SIFU CHAU LIN FAT IS A VERY HUMBLE GENTLEMAN WITH GENUINE MARTIAL SKILLS AND A DEEP UNDERSTANDING. AT AGE 70, HE IS PASSIONATELY TEACHING A VERY EFFECTIVE WING CHUN APPROACH TO HIS STUDENTS.
When did you start training Wing Chun?
My passion for Wing Chun began while I attended a secondary school in Hong Kong and one of my neighbours introduced me to the art. However, it wasn’t until 1968 that I started studying it properly under my first Sifu, Wong Cze Wing—who was a direct student of the late Ip Man. He taught me a very “traditional” type of Wing Chun, which I trained up until 1981 when I encountered my second Sifu, Wan Kam Leung.
