About mindfulness in motion

Mindfulness in Motion is a Kung Fu school located in the northern suburb of Preston in Melbourne.  We teach the art of I Liq Chuan Kung Fu under the guidance of Grand Master Jimmy Heow who is based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  I Liq Chuan can be roughly translated as mind strength form, as such our art is holistic in nature, encompassing the development of both the physical and mental self. 

The I Liq Chuan system started as a training group in Kuala Lumpur back in the 1970s and has its roots in the Hakka Chinese arts of Lee Kim Chow, who migrated to Malaysia during the 1950s.

Mindfulness in Motion opened at its current location in Preston, right near the border with Thornbury in 2016, after running for many years as Victorian Kung Fu and Tai Chi Inc.  


We have classes at Mindfulness in Motion to suit just about everyone.  From our Grasshoppers (5-9 yo) and Mantis (10-14yo) classes through to adult classes. All our instructors have a minimum of 10 years training in the martial arts.
