You’ll train in small groups which allow a nurturing, personal approach to teaching and learning.

You’ll learn various kung fu bare hands forms, weaponry, self defence applications, self defence against weapons or knife, dim mak pressure points, Chinese lion dancing and special breathing and meditation exercises. Real life self-defence techniques are put into combat practice in a safe and respectful manner. You may even want to be trained as an instructor and become certified to teach or compete in regular kung fu tournaments which are held locally and internationally.

On the mind and emotions level, kung fu martial arts at the Golden Lion Academy will help you improve mental focus and inner strength; your memory and concentration will improve; you’ll reduce stress and anxiety and have calmness of mind. Improved confidence, discipline and courage are part of the benefits you’ll receive with our classes, which emphasize the traditional values that are important in shaping personal character.

While you gain a lean fit body, our classes will help you improve your strength, endurance, balance, coordination, reflexes, flexibility and range of motion while you learn to defend yourself. You’ll no longer be bullied.

Special kung fu breathing techniques help you to conquer anxiety, stress and fear, and improve health. Your concentration, memory and mental clarity will strengthen while your confidence, courage and self-esteem improve. 

Apart from gaining the benefits of kung fu, honesty, integrity, patience, tolerance and respect for ourselves and others are reinforced through our class structure. 

You'll learn from highly qualified Masters who have extensive experience in their field, they are assisted by specially trained instructors.

Want to be able to defend yourself, build your self esteem and confidence?

Self defence kung fu martial arts Rowville Berwick Murrumbeena Melbourne

Martial arts with the Golden Lion will strengthen your mind and body, build your confidence and self-esteem, and teach you self defence.

Defending yourself is a skill that CAN be learnt. You can learn to defend yourself against a knife, stick or an unarmed assailant. We'll teach you how to do that in our classes for adults, children and parents.

If you are physically attacked for no reason at all, you’ll use your knowledge of self defence, bare hand and leg techniques, weaponry and dim mak pressure points to defend yourself effectively. You’ll know how to keep out of danger and you’ll no longer be vulnerable to being assaulted or bullied. Let's face it, society is becoming more violent, more dangerous, each day.

You’ll have many opportunities to learn other aspects of kung fu that we teach, such as, tournament training, chi internal power development, iron palm conditioning, wu shu, and lion dancing. And you’ll be able to replicate the modern moves you see in the movies.

Unfit, overweight or uncoordinated?

While you build your self defence abilities, you'll also be giving your body a full workout. You’ll develop strength, fitness, coordination, balance, focus and control when you practice the various kung fu weaponry techniques and forms, the subtle techniques and moves that make this Chinese martial arts so effective as a means of self defence. With our Golden Lion Kung Fu Black Belt programme, we build on this --- we don’t expect you to start fit, but we will help you become fit and strong.

Worried that you won’t fit in, that you’re not the right ‘type’?

There is no ‘type’ at Golden Lion, even our kung fu instructors don’t come in ‘one size fits all.’ They are tall, short, male and female, young and old and from all walks of life.

What our teachers do have in common is that they teach and practise the philosophy of kung fu, in particular the shaolin tradition that has proven so beneficial to our students.
