What is freestyle kung fu?

It is our belief that it is the individual who makes the style and not the style that creates the individual. Every person is unique and there is no “one size fits all” approach to martial arts training. Men and women differ physically; some people are tall, some are short; where one person may have strengths another may have weaknesses and vice-versa.

Therefore our training begins by setting up a strong foundation to work from; the correct mechanics of how to punch, kick, move, block etc. are taught with the reason behind each technique fully explained. Once the foundation has been established, higher level students begin to focus on making the art their own; learning how to apply each technique with the student’s own creativity and personal expression.

No matter what your background or your goals we welcome everybody to come along and experience Freestyle Kung Fu.

Our Instructors

Sifu Frank Mechler

Sifu Frank Mechler started his martial arts training at the age of 6 years old and since then his passion for the martial arts has never stopped growing. Over his life time he has trained in Judo, Tae Kwon Do, Boxing, Muay Thai, and Choy Lee Fut Freestyle Kung Fu. He has fought full contact in Boxing, Kick Boxing, Muay Thai, Kung Fu and MMA.

Sibak Daniel Baker

Daniel has been studying with Sifu Frank since 2007. He has tried various martial arts – Muay Thai, Karate, Judo, Arakan – and has found Freestyle Kung-Fu to be the most adaptive for self-defence or sport requirements. Daniel has competed in Muay Thai events, has represented Queensland and competed nationally in the National All Styles competitions.

Daniel is passionate about Kung-Fu and shows this passion in his teaching.

Luke Hamilton

Luke started training under Sifu Frank back in 2009 after looking into several Martial Art Schools to help maintain his core strength after a bad spinal injury. His dedication to his Kung Fu training allowed him to compete in South-East Queensland in MMA and become an active instructor in the FKFA’s Competitive Fight Team.

The biggest highlight for Luke as an instructor is seeing the incredible reaction of students who achieve their goals after convincing themselves that it was impossible.

Phoebe Mechler

Phoebe has been training in martial arts since she was 4 years old. She began competing in the National All Styles competition when she was 6 years old and has recently begun putting her skills to the test in full-contact competition against Muay Thai fighters.

Phoebe loves teaching at the Freestyle Kung Fu Academy because she enjoys watching the kids learn and grow through Kung Fu.
