Martial Arts is not just a workout, it is a way of life. Watching this world going crazy I am happy that I can serve people and communities, make people stronger, healthier; help everyone achieve their goals and become not only Martial Arts Champions, but Champions in their Lives. What makes me different from others: First of all I'm a Sinologist, who brings to students not just fighting skill but Chinese Culture in it's origin.

Secondly I am a rare one who used his skills to actually protect people, when they were beaten up during pe ... View Profile

West Coast Wing Chun

West Coast Wing Chun

We are a distinct Martial Arts institution specializing in "Yip Man" or "Ip Man" Wing Chun Kung Fu. Our school or “kwoon” is a second home for many of our students. At our kwoon, the student always comes first which cultivates an ego free setting. This allows students to thrive as individuals and become exceptionally proficient at their art. We provide a well thought out and organized path to educating our students. A linear teaching approach to a mysterious, once secret, art allows superior comprehension and the building of strong fundamental skills, a quality not found in many martial arts schools. In 2010, we trademarked a uniq ... View Profile
