Imitation is the best form of flattery (so they say)
I’ve lost count of the number of students, instructors and even schools that have said they were taught by me, when I have never met them or even heard of them, and by the way, this is long before I started WingChun.Online
The point is this, if you would like to be taught by me then I am more than happy to teach you, just sign up and join the family, it’s not difficult.
A while back I was unexpectedly at a Wing Chun gathering when an instructor came up to me and asked if I was interested in learning.
Being polite I tried to introduce myself and explain that I had merely stumbled across the meeting and just popped in to take a look and say hello to anyone I may know.
The chap however was quite persistent in his wanting me to join, so out of curiosity I asked of his lineage, to which he answered that he was taught by Sifu Colin Ward, personal student of Ip Chun, and had been under him for many years.
Well, as you can imagine I was quite surprised considering I had never met the man before so thought it best to make my excuses and leave.
As I began doing so the instructor asked me for my name and number so he could contact me regarding training.
I introduced myself, “Sifu Colin Ward” I said, “Personal student to Grandmaster Ip Chun” and gave him a smile and my card.
He didn’t call.
