Ship Pal Gi Kung-Fu
Ship Pal Gi (short for Sip Pal Ban Byung Gi) can be translated as “The 18 Weapons System” or “The 18 Skills System.” The system is authentic traditional Northern Shaolin Long Fist Kung-Fu with close lineage to Northern Praying Mantis Kung-Fu only taught in a handful of schools in the United States. With the decline of traditional martial arts schools and the steady surge of popularity for mixed martial arts (MMA), at the Martial Way Kung-Fu Training Center, we pride ourselves on teaching this unique and rare traditional Kung-Fu system. Students are trained on empty hand techniques, long forms and short forms, 2-person application drills, floor techniqes, kicks, and sparring techniques. Weapons classes with staff, broadsword, and spear are also available to all students.
