Wing Chun Illustrated Magazine Gives You Access To The Minds Of Some Of The World’s Most Respected Wing Chun Teachers. Best Of All, No Lineage Politics!
Issue 67 featuring Sifu Michael Mehle is now available in Print and Digital editions.
Sifu began his martial arts journey in Germany at age seven. In 1991, he started practising Wing Tsun at Langenzell Castle with his then teacher Sifu Pfaff. When a new era of access to more information arrived, with the advancement of the Internet, it became a major turning point, and he left the EWTO in 2004.
A few years later, one of Michael’s oldest students sent him a video clip of Sifu Gary Lam, which became another turning point. Impressed by the content, Michael attended his first seminar with Sifu Lam in London, and since 2011 he has been passionately teaching Gary Lam Wing Chun.
In this candid interview, Michael talks about how his school was affected by COVID-19, his teaching philosophy, why Wing Chun seems to lack quality nowadays, and how all the self-proclaimed masters and grandmasters confuse the martial arts scene and cast a dark shadow over it.
