Keith Dwan is an internationally renowned Kung-fu Master from England, with a 7th degree black belt and honorary Martial Arts degree from Lancashire University. He has been practicing Kung-fu and other martial arts since the 1970s, and has won many World, European, and British titles in competitions.
This lecture will cover life lessons and skills he learned on his lifelong martial arts journey, including the story of how he was given the name Bu Hong and became the successor to pass down an ancient style of Kung-fu known as Xingyiquan from the Shanxi Province.
Master Bu Hong is a great example of lifelong learning. His continued drive to learn more about martial arts has kept him fit in mind and body and has led him on an exciting journey around the world. His wealth of knowledge will inspire and help professionals and students of all walks of life to pursue their true potential despite adversity.
When people think of Kung-fu they often think only of fighting. Kung-fu, and particularly the Kung-fu style of Xingyiquan, are based on acupressure, circulation and energy flow, and the concentration and coordination for the mind to express our intentions. You don't have to be a bodybuilder, contortionist, or mystic to practice Kung-fu, and to reap the benefits of a disciplined practice.
Join us for this insightful lecture, and let it inspire you to pursue your passion with Kung-fu determination.
