“The ultimate goal of martial arts is not to become invincible, but to have the courage to face any opponent, both inside and outside of the ring.”
Sifu Francis Fong was born in Hong Kong in 1953 and began training in martial arts at the age of 10. He started his martial arts training in Northern Shaolin Kung Fu and later transitioned to Wing Chun after seeing a GM Yip Man demonstration.
Sifu Fong moved to the United States in 1977 and continued his martial arts training under the tutelage of Sifu Wong Shun Leung via trips back to HK. After Wong’s passing in 1997, Fong continued his Wing Chun training under Sifu Yip Ching.
Below is a high quality Chi Sao and Dan Chi demo and below that they get into some Chin Na and even grappling (I’ve done some of those holds but the on-the-ground stuff looks like BJJ). PS he is even more impressive when you realize he is 70!
