A few years later Rick chose Sydney as the ideal location to open a full time Martial Arts school specialising in Wing Chun Kung Fu.
Originally teaching from Rushcutters Bay Squash Center before opening a full time martial arts school in Sydney’s Surry Hills.
During the organisation’s 30 year stay in Sydney’s centre he introduced BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jutsu, Will – Machado family) into our Wing Chun Kung Fu system – following the forgotten tradition that Wing Chun Kung Fu is essentially the first “traditional” Mixed Martial Art system.
“There are a lot of schools in Sydney but I think that this creates a healthy industry that, because of the competition must really hold itself to high standards”.
The school has over the years produced some prodigious talent. Some have gone onto their own schools, some have gone on to win world championships themselves, some choose to remain and teach at the headquarters “Their dedication and talent are the cornerstone of our organisation.” – but all still choose to call our mat their home.
