Lau Gar Kuen is derived from a form of boxing practiced at Kuei Ling Temple situated in Kong Sai (Guangxi) Province in west China. It was learned from a monk on retreat from that temple by Master Lau Sam Ngan, "Three Eyed Lau", a tiger hunter, whom we honour as founder of our style. He is reputed to have earned his name because of a deep scar in the middle of his forehead which resembled a third eye. The style subsequently became popular over a large part of south west China. In fact all of the southern systems of kung fu are derived from 5 major styles namely: Lau, Hung, Choy, Li and Mok.

Lau Gar Kuen Kung Fu came to South Wales back in 1973 during the "hey-day" of martial arts movies with the breakthrough of Bruce Lee. Lau Gar Kung Fu has lasted the test of time and has benefited many hundreds of students.

Training in Lau Gar Kung Fu brings so many benefits. To start with, students will notice an increase in physical fitness, greater strength, increased balance and improved coordination. Next comes a feeling of extra vitality, better awareness and more self-confidence.

Our classes are run in a friendly but disciplined atmosphere and involve a wide range of activities, planned to improve skill and fitness. The success and quality of our classes is reflected in the high number of Black Belts, who all train regularly and still strive for perfection.
