Congratulations to three new first level technicians, three new technician left to right: Sheldon So, Joshua Tang, and Ben Li. They worked very hard to get to this point and had excellent performances during the tests. Congratulations on passing your test and keep up the good work!
Another good turn out this year for our annual CWTA BBQ. It’s always good to see everyone outside the gym and be able to mingle and talk about things that are not always about WT.
Although we were threaten by the possibility of rain, and there were a couple of drops here and there, I hope everyone had a great time. At least we weren’t baking in the sun!
We would to announce an exciting news of a new affiliated branch had been established. Five Element Wing Tsun Kung Fu Association in Hungary has become our affiliated branch. This is a good opportunity for us to get more exposure to European WT, and allow us to spread our WT to Europe as well. Five Element Wing Tsun is led by Sifu Róbert Török and you can learn more at http://www.wtkungfu.hu/
Sifu Lau is very happy that Sifu Róbert Török and his students join into CWTA family. Sifu Lau will spent more effort on develop and teach the high level wing tsun skills in eastern Europe. All students with CWTA are very exciting this news and eager to meeting and train with out kung fu brothers and sisters in Hungary.
This is the first short film of Carson Wing Tusn Academy. The story is about a kung fu fanatic, Josh Midghall, his road from dreamer to martial arts instructor.
We are very grateful to announce there are four new 2nd level technician after a very tough test on 30th May, 2014. They all well deserved this promotion after having witnessed the hard work they have put in over the years. We are especially very happy that they were able to perform many different Wing Tsun skillful techniques and movements in sparring sessions of the test, and not only chain punching. This was a intense exam that contains few elements like form, random punch, sparring with wing tusn then outsider, and 3 verse 1 sparring. I hope their success can motivate them to train harder towards achieving their next goal. Congratulations again!

It’s been a while since I’ve been back to Hong Kong, and it was really great to be able to visit my family and my Wing Tsun brothers on my recent trip back. Especially, I was very excited to see my Sifu (Sifu Cheng Cheun Fun) again. Sifu is still very energetic and talkative, and I cherish every conversation I have with him. The advice he has given me is integral to what I have become and achieved, and I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I am also very happy to be able to meet up with a lot of my Wing Tsun brothers, many of them are currently Wing Tsun Sifu in Hong Kong (some are quite famous). We reminisced about the “good o’ days”, and we also exchanged many ideas about Wing Tsun. Please enjoy the photos I have shared, and I have also added the names of all the Sifu you see.

Time flies! It has been seven years since Sifu Lau opened his Wing Tsun Kung Ku gym in Richmond Hill, Ontario.
To celebrate this great occasion, we gathered together for a big traditional Chinese dinner on Saturday March 29th. Almost a hundred attendees enjoyed a fun night. There were Sifus from other branches, students, and many good friends that came together to celebrate this joyful event.
During the dinner, there was a special moment which Sifu Lau presented plaques to those Wing Tsun Kung Fu lovers. All the recipients have been practicing and contributing to Wing Tsun for at least 15 years.
Of course, there were game sections lead by our great MC Victoria and Alex. They were very well prepared and organized for the whole program. Everyone enjoyed that night very much.
Again! We wish Carson Wing Tsun Academy all the best and have many successfully years to come.
As with every Chinese New Year at CWTA, we had the pleasure of having Master Jimmy Chan (陳志尚師父) and his Lion Dance team come celebrate Year of the Horse with us.
The very same night, we had our annual Chinese New Year party. We had another great turnout and we continue our tradition of having a pig chopping ceremony to start off the year.
All in all, it was a fun filled day. I hope everyone who attend felt the same!
Happy Year of the Horse!
