Kent Fung

As a martial artist, Kent Fung has been training in one style or another for more than 25 years. The base of his training has been in wing chun kung fu as it was passed down through Ip Man and his two sons, Ip Ching and Ip Chun. Other areas of significant focus include Tang Soo Do as it is taught by C.S. Kim, and Baguazhang as it is taught by Gao Jiwu. He has also trained in a limited fashion in a variety of other arts, including Brazilian Jujitsu, Muay Thai, Jeet Kune Do, Aikido, Tae Kwon Do, and classical Jujitsu.

Most people get involved in the arts for one limited reason. It may be learn how to fight or defend oneself, to get into better physical shape, to seek another venue for athletic competition, for mental calm and/or spirituality, or as a gateway into learning about an Asian culture. He focused on all of these at various points of his training and he still find lots to learn. On a more practical and professional level of the martial arts, he successfully instructed others in the arts and also applied the principles and techniques in various altercations and professional situations over the years. (The fact that he is still standing, he think, attests to his qualifications in that respect.)

Professionally, Kent Fung is a copywriter, with a particular focus on creating marketing campaigns for financial and investment firms.

When not working or training, he spends much of his time thinking about food.
