Master Kurt Scott
Kurt Scott is a Sifu of Lung Ying (Dragonstyle) Kung Fu based in Dublin Ireland. Kurt has been training in Dragon Kung Fu since childhood, achieving Sifu grade at the young age of 19 years old.
His training began in Ireland, switching to London England in his late teens after a full time move to London where he lived and worked for 6 years. Back in 2001 Kurt had his first visit to China and Hong Kong meeting the seniors of his Dragonstyle lineage (Chiu Chung lineage HK) and was overwhelmed by the indepth knowledge they had in the fighting application of the style, this was the bit he felt was not quite complete before his visit. He now trains exclusively in Hong Kong, refining his skill set with his Sibak Gung, visiting twice per year.
Kurt has a very close connection with his Sibak Gung and Si-Gung whom he sees as the best Dragonstyle practitioners he has ever met, why? Because after many years working in the security industry as a head-doorman on some of Dublin’s roughest night spots and growing up in a tough area where fighting knowledge was a must, Kurt’s main interest was not pretty forms or winning medals but actually learning what worked in real life combat situations and his seniors had this knowledge in abundance.
Now in his mid 40’s and running a successful Kungfu school and traditional Chinese Medicine business his main focus is on promoting and preserving Dragonstyle as it was taught to him and demonstrating to others that Kung Fu is not a classical mess, but on the contrary a very effective and efficient fighting form. He’s view is that, if you find the right style for you, the right master and you have the dedication required Kung Fu is second to none for street self defense and overall health and wellbeing.
