Shaolin Kung Fu 

Hernan follows and teaches traditional Shaolin Kung Fu Wu Shu. He has competed and won medals at championship level in both NZ and Latin America, and has a real passion and dedication for teaching.

Throughout his martial arts training, Hernan has studied under a number of martial arts masters. Here in New Zealand, Hernan regularly trains with a Chinese teacher (Sifu) in Christchurch who spent his teenage years as a monk and martial artist at the Shaolin temple in China.

Hernan believes that Kung Fu, which translates as 'to do it perfectly' is for everyone. He welcomes any student who has a genuine interest in discovering the jewels of martial arts and Shaolin Kung Fu. 

Outside of martial arts, Hernan is part of the treatment team here at Newtown Acupuncture Centre, tirelessly applying his martial arts strength to his massage work.
