Sil Lum Wing Chun and
Hung Ga Gung Fu Academy
Our school has been in continuous operation since 1994 and since 1996 we have been located in the Kodenkan Martial Arts Academy near the cross streets of Campbell and Glenn on the West side of Campbell and South of Glenn. Our school maintains a traditional method of teaching the Southern Chinese Boxing Systems of Fong's Wing Chun Gung-fu and Sil Lum Hung Gar Kuen in separate curriculums. From these two traditional Chinese Martial Arts systems Sifu adopted the name of the school, Sil Lum Wing Chun and Hung Ga Gung Fu Academy.
At Sil Lum Wing Chun Kuen we believe in maintaining a class structure that is dedicated to providing a high degree of personalized instruction. Smaller class structure along with personalized instruction from Sifu allows the student to progress at his/her own pace.
