Since 2002, Butch Pornebo has been studying and practicing kung fu.
Butch Pornebo is a 2nd Degree Black Sash Fringe of Choy Li Fut Kung Fu and Yang Tai Chi. He currently trains under the guidance of Sifu James Lendech and Tai Sifu Alan Hubbard from the teachings of Grandmaster Doc Fai Wong who is the president of the Plumblossom International Federation.
Choy Li Fut Kung Fu is a traditional martial arts system based on Shaolin martial arts from the Shaolin Temple. It is known for its effective techniques in combat, as well as its health benefits. The style emphasizes relaxed, internal power rather than stiff, muscular force. This makes it not only more effective in combat, but also better for the practitioner’s health overall. The forms practiced in Choy Li Fut are circular, powerful, and beautiful to watch. They often contain over 150 individual movements, each with a practical application in self-defense. Done at full speed, the forms provide an excellent cardiovascular workout.
He has been teaching martial arts at Eastern Ways Martial Arts in Sacramento, CA since 2005.
