Since I have been training, I feel so fit and healthy that I don’t know how I survived without it. The instructors are great and very helpful.

Adult Kung Fu Member

I started at the academy to improve my fitness, shape up my body and follow an old interest in martial arts. I found a family first, a group of great people who quickly became a group of mates and I've been learning something new every day ever since. I'm 35 years old and never been this fit in my life. At the academy the more effort you put in the more you get back from it!! Thanks Sifu and thanks to all the amazing instructors and staff!!


This academy keeps true to the idealogies and techniques of Choy Lay Fut Buk Sing. Coming from a strong lineage, the academy really teaches you what true Kung Fu is all about. The instructors are great and makes for a great training environment. Training here has really enlightened me on my physical and mental strength as well as improve them.

Everyone's willingness to teach here at the Balcatta Academy makes it a lot more fun and easy to get the most out of the classes.

Great family friendly environment, combined with highly enthusiastic and dedicated instructors creates a positive and safe method of learning this technical Martial Art that you will benefit from physically, mentally and spiritually. After four years of training at the academy and two years for my eight year old daughter I wouldn't go anywhere else. Sifu George has been true to the art of Choy Lay Fut Buk Sing by keeping the training traditional, and only seeks advice from his Sifu and masters of the Art in Hong Kong and Mainland China keeping the values of this centuries old martial art true to it's core.

I can honestly say that all of the above has happened!

Looking forward to many years of training!

For someone looking to start martial arts with no previous experience it can be intimidating thought of rocking up to your first class. Sifu George and all the other instructors are very welcoming and provide an accepting, safe environment to learn in. I find the teaching of excellent standard with instructors praising and critiquing in an appropriate manner. The classes are very well thought out and have a simple, logical flow. I'm really enjoying my Kung Fu journey - I wish I had started sooner! I encourage anyone thinking about starting to do so at this school
