Derek Fung is one of the last surviving direct students of the legendary Wing Chun master, Mr Yip Man, still teaching today. Since beginning his training in Hong Kong in 1954, Grandmaster Derek has been studying, practising and refining his knowledge and skills every day since then.

Now in his late seventies, he is still brimming with the vitality and power of someone half his age. He is a living testament to the incredible health benefits offered by Chinese kung fu.


Wing Chun is known for its simplicity and practicality. Grandmaster Derek’s direct lineage to the source of Wing Chun brings not only authenticity of knowledge, but also a streamlined method of learning that delivers useful skills quickly to people of all ages and levels of training.

“The essence of Wing Chun is the ability to generate power, regardless of size and strength,” said Grandmaster Derek.

“I have had the opportunity to refine my knowledge of Wing Chun through years of practice and build upon the real fighting experience I gained in my early years in Hong Kong.

“Through this I can take students at all levels of knowledge – complete novices at martial arts, and students from all styles of martial arts, including Wing Chun – to a method of developing power that they can apply immediately and adapt to any situation.

“This practical and tangible force appeals to thinking people; rather than learning by sequences they are given an instant ability to use this dynamic Wing Chun force for self defence.”
