Choy Lee Fut Code of Conduct

  1. The practitioners of Choy Lee Fut train and practice for the purpose of developing a strong and healthy foundation for their bodies. Therefore the practitioner should keep practicing and never forsake its way.

  2. With the high level of skill obtained in kung fu (martial art), a kind, gentle, good and patient heart must also be developed - this is similar to the Buddhist teachings, also one must never use his (or hers) skill to commit injustice or injury to others, but only for the purpose of defending oneself. By committing injustice and injury to others one goes against the rules and regulations of society and the government.

  3. Respect and obey all other previous and older Choy Lee Fut practitioners, as they are your seniors, this reflects on your politeness and good heart.

  4. All fellow classmates are brothers and sisters in Choy Lee Fut and belong to the same generation. Act towards each other in kind, gentle, faithful and reliable way, respecting each other through trust, friendship and honesty. Do not bully the weaker brother or sister in anyway.

  5. Brothers in Choy Lee Fut are not allowed to fight with each other. To distinguish a Choy Lee Fut practitioner, the action of the tiger claw is used.

  6. Choy Lee Fut practitioners shouldn't drink alcohol in excess and shouldn't eat meat in excess since this can make person disorientated and as a result mind and spirit are becoming unclear, accidents may happen which could damage practitioners body.

  7. Choy Lee Fut Students are not allowed to teach other people outside the school as it may attract trouble to them, and others. The exception is if you deem a person to be of pure and gentle heart, then you may teach that person and pass your knowledge on.

  8. Never misuse your skill on others believing you are better than they are, as this only causes trouble. Do not fight/bully others to show that you are better than they are.

  9. When using kung fu you have learnt you are to think how to remain humble and not be proud of your success: not placing yourself in front of others. If you misuse your knowledge to gain money, then you are within Choy Lee Fut family a betrayer of our founder's wishes and bringing down the group's name.

  10. If you cannot abide by these rules then you may leave or if you break them and dispute the rules, the Master may expel you from the school.
