[CANCELED] Golden Celebration of Grandmaster Chris Chan’s (Chan Shing) 80th Birthday!

This event has been canceled due to the coronavirus.

For 60 years Grandmaster Chan has spread the power and knowledge of Wing Chun Kung Fu to his students throughout the world. Before moving to America he spent many afternoons with the legendary Grandmaster Yip Man. They would often have tea, during which the elder would bestow lessons about Kung Fu, life, theory, and philosophy to a young La Jiu Jai (young Chan’s nickname, little chili pepper).

The event will feature live martial art demonstrations never seen before. We will enjoy a traditional 10-course Chinese dinner and golden dessert. There will be a highlight video reel showcasing the life of Grandmaster Chan and his Academy. You will have an opportunity for photos and to be reunited with your Wing Chun brothers and sisters.

All ticket sales are online-only, through Eventbrite. Everyone is welcome to this family-friendly event for all ages. Space is limited. Please act fast!
