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 in English at the school's New York website and there is plenty to watch on our other family websites. Please visit our Links page. The Norwegian site in particular has a rich Videos section.

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 are run by Judith and Juan Acevedo.


Wolfson College, 2013

Our lessons go through Master Su's Taichi Chuan curriculum, which eventually includes some forms of Hsingyi 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? Lessons take place at Orchard Park Community Centre, Central Avenue, Cambridge, CB4 2EZ

WHEN? Every Thursday evening, 7:30 to 9:00.

HOW MUCH? Tuition is free, but we charge £40 per month to cover our costs. A first taster lesson is free.

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.
