Guardians - Introduction

The Lau Gar Guardians
The Guardians are appointed by the Head of the Lau Gar style, Grandmaster Jeremy Yau.
Their mission is to support, represent, promote and develop the style of Lau Gar Kung Fu as it is taught within the British Kung Fu Association for the benefit of current and future generations of students.


Guardian Initiatives
The Guardians are responsible for raising the profile of Lau Gar by:

  • Establishing a Centre of excellence
  • Seeking opportunities to demonstrate the highest standards of public performance
  • Developing and implementing a market strategy
  • Maintaining a website suitable for the 21st Century
  • Developing internal and external communication systems
  • Establishing Lau Gar as leaders in the market place for DVDs and Chinese Martial Arts equipment

Our objective is to improve standards within the style by:

  • Securing accreditation of a new coaching course by a recognised national body
  • Ensuring the technical skill and competence of potential instructors through set criteria
  • Ensuring coaching competence through participation in the coaching course
  • Producing DVDs covering the whole syllabus plus additional training material

The Lau Gar Trust Fund
The Guardians will identify ways of raising funds and establishing a programme of sustained income. This will be held in the Lau Gar Trust Fund for the creation and running of a centre that befits a large, national, martial arts group. 
As the fund is held on behalf of members of the British Kung Fu Association, the Guardians have adopted a constitution to provide fundamental governance principles for running and managing the Lau Gar Trust fund with professional integrity in the best interests of all members of the Association.
