“Sifu McGeough is an exceptional teacher. His depth of knowledge of kung fu and combat are vast, matched with breathtaking skill. I enjoy every lesson!"
“Each session has been carefully adapted and adjusted to meet the thorough requirements of the discipline, whilst ensuring diversity - and for me to develop personal interests or overcome difficulties. I am incredibly grateful for all the hard work he has put into our sessions."
"Lee has been my Sifu for around 6 years now. I came to him with no fighting knowledge or martial arts experience. I'm learning new things about my myself and my kung fu on an almost daily basis! ”
“Sifu McGeough doesn't just articulate the fighting aspects of his deep kung fu knowledge, but also the theory and principle behind the many styles he's mastered, allowing students a depth of learning I've not encountered anywhere else."
“I find Sifu’s enthusiasm infectious, and I am inspired by everything he does. He treats everyone as an individual, providing useful, constructive feedback, and showing he values and cares about his students and their martial arts progress and journey.”
"I imagine teaching the complexities of classical kung fu is not an easy task but Sifu manages to provide clarity and context into his teachings as well as remaining very down to earth and relatable person which makes learning from him a very enjoyable process."
Whether you are a complete beginner or a more experienced martial artist looking for a new system, get in touch.
