It is thanks to Master Lam and his teachers that I am able to instruct these two arts. Master Lam encouraged me to teach so that I could use what I have learned to help others. I strive to do just that.

Grand Master
Ip Chun
Grand Master
Ip Ching

Ip Man's eldest son. Like his father, of slight build.
Renowned for his skill at chi sau.

Ip Man's second son. Being taller and heavier than his father grants him a different perspective on Wing Chun.
Master Samuel Kwok

First to bring the sons of Ip Man to the west. One of very few to be a disciple of both. Arranged many exchange meetings with schools in China and Hong Kong (for wing chun and other styles). Very active teacher world-wide.
Sifu Steven Williams

There have been many arguments over what is the 'real' Ip Man Wing Chun. I don't claim to have the answers but rather to keep asking the questions.
Master Kwok has set the example by his continued research. For Wing Chun to grow, I believe we must keep asking questions and finding new answers.
