The team show their breath taking moves in Fu Shan China

Master Yau told me that he first met Xia on our training trips to Fu Shan. For those of you who don’t know, Fu Shan is the birth place of the legendary Wong Fei Hung. Xia and his team have been performing at the Memorial hall in Fu Shan for many years and  they attract and amaze Chinese and foreign tourist s alike, with their energetic Wushu performances.

For the past few years Master Yau has organised these training trips for his students and the relationship has grown from there. Master Yau described how Xia has mixed with the Lau Gar group and has become part of the Lau Gar family. Xia is now studying Lau Gar and has achieved 3rd degree black sash in this style, to add to his many other achievements. Thanks to Xia, Lau Gar students have studied Chen and Yang Taiji and Xing Yi as well as Wu Shu.

Now after many years of hard work they have opened a gym in Fu Shan and Lau Gar students can go there independently or in groups to train with Xia and his team or to meet other Masters.

Student Testimony
"I have been training regularly under Coach Xia ever since the first Lau Gar training trip to Foshan was organised in 2005.  Seldom do you find an instructor with such a vast knowledge of Martial Arts; and his impressive ability is matched only by his desire to transfer these skills, and improve the quality of the martial artists under his care.  Therefore, with Coach Xia having recently established a full-time gym in Foshan, I took the opportunity to spend the month of August 2014 training there as a student.  
The classes are dynamic, energetic and highly motivating.  Coach Xia gives 100% and expects the same from all students.  Despite this, requests are always made with a smile and he is very good at judging an individual's capability and how best to push pupils to achieve their potential.  Further to his instruction, senior students are also on hand to provide guidance and encouragement.  The atmosphere is inspiring and eternally upbeat.  It is immediately apparent that the gym is run by individuals who are in love with Martial Arts, and a deep sense of camaraderie develops quickly as a result.  Stretching, Basic Techniques, Gymnastics, Sets Practice and Conditioning form the basis for most classes, with occasional wild cards being thrown in to spice things up!  The great variety was perhaps the most enjoyable aspect of the training schedule.  In addition to significantly deepening your martial skills; daily running, stretching, balancing, leaping, twisting and tumbling ensure pupils quickly attain a level of general fitness that would easily rival that of the cross-fit enthusiast.  Upon reaching an acceptable level, I was also encouraged to perform alongside Coach Xia and his senior students during public displays, in order to further improve my confidence and experience.  

All in all, I believe that Feihong Wudao offers an excellent environment in which to become a more accomplished martial artist, and I would recommend it to any and all students without reservation."

In addition to the scheduled training times, Xia and his team of instructors are happy to accept private students (individuals and/or groups) and will, upon request, tailor these lessons to fit specific goals and aspirations.
