Chinese Boxing - Juniors                                      Friday 7:30 - 9:00

The class is for 7 - 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 £4 per class








Beginners Wing Chun                                     Friday 7:30 - 9:00


The basic training method of Wing Chun involves the practitioner remaining stationary in the Gee Kim Yeung Maa (abduction stance) which develops leg strength and balance whilst you concentrate on the intricacies of the hand movements.  This also makes Wing Chun the perfect martial art to learn during these times of social distancing.

The Beginners class will focus on the basic blocks and strikes and the first form of the art - Siu Lim Tao. 

Due to current restrictions on class size we cannot accept new members to this class at the moment. 

But if you are interested you can get in touch using the form below, we will add you to our waiting list and get back in touch as soon as we are able to accommodate you.



£6 per class.

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!
