5th Level Practitioner Promotion

We are thrilled to announce the promotion of three Wing Tsun branch leaders to 5th level practitioner.  Sifu Chris Mah, Steve Chan and Gilbert Leal have been taught this arts of kung fu many years.

They deserve to receive this high ranking position because of their progress, hard work and contributions to this Wing Tsun family. This is not only their pleasure, but also the honour of CWTA since this is the first time someone reached such a high ranking instructor level.  We all wish them well in their Wing Tsun journey and keep on developing Wing Tsun kungfu in their respective cities and achieve their goals.


Sifu Chih Sun Promotion


Earlier this year, one of my students, Chih Sun, moved to Montreal and has started his own Wing Tsun class.  I recently visited Montreal to see how he is doing and also gave a seminar to the students there.  I am very happy to see Chih has done very well with his class and his students are all very enthusiastic to learn Wing Tsun.  I can tell Chih has put in a lot of hard work and will continue to be successful!  Seeing these results and Chih’s dedication to Wing Tsun, I have promoted Chih and recongnize him as a Sifu of Wing Tsun.  Chih is the first of my students in Canada to achieve Sifu status. Keep up the good work!
