Five Forms

Qi Gong & Kung Fu
Lund, Sweden


We practice martial arts according to the family system of our Grand Master Tran Loi Minh, which is called 'South Shaolin Five Forms Combat'. This is a complete and traditional south Chinese martial arts system with roots in Shaolin and it encompasses Qi Gong, Kung Fu, Lion Dance, Sanshou and Tai Chi. Our goal is to develop our body and mind, and we strive for constant improvement and personal development.

Welcome to us and our way of life.

Kung Fu

The Kung Fu system that we practise is called Five Forms, a traditional south Shaolin system. The Five Forms training includes hand techniques (animals, Lohan, drunken, etc), approximately 70 official weapons, chinna (a form of grappling), sanda (boxing), and traditional fighting. Qi Gong, Lion dance, Tai Chi and Sanshou complements the Kung Fu training as well as do strength, flexibility, hardening and mental training.

We practise Kung Fu to challenge and improve ourselves physically and mentally, and to have great fun in the process of doing so!



You must be at least 15 years of age to train with us but otherwise it does not matter if you are 15 or 55, the training is diverse enough to offer challenges and advantages for each age, gender, and physique. Beginners are accepted at the start of each new term. Please see schedule below. You are very welcome to come train with us a couple of times to try out how Five Forms suits you.

Youth Group

Since summer of 2014 we also have a group for the age between 10 and 15 years. The youth group trains according to a system developed within T.I.A for minors and are under supervision of qualified instructors. The system also allows for graduation.

Qi Gong

qigong@sydshaolin.com


Our Qi Gong style is based on the Taoist principles, and our overreaching goal is to find balance and harmony - in our lives and with ourselves. To achieve this we strive to understand and learn more about ourselves, our body and our mind. The difference compared to Kung Fu is that we work from the inside out - our focus is on Inner Training.



We work with a set of exercises where movement, relaxation and breathing techniques combine to improve and increase circulation, and to stimulate our muscles, nervous system and mind. Through these exercises we reach a deeper understanding of ourselves and an increased level of harmony.

We also practice meditation and Tai Chi, where we let our bodies flow through series of movements created to improve our balance, agility and strength.

Qi Gong can be trained by anyone and it is possible to start training at any time, even though it is easier to begin when we start a new term (September and January).

"Kung Fu is not Kung Fu without Qi Gong. Even if the meridians and other technicalities within Qi Gong can be complex, a Kung Fu fighter must master the breathing techniques. Those of you who want to master Kung Fu must master and learn the Taoist breathing technique.

My recommendation: exercise Qi Gong at least once per month."

- Sifu Zi Sin Magnus Dahlquist -

About Us

Our club

T.I.A Lund is one of many clubs that together form the Swedish branch of Tran Loi Minh International Qi Gong and Kung Fu Association. T.I.A teaches the traditional south Shaolin system Five Forms under the supervision of our grand master Dai Si Tran Loi Minh who lives in Paris.

Five Forms encompasses traditional Kung Fu, Qi Gong, Lion Dance and Tai Chi. TIA Sweden also teaches Sanshou, chinese competition kick boxing.

TIA Lund has taught the Five Forms Kung Fu system since 1999. Our style, Nam Siu Lam Ng Jing Kyun in chinese, has its roots in southern China and the Shaolin temple traditions.

TIA Lund is a community where the Kung Fu way of life is the mortar that keep us together. We share a passion for training and learning, and challenging and developing ourselves as we dig deeper into the ancient traditions of our style.

Since the start, we have had the opportunity to study and train within a traditional style of Kung Fu that allows us to grow and develop ourselves, our bodies and our minds, using open hand techniques as well as different kind of weapon techniques. We use combat as yet another way to challenge ourselves, and to gain a deeper knowledge of the traditions and techniques.

In 2012 the Qi Gong section opened, which allowed us to work deeper into the Chinese traditions of Taoism, the energetic aspects, and the perspective of Yin and Yang, while striving for harmony and balance from within.

We strive continuously to achieve perfection, working from outside and within. We challenge ourselves to grow and improve as we live the life of a Kung Fu practioner.

Every journey starts with the first step, so no matter where you are in life, you are always able to learn, grow and challenge yourself.

Welcome to us, and to our Way of Life!

Examination system
