Long Beach, California – Aug 12, 2010 - West Coast Wing Chun announces the arrival of Grandmaster Samuel
Kwok, founder of the Samuel Kwok Wing Chun Martial Art Association based in the UK, to Southern

Grandmaster Kwok will conduct a seminar in Qi Gong for Healing on October 10th, 2010 at the Belmont Shores
Chalet in Long Beach, California. Although Grandmaster Kwok teaches through out Europe, Asia, South
America, Africa and Australia, this will be his first seminar in California, and the first time he has chosen to
teach Chi Gong healing to the public.

Kwok is acclaimed world wide for his Wing Chun Kung Fu skills and has dedicated his life to the preservation
of Wing Chun Kung Fu as taught by Grandmaster Ip Man, teacher to the late Bruce Lee. Kwok has been
awarded a BA honor from Manchester University for his lifetime achievement and promotion of martial arts, and
the Samuel Kwok Wing Chun Martial Art Association extends to affiliates across six continents.

Grandmaster Kwok has practiced Qi Gong concurrently to Wing Chun Kung Fu for forty years and considers it
an important component of martial arts training. Kung fu practitioners in China have used Qi Gong to build and
harness internal power for thousand of years. A strike thrown with concentrated and channeled energy is
considered far more effective than an “empty” strike.

In addition to its importance in kung fu, Chi Gong is used through out China in self-healing practices, and
ubiquitously by the medical community. Grandmaster Kwok, though known world-wide for his
expertise in kung fu, has shared little of his life as a healer. He has spent his life-time as a psychiatric nurse
practicing in England where he resides, and has used his skills in Qi Gong to facilitate and manifest healing
within his patients.

Qi Gong is also used in meditative practices in both Buddhist and Taoist traditions. Meditative training in Qi
Gong focuses on breathing, chi or energy direction, deep concentration and intent, and acts as a tool for self realization.

Samuel Kwok has decided to conduct his first Qi Gong healing seminar with West Coast Wing Chun, an
affiliate Wing Chun school residing in Long Beach, Ca. West Coast Wing Chun's chief instructor, Sifu Bryan
Talbot has practiced kung fu for thirty-seven years, and Qi Gong for nearly twenty years.
In addition, he is a certified and practicing Reiki Master, as well as massage therapist. For more information,
