About the Book
Through a series of exclusive interviews, 25 direct students share anecdotes, reflections, and personal stories about their late teacher, whose influence still resonates in the Wing Chun community today. Along with Sifu Wong’s eldest son, John Wong Hong Chung, there are a host of his direct students such as Philipp Bayer, Rolf Clausnitzer, Tom Conba, Ernest Höfler, Victor Koo, Gary Lam, Johnny Tam Yuk Lam, Ron Lee, Wan Kam Leung, Lewis Luk, Chan Kim Man, Wu Chun Nam, Philip Ng, Rusper Patel, David Peterson, Clive Potter, Attilio Reale, John Smith, Jack Tsoi, Enzo Verratti, Ivan Wong, Mark Wong, Cliff Au Yeung and Jerry Yeung.
This stunning full-colour volume also contains exclusive, recently uncovered news stories published in the Wah Kiu Yat Po newspaper in 1957, relating to Sifu Wong’s controversial fight in Taiwan. Also, never-before-seen photos and a chronological timeline highlighting some of the significant events in the life of Sifu Wong. More than a tribute, this book is an invaluable collection of memories and wisdom.
