Instructor: Ian Kilkenny
Instructor: Martin Teefy
SiHing Martin is an instructor for the IWKA at Hemel Hempstead and Watford aiding Sifu Chris Watts since the start of 2016.
Martin started boxing at the early age of 7 and regularly attended boxing competitions all over Northern Ireland, winning most of his matches as he loved sparring and his older cousin, a champion in his right right, trained him weekly beyond the normal training sessions.
He continued to box until about 13 years old when he came across Lau Gar Kung Fu classes in his home town. This period of Lau Gar was intensive as the class numbers were small so the tuition was pretty much one to one. He trained in Lau Gar until he was 18 before moving to Manchester to study. Whilst in Manchester he regularly trained in Wu Shu for the 4 years during university.
Now on the IWKA certified instructors programme, he will continue to provide high quality training as set out by the IWKA curriculum.
Instructor: Keith Grist
After Sihing’s Keith son convinced him to go to a class to support him, he found he instantly fell in love with Wing Tjun and so he signed up. He trained hard thorough his student level and achieved his 1st Technician 4 years later.
SiFu Chris confident in Sihing Keith skill asked him to set up his own school and he is now the instructor of IWKA Bracknell. Sihing Keith also studies Brazilian Jiu Jitsu when he’s not teaching Wing Tjun.
