    Hi Christopher. First fellow comes to mind is sifu Ken Low. He's just down the street from me in south Vancouver. He teaches a few styles, the southern fist being Hung Gar. I'm not sure who all his masters were for that except one, the well known master Stephen Chang. Sifu Low specializes in young adult and youth but teaches all ages. After being a fixture in Vancouver a long long time in community centers, he finally got his own kwoon last year, which my sweetheart and I attended the grand opening last year.

    UBC has a program I believe, but still, you shouldn't have much trouble finding this style in Vancouver.

    I understand there is a Stephen Chang out there who teaches Hung Gar style as well.

    UBC has a program in HG and I believe that's what you'll find at the Chinese Freemasons place.

    Hung Gar in Vancouver

    Richmond BC - Joseph Kwok (Bao Chi Lum on No. 3 Road and Cambie across from Yaohan)
    Richmond BC - Wilson Wu www.kungfu-ocean.com
    Vancouver BC - Raymond Cheung www.shaolinhunggarkungfu.com
    Vancouver BC - Ken Low www.kenlowkungfu.com
    Vancouver BC - Francis Chan teaches out of a Chinatown society Gee How Oak Tin.
    Vancouver BC - Stephen Chang

    In my opinion Wilson Wu would be my preference out of those. Learnt his Hung Gar and other styles in Guangzhou, China. He also works a lot of applications and such.

    244 Keefer Street, Vancouver Chinatown. You can Google map them.

    That society used to be home to Wilkie Wu's Bak Mei, but like a lot of Chinatown teachers he moved on (in this case to Yin Ping Society). Francis Chan took over maybe a half year ago.

    Most of those Chinatown Society clubs function on weekends. So popping down mid day would be your best bet.

    Hope this helps.
