Australia’s Kung Fu Legend Sifu Rick Spain.


Beginning Martial Arts

Sifu (Master) Rick Spain has dedicated his entire life to the Martial Arts, moving to Australia in 1975 to begin training in Wing Chun Kung Fu with Grandmaster William Cheung, which proved to be a turning point in his career, “this was the first time I had been exposed to a full time professional training facility”. This allowed Rick to train full time in Martial Arts and really dedicate himself. Even though he had competed many times as a youngster, he was now training for serious competition in a very active tournament scene.

Representing Australia in Kung Fu

After competing successfully in Martial Arts for a few years Rick was chosen to represent Australia at the World Full Contact Martial Arts Championships in Hong Kong. This proved to be a competition highlight in his career made even more special after winning the middle weight division and crowned world champion 82/83 retiring undefeated as the title holder.
