News From The Dragon ~
September 27, 2016
Hello all Si-Dai and Si-Mui (Junior Kung Fu Brothers and Sisters),
I had a great time at Wing Chun seminar.
A good 3.5 hours on forms details including the staff and sword.
My lineage is good and tight (only 3 people between me and Ip Man = meaning not much chance for the information to
be copied down or changed) and my Si-Fu shares Wing Chun secrets with me mostly because I've been with him
almost 5 years and I've paid him thousands of dollars in private lessons and classes.
I've also had many opportunities to train hands on with my Si-Gung (my Si-Fu's Si-Fu) Francis Fong and Guru Dan Inosanto. Francis Fong, was a student of Jiu Wan, who finished his training with Ip Man. Jiu Wan and Ip Man went to the same Wing Chun school together in Foshan China under Si-Fu Chan Wah Shun. Dan Inosanto was a Wing Chun student of Bruce Lee, who was a student of Ip Man.
My Dragon Wing Chun school is doing great. In the last couple weeks got 2 new male students, one age 13 and one young adult. Both seem to be very interested in the art, and happy with class. In this quarter that are learning a combination of Chi Sao/Poon Sao/Luk Sao, Lop Sao and Pac Sao drills, Trapping, Gates, and of course the forms, with primary focus on Siu Lim Tao.
We will have another outting in October with all the students and family invited to go down to the martial arts store and have lunch at the restaurant next door. I normally take of the new students bills. On that day we will have extended class in the park where all who receive this message are invited and to go with us to the outting.
I will be attending the semi annual Wing Chun and Kali Instructor seminar in October which is 4 and a half days and evenings. So twice a year a get to train with another group of people that have good Wing Chun and Kali skills. Since I am already a black belt instructor it is a nice tune up for me and I get to help train most of the attendees.
Call or email me anytime you want to try it out, train, paid private lessons, or paid classes.
Below is a list of seminars I've attended this year.
