Hung Leng Kuen Kung Fu is suitable for all body types and all levels of experience, we welcome new members all year round and your first few sessions will be free - feel free to come and give it a go!

Taught by highly trained instructors, Hung Leng Kuen Kung Fu is a style developed by founder and lifetime practitioner, Sijo J.R. Dutton, from several Martial Art styles, incorporating the traditional animal-based Kung-Fu forms, Shaolin Longfist, Bak Mei, Tai Chi Chuan, Chi Kung, Baguazhang and Weaponry. Hung Leng Kuen develops health, focus, strength, flexibility, knowledge, ability, and self-confidence for practical, on-the-street self-defense and for those who wish to learn a traditional martial art.

All areas of martial arts can be found in Kung Fu, as it is the origin of many eastern martial arts. Striking, kicking, trapping, and grappling are found across everything we do! We run Traditional Kung Fu classes, Tai Chi classes, and FREE SELF DEFENCE classes all for students. Our FREE Self Defence Sessions are supported by SUSU & Team Southampton in order to provide safety for the students of the University of Southampton.
