Sifu Colin Ward is the founder and Chief Instructor of the N.W.C.K.F.A. and a true Hong Kong qualified Master of the art. He is also one of only 13 people in the world qualified to represent the teachings of Grandmaster Ip Chun in Hong Kong and through his online facility wingchun.online
Since 1976 Sifu Ward has studied many different styles through his development but settled very early on Wing Chun.
It was in 1987 at a Wing Chun seminar when Master Ip Chun (Yip Chun) first took a real interest in Colin’s skill and progress and a friendship began to grow.
Eventually in 1990 he was invited to study Wing Chun in Hong Kong under Ip Chun’s direct guidance and after buying a one-way ticket he started again from scratch making sure that every part of every technique was fully understood.
Since then Sifu Colin Ward has been a regular visitor to Hong Kong where he gives seminars and lectures at the Hong Kong University as well as still continuing his own studies with his teacher, Ip Chun.
Ip Chun is the eldest son of the late and legendary Grandmaster, Ip Man (Bruce Lee’s teacher and said to be the founder of modern day Wing Chun).
