Welcome to the Official Facebook Page of The Science of Kung-fu. This Calgary martial arts school offers classes in authentic Bak Fu Pai (White Tiger Kung-fu) which is an internal fighting art that centers around development of ferocious power and lightning speed. The methods taught at this school have direct lineage to the system’s Chinese founder, Fong Doe Duk. One of the legendary five elders of the Fukien Temple, Fong Doe Duk was known for his very capable and lethal hand work along with an extremely formidable skill set in dynamic weaponry. After escaping near death during the destruction of the temple by the invading Manchurians in 1673, Fong Doe Duk traveled to the residence of the Doo family. It was here that Fong Doe Duk passed on the knowledge of his kung-fu system to the head of the Doo family, a medical practitioner named Doo Tin Yin. The knowledge of the system would subsequently pass through five generations of the Doo family to the current Grand Master Doo Wai who has now resided in Southern California since the 1970s. In 1978, Grand Master Doo Wai began teaching Bak Fu Pai to a local San Diego resident named Vincent Peppers. This teaching would continue behind closed doors for 12 years. Vincent Peppers would become one of the first North Americans to become a traditional kung-fu master through this training. Master Vincent Peppers would later go on to form the Sovereign White Tiger Association in 1990. In 2005, Master Vincent Peppers began training Jason Spurrell, the founder of The Science of Kung-fu. In late 2013, Jason Spurrell was awarded a third level black sash within the Sovereign White Tiger Association and with that, the title of Master Shi-fu.
The kung fu skills and methods taught have direct lineage to the system’s Chinese founder, Fong Do Duk.
Shi-fu Jason Spurrell, the school’s chief instructor, is a committed student of Master Vincent Peppers who was a closed door disciple for 12 years to the current grand master Doo Wai.
