Shing Tak Tong is an extremely traditional kung fu school and in the traditional way, our association has remained very reclusive, finding students by word of mouth and or chance encounters. We have resisted popularizing our style, hoping to continue maintaining a high standard of students and ignoring the trends and the evolution of modern martial arts. To date, Chinese Kung Fu has spread throughout the globe and has become a well known art. Unfortunately, there has been a dilution of Chinese martial arts and many have the misperception that kung fu is mostly a performing art. The original purpose and meaning of Chinese martial arts is slowly disappearing.
