About Me

I trained under Sifu Kevin from 1997-2001. This was an experence that I will treasure for the rest of my life.

While training under Sifu Kevin and his students, you can develop high level of skill within a relativily short period of time. I often think my self very lucky to have received a high quility instruction and from which I have gained skills that I have put to use in many aspects of my life.

I am currently in Wellington studing towards a BMUS at the Victoria.

We are human beings,not human doings

Be as you are,not as you wish to seem

To gaze at onesself often can lead to too much focus on the reflection negating/neglecting the reflected

About Me

 

Began kung fu training over three decades ago, have learned boxing, karate, wrestling, Pa Kua Chang, Pentjak Silat, Eskrima, Kali, Taiji Quan, Fut Gar, Tong Long Kuen, Shaolin,Ling Lom, Ue-Kaha No Roto. First experienced Wing Tsun Kuen in Wellington in the early 1980's whilst primarily learning Fut Gar and Tong Long Kuen but really got serious with the Wing Chun after meeting Master Kevin Earle  when I joined the Timaru Branch of Earles Academy.


My Immediate Sihing at the time were Charles Roebuck, Bryan Finn and Honty Morris (Whaanga). After the first meeting with Master Kevin I was a convert and have practiced Ving Chun Kuen since.


Aside from Ving Chun Kuen I am also a lineage holder of my families traditional warrior arts (Ue-Kaha No Roto) and continue to practice this and pass it on to all those interested in it.

 

Over the years I have been privileged to train with other Wing Chun masters and instructors including Beau Bouzaid and Grandmaster Chu Seung Tin. 

I am pleased to be able to have had these experiences but am also honoured to call Master Kevin my Sifu and to know I got my art from the original Wing Chun teacher in New Zealand.


I now have my own schools which  I established 15 years ago this year in Dunedin. And am now  based in Kaiapoi with branches in Christchurch at Bishopdale, Dunedin, Blenheim and shortly in Rotorua. I also have a senior student in Hervey Bay in Queensland, Australia who is teaching privately and my first student Greg Columb teachers privately in Timaru.
