Sifu Francis Fong Seminar – February 2013

Robin French with Sifu Francis Fong and Sihing Kevin Lee - February 2013

The seemingly never ending winter had a brief respite in February 2013, when Sifu Francis Fong returned to Laurence Sandum’s Black Belt Martial Arts Academy in Chelmsford, for his second ever visit to the UK.

Sifu Fong delivered six sessions over his four day visit, for the most part focusing on Wing Chun, with some time given to Jun Fan Gung Fu.

After my experience of training with Sifu Fong during his last UK visit at the end of 2011, I knew that this seminar was an absolute must to attend and was super excited for it.

Yet again, I was absolutely blown away by the whole experience; walking away with not only some new drills to master and points to incorporate, but massively inspired to continue my martial arts journey.

Travelling from Sifu Fong’s own full time martial arts academy in Johns Creek, Georgia, USA for the seminar was Sihing Kevin ‘Kev Kev’ Lee. An inspiration in his own right, Sihing Kevin exemplifies the Jeet Kune Do (JKD) mindset, selecting his own personal blend from a whole host of arts that he trains in, including Wing Chun, Jun Fan Gung Fu, Kali, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, and Combat Submission Wrestling (CSW).

I cannot wait for the date of the next Sifu Fong UK seminar to be announced; I can guarantee my name will be first on the list when it does!

I would like to thank Sifu Fong for travelling across the Atlantic to deliver another outstanding weekend of information; every person I have spoken to that attended, from raw beginner to experienced martial artist, walked away with masses of things they can use in their own training.

Finally, as ever, I would like to give special thanks to Guro Laurence Sandum for his hard work, time and effort he puts into this and every seminar that he hosts, without which, they would not happen!
