Sussex Nam Pai Chuan
Welcome to Nam Pai Chuan at Brighton, Sussex

There are now two classes for beginners on zoom every week: Wednesdays at 7pm and Saturdays at midday. If you are interested in a free trial session contact Matt at for more information.


The name of our System is Shaolin Nam Pai Chuan Kung Fu, one of the many styles in the rich tradition of Chinese martial arts. Taught in Brighton and Hove for over thirty years it is a broad style which incorporates all the fundamental elements of the martial arts. Practitioners learn a wide range of martial techniques, including blocking, kicking, punching, locking, throwing and nerve-point strikes. They also learn ‘forms’ - continuous, flowing sequences used to teach the essence of martial movement and combat.

Nam Pai Chuan includes many aspects which could be seen as 'styles' in their own right. These include the eighteen weapons traditionally taught in Shaolin schools and the animal forms of the tiger, snake, monkey, eagle and leopard. It is a holistic martial art where the well-being of the practitioner is emphasised, and as such includes the practise of Chi-Gung, a Chinese system of stationary and moving breathing exercise which helps to strengthen the body and develop your internal energy or chi.

Classes are held at The Cornerstone Community Centre in Hove and at the University of Sussex Sports Centre in Falmer. You are welcome to come along at any time and your first class is free. We look forward to meeting you.
