The History of Kyin Kung Fu
At American Tiger Karate we teach the martial art of Kyin Kung- Fu.This system of self defense does not rely on strength, weight, or muscle power, but rather the knowledge of practiced techniques. This new found ability to protect oneself from an attacker in a self defense situation develops a heightened sense of self esteem making him or her an unlikely target for being picked on. Plus, we emphasize non-physical ways of dealing with difficult situations.
Kyin Kung Fu is based in the Martial Art of Kung Fu San Soo. The founder and Master Instructor of this school, Master Steven Gregoire, trained in the San Soo system. He received his Black Belt at a young age and immediately began teaching full time for his instructor, Dave Gonsalves. He continued to train and taught for many years then decided to open his own school. Although still based in San Soo, he saw areas of the style that he felt could be made more effective from a self defense stand point. With advances in modern fighting styles and techniques, as well as his continuous training in other styles, Master Gregoire wanted this new system to be vibrant and able to grow with the changing face of Martial Arts.
