About Wu Wei Gung Fu
Welcome to Wu Wei Gung Fu Holon, the martial arts school where ordinary people achieve extraordinary results. Our vision is to help you feel more capable and confident in your daily life through learning, training, and fighting.
Wu Wei Gung Fu (“The Spontaneous Movement of the Gung Fu”) was founded in the early 1970s by one of Bruce Lee’s first American students, Professor Joseph Cowles. It’s known as a “complete martial art” because it includes elements from diverse martial arts styles, enabling students to cope with multiple combat situations, and teaching:
● Defensive and attack techniques
● Enhanced physical fitness, combining aerobics, strength, and mobility
● Locks, submissions, and throws
● Defense against weapons
● Physical and mental resilience
● & more

Meet Lo-Si Lior Vardi
Wu Wei Gung Fu Holon was founded in 2015 by Lo-Si (teacher) Lior Vardi, certified martial arts instructor, physiotherapist, fitness trainer, and more.
Previously a student of krav maga and traditional kung fu, Lior has practiced Wu Wei since 2004. Following the completion of his military service in the Paratroopers Brigade, Lior centered his life on training and teaching. In 2016, he received his 1st degree black belt under Si-Jo Eyal Koren, the head of Wu Wei Gung Fu, who studied with Prof. Cowles himself and brought Wu Wei to Israel. Today, Lior is privileged to be an elite student of Si-Jo Koren while continuing to teach groups and individuals in his own school.
As Wu Wei advocates constant learning and development, Lior never stops expanding his knowledge and skillset. Alongside his martial arts qualifications, he is a Wingate-certified physical fitness and health trainer, and has gained a Physiotherapy degree (BPT) from Tel Aviv University. In addition, Lior studies movement through the Ido Portal Method, regularly lectures on anatomy and sports injuries, and has created special workshops (The Medical Toolbox) to help athletes recover smarter from injuries.
