For the first time, Sifu Derek Fung will be conducting an open seminar on Wing Chun Kung Fu, focusing on why "effortless power" is the essence of our style.
The number of participants will be limited to ensure that everyone will train hands on and directly with Sifu Derek, a Wing Chun master with over 60 years of experience and a direct student of Grandmaster Yip Man in Hong Kong in the 1950s.
This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity!
Participants will be able to view videos from the seminar here after the event and post follow up questions.
Sifu Derek Fung is one of the last surviving direct students of the legendary Wing Chun Grandmaster, Mr Yip Man, still teaching today.
Since beginning his training in Hong Kong in 1954, Sifu Derek has been studying, practising and refining his knowledge and skills every day since then.
Now in his late seventies, Sifu Derek is still brimming with the vitality and power of someone half his age. He is a living testament to the incredible health benefits offered by Chinese kung fu.
Wing Chun is known for its simplicity and practicality. Sifu Derek's direct lineage to the source of Wing Chun brings not only authenticity of knowledge, but also a streamlined method of learning that delivers useful skills quickly to people of all ages and levels of training.
"The essence of Wing Chun is the ability to generate power, regardless of size and strength," said Sifu Derek.
"I have had the opportunity to refine my knowledge of Wing Chun through years of practice and build upon the real fighting experience I gained in my early years in Hong Kong.
"Through this I can take students at all levels of knowledge - complete novices at martial arts, and students from all styles of martial arts, including Wing Chun - to a method of developing power that they can apply immediately and adapt to any situation.
"This practical and tangible force appeals to thinking people; rather than learning by sequences they are given an instant ability to use this dynamic Wing Chun force for self defence."
