Natural Boxing is a Northern Chinese Wushu style, made famous in the twentieth century by Master Wan Lai Sheng, who was celebrated both as an unbeaten fighter, winner of many challenge matches and lei tai competitions, and one of the first modern scholars of Wushu.

Master Wan brought Natural Boxing Wushu from Beijing area down south to Fujian Province, where he lived during the later part of his life. This course will be taught by Master Wan's only live-in disciple, Master Gu Jian Liang.

Expect a lot of fast attacking movements, for which this style is rightly famous - speed is a key principle of Natural Boxing.

Conditioning exercises form an important and integral part of Natural Boxing Training (including Iron Shirt) - Natural Boxing makes use of many conditioning training aids including steel rings, steel bars, steel balls, iron ball filled bean bags etc.
