DOO WAI'S legacy

White Tiger Boxing is a kind of Hakka Kung Fu style. It belongs to the first of the five tiger boxing of Emei family (i.e. White Tiger Boxing, Black Tiger Boxing, Tiger Claw Boxing, Tiger Roaring Boxing, and Tiger Shape Boxing).

Fung Do Duk was a high ranking teacher in the Shil Lum Temple located in the Fukien Province of China.

After the well known escape of Fung Do Duk from the burning and total destruction of the Fukien Shil Lum Temple, Fung Do Duk broke his ties from Shil Lum in order to remain hidden from the Qing Emperor and the bounty that was placed on his head.

Doo Tin Yin, at that time, was the sole holder of the Doo family's healing art, developed over 3000 years from the very roots of ancient Chinese folk culture to the Emperor’s court as his personal physician, thus representing a vast wealth of ancient healing knowledge. Doo Tin Yin gave Fung Do Duk refuge in his home from capture and execution and risked his life and his family's life in doing so. In exchange for his life and freedom, Fung Do Duk passed his knowledge to Doo Tin Yin as the 1st generation Doo family inherited grandmaster of the White Tiger Kung Fu system of martial arts. If Fung Doe Duk had been captured by the Qing Emperor, there would be no White Tiger Kung Fu today.

Because of Doo Tin Yin's great influence as a very high ranking official, he was able to arrange the admittance of Fung Do Duk into the O’mie Mountain Daoist's temples in the Sichuan Province of China. Here Fung Do Duk gained a vast wealth of knowledge about ancient Daoist internal arts, healing and self preservation. As a Daoist monk, Fung Do Duk traveled for many years throughout remote China mastering and collecting fighting and healing skills from numerous tribes and villages. Fung Do Duk combined and perfected this collected knowledge to create his awesome ultra-internal system of kung fu called White Tiger.


The one and only Sixth Generation Grandmaster Doo Wai of the Family Inherited Bak Fu Pai "白虎派" (White Tiger System) of Southern Chinese Kung Fu is able to bring you rare knowledge that has been passed from generation to generation within his family since 1644 A.D. In the 1970's Grandmaster Doo Wai decided to make his family inherited White Tiger Kung Fu art available to the public for the first time since the 17th century! Bak Fu Pai is a rare style, it was preserved for many centuries. 

This system has been a closely guarded secret of the Doo family that has been meticulously preserved and passed down through the family since the 1600's. The Doo family served as the right hand to Chinese emperors and their security force advised, healed, and protected six generations of emperors during feudal times. They were responsible for both the emperor's physical safety as well as his health and well-being.
