What is Choy Lee Fut Kung Fu?

Choy Lee Fut Kung Fu is a complete fighting method and martial art, one of the most widely practiced Kung Fu styles inside and outside China today. It is well known for its speed and power, its smooth circular body movements and flexible footwork.

Choy Lee Fut combines the powerful hand techniques characteristic of southern styles with the versatile kicks of the northern systems. It emphasises the intelligent use of strength and the combination of external force with the internal will.

Program benefits

Self Confidence

By learning to defend yourself you develop confidence in how to handle life’s obstacles and negative pressures encountered throughout.

Self Control

By learning about respect for themselves, instructors, family and peers it naturally leads to an increase in self control.

Our Classes

The Kung Fu style that we teach is known as Choy Lee Fut. It is one of the 5 major martial arts styles in the world today.

Bruce Lee is quoted as saying: “Choy Li Fut is the most effective system that I’ve seen for fighting more than one person. It is one of the most difficult styles to attack and defend against. Choy Lee Fut is the only style of kung fu that traveled to Thailand to fight the Thai boxers and hadn’t lost.”

Classes are thought in the pure and pristine fashion as it was taught in China by the ancestral generations of Grand Master Chen Yong Fa (current keeper of the art) because the teaching method is important to prevent injuries and to draw the maximum therapeutic benefits.

Children Kung Fu

Our martials arts school has an extensive children’s Kung Fu program that is designed to develop your child not only physically, but also mentally. Life skills are introduced through the art form to help prepare your kid(s) for their life ahead.

Teaching them about focus, goal setting, perseverance, respect and self control will help them learn to make the right decisions in life. Children cease to be an easy target, and are able to deal more confidently with the many challenges ahead. Bullying at school, outside of school, online, negative peer pressures and the list goes on.

We can’t always shield them from these external influences. But as a parent there is something we can do, we can prepare them. We can prepare them to be more confident, to be more resilient and to be better prepared.


The Instructors

Dominic Ferland is the Head Kung Fu instructor and a Leopard Disciple of Grand Master Chen Yong Fa (current keeper of the art). Most recently he was awarded overall Kung Fu Champion in Boston 2017 and Orlando, Florida in 2018. The school is the headquarters of Choy Lee Fut in North America and one of only two accredited schools in Canada.

Under his supervision, the venerable Wing Sing Tongs (disciples) and Hung Sing Gwoons (instructors) together oversee the classes for children, teens and adults. Their attitudes and care are instilled into their students each and every class.

They are a truly unique group of instructors who want to see each and every student be the best they can be and feel proud of themselves both in kung fu and in their lives.

Who can practice Kung Fu?

Everybody can learn martial arts regardless of his or her age and physical abilities. Every student learns to practice within his or her natural range of motion which is why we offer separate classes for different age groups and students with different levels of skill.

  • Children (4-12)
  • Teenagers
  • Adults
What classes do you offer?

Since 1988 we have been offering Kung Fu classes in Montreal’s West Island with instructors that learned directly from the lineage holders. As a result we provide our students with tested teaching methods that bring to class the many centuries of development and evolution of the art.
