Wing Chun

Here the White Cloud student learns to fight at closer quarters. Wing Chun is a system based on straight lines and direct movements but is also designed to be used against opponents of any size or strength.

The first form of Wing Chun (Siu Lim Tao) is used to teach the basics that the student needs for stationary sparring. Once this level is reached the later forms (Chum Kiu and Bill Gee) are used to allow students to begin to nullify strikes coming towards them by re-direction and absorption rather than meeting them head on with force of their own.



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!
