    douglas wong

    Hi there is a master named Douglas Wong who teaches a system called white lotus kung fu. I am curious if anyone has trained with him and knows what his kung fu background is? I'm not asking if he is legit or not, just what styles he had trained in before starting his system, thanks.

    I know he started out with an ancient master from mainland China called Wei Fong Doo, but I never trained with either.

    because white lotus society trains plum flower boxing.

    plum flower = martial path
    lotus flower = scholar path

    thats like someone saying they teach confucius kung fu. its tiny cultural cues like this that make those frauds slip up.

    I don't think Wong-Sifu is part of Bak Lein P'ai-the sect.
    I think he simply named his art that.
    "My Gung-Fu may not be Your Gung-Fu.
    Gwok-Si, Gwok-Faht"

    "I will not be part of the generation
    that killed Kung-Fu."

    of course not. white lotus is a death cult.

    Douglas Wong wrote at least two popular books in the 70's. I owed them as a teenager.

    A couple of his students became actors and appeared in a few movies in martial arts roles.

    He and his students appeared in several articles in the 70s and 80s in Inside Kung Fu magazine. I believe he may have had some connection with the magazine during its infancy.

    I believe his wife, Carrie Ogawa Wong, was quite famous on the tournament circuit in the 70s and 80s

    There are two types of Chinese martial artists. Those who can fight and those who should be teaching dance or yoga!

    53 years of training, 43 years of teaching and still aiming for perfection!

    Out of the plethora of teacher he studied with, how many of their systems does he teach today? And why did he leave each teacher rather than becoming a disciple of any just one? Did he later ever refer to his time with any of those teachers as having been a waste?

    The Old Days...

    There's a nice interview clip of Uncle Dougie at one of his students in Arizona's school where he tells how when he began in gong fu, all schools were set up through associations for people based on which village in Canton they immigrated from. So if you weren't from the village whose school was teaching the style you wanted to learn, you couldn't learn that style.
