Certified Instructors in UK

Welcome to a list of UK instructors who teach authentic East River Chow Gar Southern Praying Mantis Kung Fu (Tung Kung Chow Gar Tong Long Pi) in the UK. I will add more to the list as time goes on as I have passed many individuals to the title of Sifu over the years. I have been teaching for more than two decades and proud to have students who have been with me for that length of time and I wish them all the success in their training and promotion of themselves and the art. Many now have their own Associations and teaching this southern art within that framework. Some listed here are not openly teaching and keep a low profile. The individuals listed below have done their time, some training with me in Chow Gar Southern Mantis kung fu for over 15 years reaching the title of Sifu. Some prefer to be as an instructor at my school as a senior, (this title one must have 3 years training). I want to say something great about all of them, for their time training and support over the years and so to wish their school to grow enormously. So go along to their place of training and experience a true authentic martial art by participating in some lessons.
