Bernard is a kind, patient and gifted martial artist with an incredible talent for teaching. He is also highly intelligent and will become more a friend than a master. This is the guy you need if you wish to make gains surpassing what you believe you are capable of.

Bernard is a phenomenal martial artist, and unlike many fighters he can teach it to others. I trained for 3 years in China with him in kung fu and taekwondo. I would not have made the gains I have made, if not for the training I did with him. Bernard is always looking to improve techniques and learn new things, he has a passion for martial arts which I have yet to see in anyone else. His approach can seem tough at times, but that is only because he understands that for some people it can be difficult to push out of their comfort zone. If you want to see improvements, you need to work for them. Bernard is really good at supporting you in this. He is a great guy, full of energy, if you study with him you will not be disappointed.

My Name is David. I work for and run a company that has traveled all over China to work with met train and promote Chinese as well as other martial arts throughoug Asia and further afield. I've met masters, students and many more on that journey and count myself lucky to meet Bernard the head instructor of this school. When I met him I was primarily pissed off! Why? Because he was naturally gifted and already an accomplished martial artist. I grew to both love, respect and appreciate this guy and am lucky to be able to count him as a friend and brother, so this review is far from unbiased. However, all i am saying is honest.

If you have the opportunity to train, or work with Bernard you will be privileged and he will teach you so much. A lot more than fitness, strength building, power, combat martial arts and health practices. Training with him and being able to call him a brother has been and continues to be a pleasure and privlidge.

Bernard De Premonville

Bernard De Premonville speaks, Chinese, English, Spanish & French and is certified as a Yue Jia Quan Master, is a 5th degree belt in Mantis Fist, 3rd Dan in Taekwondo and is certified in acupunture and herbology. Bernard has over 20+ years of competitive martial arts experience. 
 

As an instructor Bernard loves to teach health and fitness using martial arts as a vehicule to widen and deepen his students perspective of self and body balance. Bernard started his marital arts journey at an early age and began teaching at 19.

Traveling around the world helped Bernard not only become proficient in martial arts but also language and world cultures. For 6 years he studied and trainined in China under a number of high level martial arts masters. 

Bernard's speciality is Yue Jia Quan. During his time in China he met and trained with a traditional Chinese martial arts master who was an Military Police Man for the Chinese. The combination of traditional combat theroy and modern combat knowledge learned under Master Sui his Shifu changed his perspective and raised his martial arts level to an exceptional level. 

Master Sui Peng Fei is one of the best Yue Jia Fist experts in China. His flexibility and fighting style consists of getting in close and hitting the bodies weakest points with devastating intent. Using his knowledge he will teach students how to get inside a persons guard and inflict the most physical damage possible. In addition to fighting one person he will also teach how to deal with multiple opponents.
