Coming to this school was the best decision I ever made, when I’m on the verge of giving up and wondering why I didn’t pick competitive eating over Kung Fu, I say to myself who would I be without it. This school has built me up to be the person I am today, it has given me friends, a new family, a second home and in a way a new sense of purpose. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything in the world

Leon has found the perfect blend of traditional teaching methods with modern sensibilities. There are a range of classes that help with different aspects of mind, body and skill development. I have built a solid foundation of core techniques and am always learning new things. Classes never feel stale and Leon encourages me to develop my individual style within the system.

I now train 3 days a week at the UK Lam Family Kung Fu School and if I could, I’d train everyday. Leon Dogan is a first class sifu and trainer. So I can’t recommend this school highly enough – it has something for everybody (I admit I am guilty of picking and choosing the parts I like best) and in Leon Dogan sifu, it has a trainer who pushes each individual exactly as hard as they require.
ADAM – London / England
Very knowledged Sifu… i very much respect him.. I have learnt to be a better person… Unfortunately due to family and work, training has to be done out of class… but will forever remember his teachings and will keep the tradition alive as long as there is still a last breath in me.

Leon is an excellent teacher, who always manages to help you constantly challenge your limits and continue improving yourself. The Lam Family Style of Hung Kuen is a really great all round system with many health benefits too. I never regret joining this school, which has more of a family feeling and I can recommend it to anybody, whether you are new to martial arts, or not.
DEAN – London / England
Leon is everything you could hope for in a martial arts teacher. He is not only a great practitioner of martial arts he is also a great teacher. His mere presence has you lifting your performance and if you ask him he will make you stronger than you knew you could be. Hung Kuen as a style is fantastic. It has incredible breadth and will teach you a whole knew system of movement and the mechanics of the body and psyche. Attending his school is an unregretable decision; I learnt much; and I miss it dearly.
TOBY – London / England
The last few years I have been training under the supervision of Sifu Leon Dogan. Leon has a superb knowledge of the system both in terms of material (i.e. forms/techniques) and in terms of fighting applications (every time Leon performs a fighting application one can immediately realize the effectiveness of Hung Gar). Leon is an excellent teacher that cares about his students and has dedicated his life to Hung Gar. I feel really lucky and privileged to be one of Leon’s students.

The values of patience, perseverance, dicipline and a humble approach to hard work are difficult to instil in such a young person. However, Loong Fu Martial Arts shows it to be achievable with the right guidance, the latter found in abundance among the staff and expert guidance of Sifu Leon Dogan, whom Loong Fu Martial Arts school is extremely lucky to have. A true personification of all the values described above, he portrays Hung Kuen to not only be a kung fu style but, a way of life.
DANIELA – London / England
The Loong Fu Martial arts gives us the opportunity to practise together but to also attend different classes to improve on different skills. Whether it is sparing, fitness or women only, there are lessons to suit everyone. Leon knows exactly how much he can push us (often further than we would have without his help) and ensures we always get the best out of every lesson. He is supportive and encouraging whilst also being firm but fair. We can’t recommend it enough.
DAVID & PHILLIPA – London / England
In 2006, I decided to move to London. The main reason for my decision was my desire to practice hung gar under Leon’s guidance. I am still in London and I still have the same desire. Over the past few years, I have been trying to put some of the principles that Leon follows into practice in my everyday life. The fact that I keep benefiting from doing so is a constant reminder that Leon is a great teacher.
JIRI – Prague/Czech Republic
I have been studying Hung Gar kung fu under Leon Sifu’s guidance for almost 6 years now, a brilliant time filled with great memories, hard training and much learning.
Leon Sifu is an excellent teacher, and he always creates in his school a great environment for practicing kung fu. Definitely the right place to learn authentic kung fu!
MUSTINAR – Loughborugh / England
I joined this school 18 months ago and have the utmost respect for the style and for Leon who is an excellent Sifu. What stands out for me is the dedication Leon has for his students and the school. He teaches traditionally and trains you hard but he also takes the time to improve each student individually by engaging with them rather than teaching at a distance from the front of class. I can’t recommend this school enough butcome and see for yourself.
EMMA – London / England
I’ve known Leon since the mid-90’s, as my classmate under Grandmaster Lam Chunsing, in Hong Kong. As in the beginning, Leon’s hard work ethic and commitment to promoting the Lam Family Hung Kuen martial arts are outstanding. After Leon’s period of living in Hong Kong, I was very happy to hear that he is teaching back home in London, and continuing to support our Sifu, Grandmaster Lam Chunsing, abroad. Leon learned deep skill from our Kungfu family. It is my opinion that anyone with a desire to learn, who has a chance to train with Sifu Leon Dogan, is quite fortunate indeed!
MICHAEL – San Francisco / USA
After training in several different martial arts from an early age I can honestly say that I have found a truly comprehensive art accompanied by an open and honest Sifu. Having studied Hung gar in Hong Kong, Mainland China and London I believe anyone can greatly benefit from regular training in this tried and tested art. I have personally gained much from my seven years of training at the Loong Fu and still have much to learn. I feel the quality of the system taught here in London by Sifu is so high with so much depth that I really look forward to the next seven years.
MALCOLM – London / England
I felt very welcome and the school is amazing. The teaching is very individual and adapted to each student. The physical challenge is always matching each individual level of fitness. Student’ with more experience are also very helpful and supportive. I highly recommend the school. It is amazing and it has changed my life in a very positive way! Thanks Leon and everybody else involved in the school!
ARYEL – Singapore
My husband & I have been training Hung gar with Leon for about 2 years. Teaching style: Leon is a fantastic teacher. He is patient and will always give 100% at every class to make every student the best they can be. Progress: Classes are structured in a way that you can achieve maximum progress. The school is open 6 days per week & has classes at all different times. We try to get to each class early so we can practice the forms. Leon, Heather or other senior students are always all around to support you how to improve. We have already learnt a number of different forms including learning the weapons. Benefits: We started kung fu for fitness and self defense. I [Kathryn] also train to reduce stress. It really helps with this.

When I first turned up at this school my knowledge of martial arts, Hung gar and its potential benefits for my health and well-being were completely unknown. I had tried many different things, but never really found something I truly enjoyed. For me this system has not only tested my physical strength and fitness, but also my determination and will to improve. I could not have continued to train here without the support and guidance from a Sifu like Leon, who is clearly dedicated to teaching Hung Gar the way he learnt it, passing on his knowledge with no frills or clichés. His teaching methods are simple; train hard, train regularly and put in 110%. As a result, I have never looked back and continued to train at this school as much as i can.
