Discovering Tradition Wing Chun
By Kleber Battaglia
At age 18, Sifu Freddy Wong began training as a personal student of Grandmaster William Cheung in Melbourne, Australia.

In 2003, he officially received his level 10 rank from Grandmaster Cheung and became a certified instructor for the Global Traditional Wing Chun Kung Fu Association. Later on, he moved to Tokyo and had been teaching there since 2008. In 2012, he received his Master rank and was appointed the Chief Instructor for Japan and since 2018 is Global Traditional Wing Chun Kung Fu Association’s representative in Asia.
