Living Through His Wing Chun
By Kleber Battaglia
Nino Bernardo is not a typical martial artist, which is the first thing you realise when you sit down to interview him. Born in Hong Kong in 1946 from mixed parents, Nino discovered and trained Wing Chun under the legendary Master Wong Shun Leung in the 1970s. In 1977, he moved to London. He opened his Kwoon, “The Basement” in 1984, which brought him fame in Europe for spreading the then almost unknown Wing Chun system. In 2000, he moved to Ibiza where he still lives and has a handful of students. He travels to give seminars and share his findings.
