“Kung Fu is my life and I love to teach it.”

I began training under Si Gung Bill Smith in 1994, and have attended seminars taught by Si fu Eddie Chong and Master Buck Sam Kong. While under the tutilage of Si Gung Smith, I have mastered multiple styles, and have recieved many awards within the school. Kung Fu is more than a martial art to me, it is a way of life.In 2000, I earned my 1st degree black sash, and began teaching Kung Fu. Since that time, I have taught both at the Sil Lum Kwoon and at Salt Lake Community College. I earned my second degree black black sash in 2002.

I recieved my 3rd degree black sash and became a certified Si fu in 2005. In 2009 I had the opportunity in to fill Si Gung Smith’s shoes as Si Fu of the Kwoon.
