Dog Style or On the Floor Style is one of the most famous traditional Wushu styles from Fujian Province. It was created by Master Da Si Yue in the 17th century, a time of troubles and almost constant war in China following the fall of the Ming Dynasty.

Master Da Si Yue was a Buddhist nun, who escaped when her monastery was burned down by Qing troops and was forced to live in secret in the countryside of Fujian Province, where she started teaching her Wushu skills to local people.

The style is well known for having numerous powerful ground-work techniques and attacks from the ground, including many types of sweeps and scissor. It has been given the name Dog Style because the sweeps and rolls remind on-lookers of Dogs fighting and rolling about on the ground.

Practising Dog Style requires a great deal of athleticism, conditioning, and acrobatic skill, developed through diligent training, but its unique character makes all the hard work worth it.

Dog style is actively taught for 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening. Through the rest of the day you will be able to practice with some time being coached by the masters.

Your training syllabus is determined by your training requirements and is also based on your training progress - as a guide each pattern takes 2 weeks to learn.
