qi - Essence, Mind Power and Internal Energy.
Kung Fu not only makes a person strong, agile and healthy but also strengthens the internal body systems which prolong life.
The believe is that a student will automatically acquire in his/her long process of learning the arts by having patience, insight and calmness.
To be a good practitioner one needs patience to develop his/her techniques and force. Insight to understand the workings of the arts principles and calmness to pinpoint his/her opponents’ movements in free sparing. These qualities unconsciously help a person to be sensitive and composed even in a tense situation.
A few highlights to allow us to share and allow our older members the joy of remembrance. Thank you to our students, our kung fu family for making all our years of effort and hard work well worth the journey.
