Chinese Boxing - Juniors                                      Friday 7:30 - 8:30

The class is for 9 - 13 year olds.  

The ancient art of Chinese Boxing - derived from the Lohan Kung Fu of the Shaolin Monks - is easy to learn and perfect for younger martial artists.  As well as teaching students how to block, kick and punch the class can also improve fitness levels, increase self-confidence & resilience and instil a certain amount of discipline into those who commit to it.


Open to new members.

First night is free, then £3.50 per class








Beginners Wing Chun                                         Friday 7:30 - 9:00

A more technical martial art that is based around proper posture and technique - perfect for anyone looking to learn a self defence system that does not rely on size and strength.


Class is open to new members.

£5 per class.     


Wing Chun & Escrima                                      Tuesday 7:30 - 9:00


After learning the fundamentals of Wing Chun on Friday's, during this class we will push students further using White Cloud's "free hand sparring".


The Escrima (sticks) are a weapon that require fast hand and strong wrists, which is why it is learnt along side Wing Chun.  The class will focus on both single and double stick techniques and combine traditional sparring techniques with practical self defence.




Class is only for current members.

£25 per calendar month.






All classes are held in the sports hall at:

St Bede's RC High School,

Green Lane,

The White Cloud Martial Arts Academy is the original school founded in 1962 by Master Derek Gordon, passed directly to his highest ranked student Master Dave Cowell in 1994 and now training exclusively at St Bede's RC Sports College.  Over the years many instructors have been trained at the White Cloud Academy and several now run successful schools of their own.  However, although these instructors are White Cloud trained they are not recognised by the Academy and as such neither are any of their students. 

The White Cloud Martial Arts Academy at St Bedes is not associated with any other school of Kung Fu and is the only place to learn the White Cloud Kung Fu system devised by Master Derek Gordon!
