Pachi Tanglang Cambridge  劍橋市八極螳螂武術推廣協會

This is a contact page for the UK branch of Pachi Tanglang International, a Martial Arts Institute founded in 1978 by Master Su Yu-Chang  蘇昱彰 (1940-2019), a legendary martial artist from Taiwan, in the line of Grandmaster Liu Yun-Chiao and other masters.

You can find more information about Master Su at the school's Taiwan website and there is plenty to watch on our other family websites. Please visit our Links page. The Mallorca school in particular has up-to-date information.

Cambridge branch was founded in 2003 by Juan Acevedo (衛安皇) with direct authorisation from Master Su. Acevedo has studied under Master Su since 1989, both directly and through fellow paisu students. Lessons were run by Judith and Juan Acevedo, and Dan Collins, until early 2020, but we are currently on a hiatus.  A sister branch in Lisbon, Portugal has started activities as of 2023; see our Facebook page.

If you are interested, please check this page again every few weeks.

Wolfson College, 2013

Our lessons go through Master Su's Taichi Chuan curriculum, which eventually includes some forms of Hsing-I Chuan (Xingyi Quan) and Pakua Chang (Bagua Zhang). For those interested in faster styles, we also practise the basics of our eponymous style, Praying Mantis Boxing (Tanglang Chuan).

WHERE? As of Feb. 2022, only private lessons may be arranged.

WHEN? Only by private appointment.

HOW MUCH? Private tuition fees will vary depending on the style, level and other circumstances, starting at a minimum of £40 per hour.

PLEASE DO inform the tutors in advance about any health concern or disability. This will help guarantee that the most convenient routine of exercises to each particular case is advised, thus ensuring a maximum of effectivity of the training. A touchstone for real Kung Fu is that it should always have a beneficial impact on our general health, including our psychological health.
