    Shidi beat me to the punch

    I’m devastated.

    And I’m on set right now so I must stay really focused.

    My first thought when I heard was to shoot you a text, but I didn't want to screw up your headspace for M@A (and I knew you'd hear one way or the other). I'm probably going to use personal time for the second half of the day, I'm having a really hard time staying on the ball here.

    Best of luck over there, brother.

    Obit by my Sihing Ted Mancuso

    Wing Lam Passes: April 25 2018



    Sifu Kwong Wing Lam passed away today from kidney failure following a period of illness. His study, beginning at age 8, brought him instruction from top notch practitioners such as Sifu Yang Shang Wu and Zhao Jiao.

    Training with him for more than a decade, I recognized a teacher truly concerned for his art. His martial background was exceptional, and his practice was unfailing. He was, without a doubt, one of the most faithful and dedicated of all the practitioners I have ever met. His attitude was strong and clear, a physical, moving inspiration to his students in Tai Chi, Northern Shaolin, Hung Gar and other satellite fields. His was one of the first video courses of good quality and wide range, expanding the extended membership of these arts.

    His martial interest took him down many paths. Convinced that Kung Fu weapons were too light and flimsy he started reconditioning and re-designing traditional weapons to the point of making an arsenal of superb and highly sought after instruments.

    His fidelity to Kung Fu itself, minus politics or gossip, created a safe space in which students could practice and improve.

    The pictures, conversations, teaching and inspiration he left behind cannot help but remain for years to come.



    Goodbye, Sifu.
    I was able to attend the beginning and ending of the funeral ceremonies which lasted all weekend. Unfortunately, I had a TCJU meeting on Sunday for this year's TCEC that I had to lead.
