FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON’T KNOW ME, I AM FROM ENGLAND AND THE WORLD’S FIRST NON-ASIAN, HONG KONG TRAINED MASTER OF WING CHUN GUNG FU. I WAS CERTIFIED TO TEACH THE ART BY KOO SANG SIFU IN 1975.
I began my martial arts training in Wado Ryu Karate in the early 1960s under Sensei Danny Chaganis in the little seaside town of South Shields, in the North East of England—the town from which famed moviemakers, Tony and Ridley Scott, hail.
I later studied Wing Chun under Sifu Paul Lam in London. Paul was the first Chinese master to teach Wing Chun to foreigners in the UK. He was held in high esteem by the local Chinese community there, as a teacher and a businessman.
