Welcome to the Hsiu Lung Tao website

Hsiu Lung Tao is a street defence orientated martial art based on the late Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do concepts. The art founded by Sifu John Carrigan encompasses concepts and ideas from a wide variety of systems.

The aim of the HLT curriculum is to help the martial artist grow by exposing him to various ideas and training methods, producing a well rounded knowledgeable practitioner capable of handling himself in the appropriate manner should the need arise.

HLT is not merely a new system created from bits of others, it is a concept that utilises various aspects of functional arts which are effective in street fighting. It is then up to you as the practitioner to use what works for you, after all everyone is different and what works for one person may not work for another.


23rd February: Sifu John will be appearing at the Martial Arts Live Show at the NEC, Brimingham in May this year, if you are interested in tickets for the show please contact John.
