Certified Instructor Ollie Smith practised Internal kung fu in Taiwan full-time under the instruction of master Luo Dexiu. After eight years (two of which were spent as assistant instructor) he moved to Kyoto and received the first instructor certification offered by master Luo. Whilst in Japan he taught openly next to the Heian Shrine for two years. In June 2010 Oliver returned to Taiwan to complete his training, where he was then awarded the standardised official certification of Yizong Senior Instructor before relocating to the U.K. Where he was given his official school title, Long De Guan.

He is now teaching regular 1 on 1 and group lessons in Bath, Somerset.

Group Classes

New Internal Kung Fu lessons in Bath

The lessons focus on Internal Kung Fu and the many various methods of training which build strength both physically and mentally.

Focusing on form and practical fighting application the lessons suite those that are prepared to join in physically demanding exercise and sparring.

We do not practise throwing yet even though there is a strong history of throwing application, if student numbers increase we could move the class to a more suitable venue.

Fighting Applications.
Fighting methods taught range from quite elaborate traditional applications to contemporary, practical direct attacks.

Breathing Methods.
Breathe like you've never breathed before, with dedicated exercises that help to train the internal organs.

Kung Fu Forms.
With strong ties to fighting application - taking on the forms of Taiji, Bagua and Xingyi is quite the challenge, but, eventually becomes a truly rewarding journey.

Martial Drills.
Unite the body and mind whilst conditioning muscles and tendons. From warming up to issuing power, stepping, striking, and throwing drills.

I look forward to hearing from you.
