LokKengKwong2I was born in April 1957, on the same day as my younger brother, we are twins. When I was a child I liked watching the training of my father’s To-Dais. I thought it was a game and like my brother I started at the age of 16 to learn the Wing Chun from my father.

Willhelm BlechAt the age of 26 I first heard of Wing Chun. In this time I never thought that this martial art would be the passion of my life. Nevertheless, Wing Chun ruled my life since then. A little later I read a book containing a photo of Master Lok Yiu and an article in a Karate magazine about a journey to Hong Kong and a visit to this Wing Chun master.
