Learn Kung Fu In Ipoh

What do you usually do on a Sunday morning? A group of young boys and girls gather at the hall of Wisma Chin Woo, owned by Ipoh Chinese Chinwoo Athletic Association to learn kung fu. Students are divided into three groups according to their level of expertise – Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Levels.

I dropped by one recent Sunday morning whilst the children were hard at work, under the watchful eyes of their instructors, and some parents, who would take the trouble to accompany their children while they learn. Can you imagine that some of these kids are only five or six years old?

Chinwoo Ipoh has actually been conducting kung fu classes for years already. Even though I knew about these classes, I never realised the hard work put into learning the martial art. The best thing is that parents only need to pay RM10 per month per child; that’s RM9 fees and RM1 for miscellaneous expenses. I was quite amazed that these classes are so heavily subsidised by the association.

Spending time watching the children train, I really take my hat off to the instructors, who are so dedicated to the art – they ensure that each child could follow the pace; understand what’s being taught. Although basic Mandarin is the medium of instruction, non-Chinese have no problems following the classes. Yes, I chatted with the Malay and Indian kids.

In addition to Sundays, extra training sessions are held, for a small additional fee, during school holidays, usually in the afternoon. Wow, talk about passion and dedication to art!

  1. Interesting…just a few enquiries? Do they just do kung fu? How about wushu? Any age barrier ?

  2. Wushu means “martial arts” so kung fu is also a type of wushu. Chin Woo teaches Chin Woo’s kung fu passed down from China.

    There’s no age barrier but adults can learn Tai Chi.

  9. Hi Shekhar,

    As far as I am aware, you will have to purchase the t-shirt. Pants are your own track pants for sports.

    Anything else, please ask those who are in charge at Ipoh Chin Woo who will be able to give you accurate information.

  11. Hi Zhafri,

    Beginners start off with Junior Wushu Classes held every Sunday from 10am-12noon. Coach will spot potential of students and train them for all kinds of competitions, including state level and the World Chinwoo Wushu competition which is held annually abroad.

    Also, the Perak Wushu Association selects talented students from schools as well as Chinwoo Association to represent Perak state in competitions.

    The main factors are to start at an early age and display potential, in order to represent Perak.

    Hope this helps.
