Shifu Charl started training Shun Wu Tang at a young age under Shifu Charles Gouws in Kempton Park in 1989. His training continued until 1996 when the school closed its doors. Being without a teacher he then proceeded to train in various other martial art systems for a period of 8 years, but nothing as in depth and complete as Shun Wu Tang.
In 2005 he joined Shun Wu Tang again training directly under Shifu Malcolm Hansen. He obtained his 3rd Degree in 2012.
Shifu Charl owns and teaches from the Shun Wu Tang school in Menlyn Pretoria and have been doing so for the last 5 years.
Being extremely physical as well as analytical in his approach, the student’s training consists of all fields related to martial arts and physical development and improvement.
