Introducing Linda Hall (Miss Fu)
Linda Hall’s love of fitness and dance started from an early age. Having danced her way through childhood, Linda first qualified in Exercise to Music with the YMCA in 1992 but it was martial arts that really appealed to Linda after meeting the inspirational Chinese Grand Master Leung Guo Qiang, famous throughout Southern China for his Wing Chun opera house style of Kung Fu.
Throughout years of training in this art, Linda also qualified in other fitness disciplines and taught fitness as a full time career in many leading health centres throughout West London from 1996 onwards. Linda has taught martial arts to a number of premiership footballers at Chelsea FC, has appeared on TV promoting health and fitness plus performing in many live performances throughout the UK.
Linda is also qualified in Stott pilates, pre/post-natal fitness and aqua fitness. In 2004 Linda fully qualified as a Chinese Martial arts trainer and was accredited with her Masters in Zhaoqing, China.
In 2005 Linda set up her first club called “Biaw Yian” (meaning performance martial arts) and, through her classes, extended into primary schools and sporting events, always with the sole aim of inspiring young people in particular to keep fitness a top priority.
The idea of Animal Fu came directly from her interaction with infant and junior school aged children, coupled with her experience and extensive training. With this in mind, Linda founded Animal Fu in 2011 with the idea of bringing Martial Arts to young children by translating the best of her learning into fun, music led activities to keep children engaged and enthused. By adding the animal characters with their signature moves, music, stories and verbal sounds she created Animal Fu. She has found that children absolutely love to do Animal Fu!
