Head Academy Kung Fu’s mission statement comes from Sifu Nathan Heads personal vision for helping his students achieve remarkable things through the lessons of Kung Fu training.

Jow Gar Kung Fu Sydney is simply a martial system. Its original intent is to teach people the skills necessary to master empty hand and weapons fighting. Originally this mastery was necessary to ensure the individual’s survival in war or battle, but it was also used on a local level to allow people to protect their families and villages.

Really the only thing that has changed is, on an individual level, we are not currently using these skills on the battlefield. We do however practice these skills to ensure our own, and our families, safety if the need should ever arise.

The Chinese term “Kung Fu’ actually means the time and effort put into the mastery of something….Or simply hard work and dedication.

Someone who is a maestro on the Piano would be said to have “Kung Fu” or a person who was an accomplished computer programmer, would display “Kung Fu’ in their ability to program.

It is through this dedication of training to master something that the deeper benefits of practicing a martial art are realised.

There are many paths to self mastery of which martial arts is just one. The Chinese martial arts are particularly useful in this endeavour because the focus is not only on self defence techniques but also the incorporation of specific and unique breathing, flexibility, strength and energy or Qi Gong techniques. The philosophy and techniques of traditional chinese medicine theory are also ingrained in the training methods and bring a practitioner improved vitality and health not attainable through other exercise methods.

Sifu Nathan Head’s Mastery of both Jow Gar Kung Fu and Taoist Qi Gong have allowed Head Academy Kung Fu to develop and deliver programs that assist all of it’s students in balancing the 4 areas of development and growth necessary for a balanced and harmonious individual; When the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual sides of our being are working together we are able enjoy life and grow in an authentic way which is in tune with our spark or purpose.
