Moi Fa Martial Arts
Since 1995 the academy has taught Chinese Martial Arts (Wing Chun Kung Fu and Mantis Kung Fu) to hundreds of students across Newcastle upon Tyne and the North East. We have students who have been with us since those days and continue to grow and develop.
Chief Instructor and founder of the Academy is Paul Tennet. Over the last two decades he has searched for, and studied various styles with some of the best instructors from across the world including; in China, Hong Kong, Europe and North America. Since starting to teach he has taught workshops to students in Canada, Ireland and the UK. Paul has also competed in the UK and Europe, and some of the students have competed in UK tournaments. Along with these activities, academy instructors are also involved in teaching workshops to various community groups and schools. Workshops cover self defence, lion dancing and tai chi, and are very popular with children and adults alike.
