Somerset Wing Chun Kung Fu

Sifu Bill McKay - Profile

I have been training in Martial Arts for the best part of 40 years. Starting with Judo in the mid to late 60's, and boxing in the RAF in the early to mid 70's

In 1977 I did a 4 year period of Kook Sul Won, a Korean Martial Art, under Richard Roper in Norwich.

Due to service postings, from 1981 until 1987 I also had the opportunity to train Shotokan and Wado Ryu Karate, first in the UK, and from 1985 - 87 in Germany under Rene Gestenberger as part of his Spandau Wado Ryu class, whilst stationed in Berlin. 

On my return to the UK in early 1987 I started to train in the Wing Chun style, 5 hrs a day 5 days a week, with Sifu Harry Canon.

I first met Sifu Kwok in late 1987 and have been in his lineage ever since.

I am in constant contact and communications with Sifu Kwok to ensure continuous improvement of my Wing Chun standard and have accompanied him on a number of occasions to Hong Kong and mainland China.

I also regularly train with UK and Chinese Sifus I have met and become friendly with over the years.

Somerset Wing Chun Kung Fu was formed with the objective of offering quality Wing Chun Kung Fu training to students in the Somerset area, without being limited by politics or restrictions.
