My Kung Fu

People always ask what do I practice, I say "Kung Fu", they say, "what kind of Kung Fu?" Well, that's hard to explain, because it's my own Kung Fu, and because they don't know me, they don't know what I practice unless they get to know me.  Bruce Lee had his Kung Fu, I have my own.  Bruce Lee created the label  "Jeet Kune Do", I created the label "Freddie's Modern Kung Fu​".  But essentially, I am trying my hardest to promote the teachings of the East through my Martial Expression.  I don't want to choose, but if you force me to choose, then I will say I am promoting the Chinese Martial Arts.

Which will include "Bruce Lee, Jeet Kune Do, Jet Li, Donnie Yen, Wushu, Jackie Chan, Tai Chi, Wing Chun, Choy Lay Fut, Shaolin, Praying Mantis, Hung Gar, Tao, Lao Tzu, Sun Tzu, The Art of War, Confucius, Mencius, Chuang-tzu, Qigong, Kung Fu Panda, etc.

Although most of my teachings will include aspects from all different cultures, if I was forced to only choose one to promote, I would have to say the Chinese culture would be the most encompassing of the teachings of which I promote.  The wisdom from the Sages of China is the same wisdom you will find from the sages of India and Japan.  The wisdom of the Japanese Martial Artist Musashi is not too different than the wisdom of Bruce Lee.  The wisdom of Buddha is not too different than the wisdom of Lao-Tzu.  The wisdom that is contained from the entire world, can essentially be found in China.

I never wanted to choose, but if you force me to choose, I will promote the Chinese Martial Arts and the Chinese culture.  I can wish to be nameless, but even my parents had to make a final decision on what name they wished to give me.  I understand the true way is No Way, but people just don't understand that teaching, that teaching only comes to an understand after many decades of practice.


  1. Freddie's Modern Kung Fu is the realest Kung Fu school in America that i know of. It's nice to see you back on Youtube, Keep up the good work with the school and the teachings!

    1. Thank you for always being here for FMK, being positive and supportive since I've known you. I'm very lucky that we have connected and are continuing to build upon our connection. I hope that FMK will continue to grow and as it grows, I wish to share its success with you. I hope that I will be enabled to be in a position to help people recognize the hidden talents of this world, such as the talents you have in making music.

    2. That's cool man, it's a pleasure to be a part of FMK.

  2. For me, I wish Africa had its own Martial Way. It probably was there but it is no longer. Therefore, if I am forced to choose, I probably will go for the Chinese way because it is the most balanced way that I know of. It is not competitive nor it is lazy. That is way the way of the Chinese is Kung Fu. Maybe that can help find more about who I am as an African. Not trying to display any lack of loyalty or anything.
