The art of Lau Kune Do is far more than a form of exercise or self-defense. It is a spiritual and philosophical path towards self-realization and peace of mind. Lau Kune Do is a wholly American art with deep Asian roots, a blending of traditions both old and new. It is constantly evolving, growing and striving towards uniqueness and perfection. In teaching, Lau Kune Do endeavors to help improve mental and physical health by building self-confidence and securing personal wellness and success.

Fill your bowl to the brim and it will spill.
Keep sharpening your knife and it will blunt.
Chase after money and security and your heart will never unclench.
Care about people's approval and you will be their prisoner.

The Purpose

......I hope that through the long, hard road to perfect the art, one is also able to build self-confidence and overcome different kinds of human weaknesses... insecurity, fear of losing, psychological dominance by particular people, discouragement... in such a way one will not only become a master of the art but will also learn to be respected as a man or a woman.......
